More Nontroversy!

Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in!

The letters to the editor have poured in at The Sun re:. . . you guessed it! Honfest!

Read all about a resident's complaint about a weekend without parking here. More complaints and voices of reason follow in the comments.

Then, there's these letters, which conclude with some thoughtful words from Mary Rizzo--a woman who seems to have had some Hampden connection in the past:

"Honfest, which may be the city's largest neighborhood festival, is a complicated event in a neighborhood with a long, complicated history. For that reason, there can be no one right perspective on it. All perspectives should be considered, including understanding how some women use it to connect with the past."

That is very true and us precisely why calling this CONtroversy a NONtroversy just because some people don't see the problem is not helping the situation. Not listening is why we're where we're at.
