Thank you very much for the comments. And thanks for the ribbon! What a nice surprise.

Was actually out showing our DPC friend, Lost, around Boston, and this seemed about right. There's a bronze donkey in the courtyard and I thought I had a good story to tie it all together with the political party and all, but I couldn't quite get a good angle.

This is not very exciting, and I preferred the stories presented in many of the other photos, but it is a pretty building.

The new Boston City Hall is of course already built, and it is the crowning achievement of communist architecture.

Very nice shot of the grandiose facade of City Hall. Solid, imposing if not quite welcoming. My take on the title is "business as usual." What I also discern is that it's, in fact, just a grandiose facade. Cynically speaking, behind it all are self-serving, greedy, hypocritical, venal.... business as usual politicians/scurvy knaves.
