This NYC native also has a case of Boston’s ‘little-town blues’ RE “GISELE: Those little-town blues’’ (Editorial, Oct. 6): The fact that Boston is a small town, according to Gisele Bundchen, is evinced by the fact that its flagship newspaper would bother to waste space on its editorial page devoted to refuting her comments.

By the way, from the perspective of one who grew up in the sacred and holy city of New York, Boston is a small town: In 34 years here, I have yet to find a decent bagel. Bialys simply do not exist outside of a factory-delivered plastic package. The Theatre District is second rate. The Boston Lyric Opera is worse.

It is also a small-minded town: The Red Sox were the last team in Major League Baseball to put African-Americans on its roster. The violence generated by school busing was intense. And even today, there is intolerance of thought beyond the standard liberal line.

If I did not have grand- children living here, I would be gone in, well, a New York minute.
