The View From Copley: Week Two

Copley reopened for business Wednesday morning, on one of Boston's brightest days ever.

Although we will never fully return to 'normal,' Boston seems ready to try.

Wednesday offered some proof. And a glimmer of hope.

Even after the two bastards were killed/captured last Friday.

Her shirt reads "GREAT CATCH." (Not sure if a reference to baseball, fishing, or last Friday's city-wide manhunt…)

But then…

The couple who own the dogs, Conrad and Mandy Gees, happened to be sitting at a restaurant table in direct view. They acknowledged every 'awww' and thoroughly-melted heart, saying, "They love the attention, and it makes everybody feel good."

A man unafraid of talking to COMPLETE STRANGERS.

Every time someone would walk by, he'd say things like, "How you doing, America?"

Or [to a white dude]: "We must be twins, because we're wearing the same colors."

All met with smiles and visible humanity.

One lady even bought him a Pepsi on her way out of Walgreens to return the favor.

And that was the REAL news that day.

Whatever this is...

Guy said his friend shot him in the eye with a Roman candle five years ago.

He offered to take his fake eye out for $0.25.

I said I had no money on me.

He took it out anyway.
