Rick Rushton impressed the Boston Globe’s Brian McGrory with his love of Worcester. (Yes, you should read the column; no, it’s nothing you didn’t already know.)
Whatever the baby-faced and relentlessly cheerful Rick Rushton was drinking, get me a case. But I soon learned the entire city was gulping it like Gatorade.
One quibble I have with Rick: Elm Park is not “the first public park in the country”; according to the Parks website, Hartford and New York purchased land for a public park earlier than Worcester, and (depending on how you define “park”) the Boston Common could also qualify for that title.
