Grinches in Wellesley?

WELLESLEY

Globe columnist Brian McGrory gives the town of Wellesley a tongue-lashing today.

McGrory writes that Boston magazine planned to open a Design Home to the public in town. Ticket prices were set at $25 apiece, with all the proceeds going to benefit the Home for Little Wanderers.

The only thing standing in the way, McGrory writes, was Wellesley residents who were afraid of "potentially undesirable people" being drawn to the house, and who called the cops any time an unidentified car drove by.

The result? Less money for charity, says McGrory. Read the column here.
