I think the people who shot down the town budget override should be forced to haul everyone else’s leaves to the composting center. Because of them, the town had to eliminate curbside leaf pickup, so every day I have to fill up the car with big bags of leaves and drop them off on the way to work. And I’m one of the lucky ones, because the composting center really is on the way to work for me; I feel really sorry for some little fifty-year old woman who lives in southeast Lexington and works in downtown Boston or Cambridge. This is what happens when people aren’t properly educated about social contracts and the value of cooperation for everyone, and instead their decisions on a selfish basis like “I don’t have kids so I shouldn’t pay for schools”.
