Jane,

yes! And the parks, and downtown and the superintendent's office and the beaches and the supermarkets. There isn't a safe place to hide.

99% of the motivation behind the extensive coverage of this story is this:

"Ok, let's pack the cameras into the satellite truck and go cover the municipal septic plant that's leaking in Fitchburg...what? In Gloucester? We don't need to know if it's true, anything not to have to go to freakin' Fitchburg. Any of you guys ever been to Woodmans?"

Nice post. Brevity is king.
