    Now that GE is in shambles, I wonder how Boston feels about the incentives it offered? According to yesterday’s Boston paper, they are now building a heliport for GE. I seem to recall picking up a friend at a heliport in Boston. Perhaps that location is not right for GE.

      Just wondering how much longer there will be a “Boston paper”. The Herald is in bankruptcy and the Globe is on life support. So much for “Never argue with a guy who buys ink by the barrel”.

    Looking at the bigger picture, these and other examples are why the Fed Govt needs to shrink top-down regulations and let states experiment with different ideas. Let RI be big union, social justice and so forth. Let Texas do what Texans like; Californians the same. And then let people vote with their feet.
