Cheer: Bostonians offer shelter for stranded volcano travellers
We all know that Bostonians have a deserved reputation around the country for not being the friendliest drivers or the most open and welcoming of people. Maybe it's the long, cold winters. Maybe it's the excessively high taxation - sales tax, beer and wine tax, income tax, excise tax, cigarette tax, property tax (which Deval Patrick promised he'd reduce if elected) etc.
So it's nice to see that many Bostonians, in our perpetually grumpy moods, have gone out of their way to offer their homes to those stranded at Logan from abroad after the initial eruption of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano in Iceland.
Check out this link from Facebook to see what I mean.
