Rotten to the Core: The Real Dirt on Bostons Big Dig PDF

Christy Mihos

The Big Dig, Bostons scandalous Central Artery/Tunnel Project, was the largest, most expensive, most complex public works project in the history of America, the so-called Eighth Wonder of the World with a price tag, factored for inflation, greater than the collective cost of the Panama Canal, Suez Canal, Hoover Dam and the Egyptian Pyramids of Giza--$24 Billion Dollars.
This manuscript, titled Rotten to the Core: The Real Dirt on Bostons Big Dig, is a first-hand account-an inside story told by the projects principal whistleblower-of the bilking of the American taxpayer with the unspoken approval of four U.S. presidents, the deception of some of the most prominent politicians, both Democrats and Republicans, and the gross mismanagement of one of the worlds largest and most politically connected engineering and construction partnerships.
This is a story about behind-the-scenes reality, not the glowing Big Dig press releases, the elegant ribbon cuttings, and the praises bestowed on insiders and outsiders, who sucked the lifeblood out of our weary taxpayers. It is a sordid tale of how Boston became the laughing stock of the nation with an open-wallet of a public works project ten times over its initial $2.3 billion budget.
The end result was a product riddled with defects that has been the cause to date of several deaths and dismemberments, not to mention the substandard concrete that has leaked millions of gallons of salty and corroding Boston Harbor water into Big Dig tunnels. The tunnels of the Big Dig are not safe, but no one wants to pull the plug and do what is right for the taxpayers who are footing the bill for this folly. That is the real truth and what comes in the near future will be more tragic than anyone could ever have imagined.

Where there is truly a legitimate reason, solitary confinement is a tool that needs to exist….but it should be used justly and intelligently. The toxic consequences of a brutal system are real, but the answer is not to make the brutal system more brutal and larger/more powerful.

A big lyrics book (yes, real words are being sung and spoken!) is included, appropriately stylized to the point of illegibility. Looking like a fucked edition of those Magic Eye books with the hidden pictures I could never see as a kid (and probably still can’t as an adult either). It feels like a momentous event when I make out a phrase in the book and on the record at the same time.

With Big Red hunkered down in the back, we head to Boston’s Logan Airport, where I will depart for JFK in New York, where my long-planned travels to the fabled Three Kingdoms of the Himalayas will begin. We arrive at the airport where the big guy at the check-in counter moans when he lifts Big Red on the scale. “Miss, your suitcase weighs The Project Gutenberg eBook of The Conquest, by …
