Thick as a brick

I noticed several piles of these bricks on the Cambridge Street side of the Hurley Building in Boston. Isn't this like naming your product Titanic Rivets or John Hancock Tower Windows? Yet these brickmakers proudly associate themselves with the worst public space in the world. Speaking of bricks, I was disappointed to see this in Davis Square this morning: This looked like it was going to be an interesting building before they started to add the brick veneer. I'd rather that they leave the blue wrapping paper exposed. But I guess Cotton Mather once warned against brightly colored buildings, so that's not an option.
