    Would feel less icky about this if he walked the walk and offered to house some of the kids at his mansions in Milton and western Massachusetts. He’s set an example for other super-wealthy folks who have built largely unused sarcophagi for themselves. Meanwhile, the Lynns of this world will continue to shoulder the burden while the Marbleheads have nothing better to do than complain to police about “kids playing in street.”
