A Tale of Two Tent Cities

It was the best of times in Cambridge this past Friday as Harvard celebrated its 375th birthday. A tent city went up in the Yard and a good time was had by all in the drenching rain and oozing mud. Why not, with a warm bed waiting?

It was the worst of times in Boston as the protest movement in Dewey Square hunkered down for its third week of occupation. Well, worst of times may be a bit of an exaggeration, but winter is coming and it isn't going to get any better sleeping out in the cold and wet.
