Sunday Globe Special: Hung Over

I must have posted too much yesterday:

"One bar employee stabbed, another hit" by Derek J. Anderson and Dan Adams |  Globe Correspondents, January 19, 2014

An employee at The Greatest Bar in downtown Boston was stabbed repeatedly and a co-worker was hit in the head with a bottle Saturday morning as they tried to break up a fight, Boston police said….

Police canvassed the area for suspects, but no arrests were made. According to Officer Nicole Grant, a spokeswoman for Boston police, police have been called to the Greatest Bar 15 times in the last six months, including five reports of larceny and six reports of assault and battery.

Julie Fairweather, the bar’s co-owner, insisted the bar was a safe place, noting that a police officer works there most nights.

Just ignore the shooting.


I took a vow of abstinence so I will just go have a smoke:

"Scents of marijuana and tobacco cut through heavy rain and snow Saturday on Boston Common as a small group gathered to light up in objection to the newly passed smoking ban in the city’s parks."

Going to be a once-a-month thing (if they remember). What a ball drop the whole thing is when you consider the death and violence that comes with legal alcohol and tobacco compared to weed. Must be something el$e that gives the $tate a bug up its a$$ regarding smoking.

"Governor Patrick, students put face on service; Governor joins students busy on murals, projects" by Gal Tziperman Lotan |  Globe Correspondent, January 19, 2014

Governor Deval Patrick briefly joined about 60 eighth-graders, part of the volunteer organization Project 351, as they painted murals and packed school supply bags at the Dudley Street Neighborhood Charter School in Roxbury on Saturday.

“I don’t think you can underestimate the power, the transformative power, of service,” said Patrick, who founded Project 351 as part of his 2011 inauguration. The name is a nod to the 351 cities and towns in Massachusetts.

As long as it is the right kind of service, says a "former Justice Department civil rights chief who later worked for Coca Cola and Texaco." Part of his past that is kept relatively quiet.

Events were held at seven community service sites across Boston Saturday. Across the city, about 400 volunteers from eighth-grade classrooms statewide made birthday cards and packed personal care kits for homeless people….

And there are a lot of them out there.


Hair of the dog, (hiccup) folks. I'm sorry, and will try to do better

It would help if the Globe stopped pushing beers on me.
