Geyser on Boston Common

Sonja Boet-Whitaker stopped to gaze in wonder at the Boston Common's newest water attraction this morning.

Sara watched it from the other side:

..when the the #43 bus was stopped in Park Square and the driver informed me and the other passengers that the rest of the route was gridlocked and that anyone in a hurry best abandon the bus and walk the remainder of the route (I had to get to Beacon Hill). Nothing against the cannabis people (and I fully support legalization, etc), but judging from the Common-sized cloud of body odor I walked through (interspersed with the clouds of weed smoke), a little water from a busted main would have done many of them a lot of good!

I see no reason to limit your click-throughs (and, yes, I saw your explanation regarding this one, and that it provides you no revenue. I still see no reason.)

(No offense, Ron.)

I like how some photos show orange cones surrounding the geyser, as if the enormous plume of water wasn't enough to warn people away.
