UNFORTUNATELY, I have lived in Worcester all of my life, and it is an ugly, bombed-out, filthy, old, exhausted New England mill town that will probably never rise again. Brian McGrory’s no-nonsense, hard-hitting Metro column “Wowed in Worcester’’ told it like it is.

Worcester has no downtown to speak of, and what it has is composed of many boarded-up stores that have remained that way for years.

Worcester’s claim to fame is its “Medical City,’’ which it desperately needs for its many residents who are so depressed to live there.
