Hello Turtle Riders. As you know if you follow Turtleboy we are constantly getting censored and banned by Facebook for what are clearly not violations of their terms of service. Twitter has done the same, and trolls mass reported our blog to Google AdSense thousands of times, leading to demonitization. We can get by and survive, but we could really use your help.

Now that Worcester will be the home of the Red Sox Triple A affiliate team the powers that be have decided that Kelley Square needs to be fixed. Evidently it was all fucked up, which was OK with them, until the Red Sox wanted to come to town. Makes sense. Now here’s their plan:
What purpose does this serve? What problem is this solving? It’s the same thing as it was before except Millbury Street goes one way in the opposite direction, and they’ve added a huge peanut in the middle of it. Now if you wanna go from Madison Street to Green Street you evidently have to do the hokey-pokey all around that gigantic peanut instead of, ya know, turning left. Makes sense.
Kelley Square shouldn’t be fixed because it doesn’t need to be fixed. It’s perfectly fine the way it is. And if you haven’t figured out how to navigate it yet you should be banned from Worcester. To demonstrate how easy this is I decided to drive through it today, coming from Madison Street towards 290. Often when you do this there will be a long line in the right hand lane going back to the World Star Burger King because the idiot in the front of the line doesn’t know how to get through Kelley Square. Fear not, there is a solution to this. This is how it’s done people.
And yes, I know I need to clean my windshield, but my wipers suck. It’s on my list of things I need to do. But yea, that’s how you drive through Kelley Square. You don’t wait and ask permission to cut into a lane. You just go. That’s the only rule. If everyone just goes then it will be smooth and efficient. If people worry about the rules of the road then it fails. A gigantic peanut will solve none of this, because as usual the people who run the city of Worcester really like to spend money on stupid crap that some city developer sold them on. Keep Kelley Square great again.
