Next mayor must fix city’s plumbing

KUDOS TO Brian MacQuarrie for discovering what millions of tourists — and residents and businesspeople in the North End — have been complaining about for years: the lack of a place to go. (“Tourists find relief scarce on Freedom Trail,” Metro, June 20)

But there’s relief at the end of the toilet-free trail: Mayor Thomas M. Menino, who loves to be known as the urban mechanic, is finally retiring. With luck, his successor will be what Boston sorely needs — an urban plumber.
