    Alcatraz is in San Francisco harbor, a closed prison. What's the chance of a Menino supporter going to an open prison?

    This man was in charge of the neighborhood parking program. I spoke to him half a dozen times and got nothing but stalling and misinformation on the few times he would bother to answer his phone. Now I know why he was too busy to do any work.

    It is a crime we paid this man over $100,000 per year so he could sit around his office all day downloading child porn and refusing to do his job.

    There is no allegation he looked at pornography at work. The disturbing activities are alleged to have occurred at home. I hope he is punished if he is found guilty but it has nothing to do with whether or not he would fix some parking issue for you.

    Herald reports that James Sudusky Mansfield resigned from BTD this week. Must. Be. Trying not keep his pension. So much for being innocent. Kids should stay away on Halloween!
