Letter to the Editor: City Pole is a Sore Thumb

What’s wrong with this picture? At the corner of Virginia Street and Jasper Street in Somerville, this poll was just recently installed about two weeks ago for whatever reasons. The problem with it is its location where it was installed. 
Why would they put it in the way of a pedestrian paths of the sidewalk?

Will the city be responsible for people losing their teeth or getting a black eye or two from it or possibly even a concussion after they walk into it?
commonsense is priceless!

  1. I am sorry for you that you feel that this “Great Tribute” shows no commonsense. Maybe, you should have asked at Somerville City Hall related to information about the pole – that, to me shows no commonsense!
    This pole is in honor of a Great American Patriot – My Dad…
