An independent state just north of Boston, with two universities and one way of waging war: writing nasty notes and putting them on people's windshields. Has enough organic grocery stores, indie bookshops, and other college-town fripperies to satisfy an army of Sartre-reading undergrads.
Newbie: Why do they call this place the People's Republic of Cambridge?
Native: Because more people voted for Nader than Bush in 2000.
Cambridgeite 1: You wanna go down to Bread & Circus and pick up some pine nuts and kale?
Cambridgeite 2: But that's really out of my way, I was planning to head down to Harvard Books. If only we had public transportation we could solve this problem.
