New Bridges of the Charles River

Earlier this week, Hepstrack contributor Mary Boggs quietly celebrated her three-year wedding anniversary at her home in Pennsylvania.  Her wedding was typical compared to most other American weddings, except for two things: 1) after not being told that there was a fake cake layer, she managed to cut into it during the ceremonial cake slicing, […]
