In which other people read Bacon's Dictionary of Boston so you don't have to:
Adam Gaffin at Universal Hub takes the bait, and discovers why Boston is called "the Athens of America." John Daley notes Boston has always had problems with fountains. Boston Menu Pages goes for the restaurants. I'd like to throw in the origins of the Boston baseball teams wearing red stockings.
If you write a blog post about Bacon's Dictionary of Boston let me know so I can add it to the list.
