Oh dear:


On a particularly blustery Sunday, an 1856 statue of Ben Franklin positioned along the city’s Freedom Trail came tumbling down.

Bonnie McGilpin, a spokeswoman for Mayor Martin J. Walsh, said city officials believe the bronze statue fell over around 1 p.m.

Images shared by the mayor’s office show that the head of the Franklin statue cracked the ground below it when it toppled.

Is Ben trying to tell us something?

Now would be a good time to start paying attention.
