I've been to Boston and it's a wonderful place. I loved walking through the place, and they do really good Kebabs! Honestly, in my delves into America, I'd put a lot of these places high on the list. This guy is a nut. On the point of progressivism, while I don't view myself as one, a whole lot of my friends are Progressives, and as much as the media makes them look insane from time to time, most are very friendly. This is all anecdotal of course. They question my views respectfully and I have truly changed my heart because of them. Like anything, a few bad apples destroy them all in the minds of some, I'm just not glad I'm part of that some.
Note- I'm very much against the more radicalized progressives but so am I against any radicals.
