speaking of the saturday club

i learn that holmes dubbed the boston state house as the "hub of the solar system." which led by extension to boston being dubbed "the hub of the universe."

holmes: "the jaunty-looking person... said there was one more wise man's saying that he had heard; it was about our place—but he didn't know who said it.... 'boston state-house is the hub of the solar system. you couldn't pry that out of a boston man if you had the tire of all creation straightened out for a crow-bar.'"



whatever happened to protesting nothing in particular, just protesting cause it's saturday and there's nothing else to do?

John Hancock's house used to stand where the state house is now. So, your walk took you (at one end) from his giant signature at Fenway to (at the other end) his giant front lawn at the state house.

Edit: I'm having serious typing issues.
