Not Done With Medfield Yet

[ The coolest house in Medfield — and children are still allowed to live in it. ]

Medfield made the Boston Globe in a story headlined with “Welcome to Medfield, especially if you don’t have children.” Medfield, like many other similar small towns in Massachusetts, has been encouraging “over 55” developments because it costs so much for the town to operate the public schools.

I’m not sure which is a stronger indication of a moribund culture: the quarantining of children for economic reasons, or this.
