Dogs Against Roofracking has a JP chapter


Roving UHub photographer Gretchen Van Ness reports this morning from Centre Street in Jamaica Plain, where she saw:

A Toyota Camry with a very wet stuffed dog lashed to the roof wearing a t-shirt that says "Shame Us." Don't know who the owner is, but there are plenty of crazy dog people in JP! (I'm one of them, I have to admit).

spotted in Allston

Spotted him in Allston/Brighton (Cambridge Street) the other day. Didn't get a close enough look to see what it was all about but I assumed it was a Romney thing.

In a state where being caught

In a state where being caught with a dead girl or live boy still results in politician getting reelected multiple times, somehow I think putting a dog on a roof-rack IS THE LEAST OF VOTERS' CONCERNS.

Corruption and dumb voters is not at all unique to MA or N.E.

I've lived in other parts of the country and have close friends and family members who also live elsewhere. EVERYWHERE down south [southeast and southwest] has major corruption problems and their full share of dumb voters. Texas is off the hook. California is bad. I'm not aware of anywhere where this isn't a serious issue.

But I'd admit Massachusetts and New England are very forgiving in regards to issues like sex and sexuality 'scandals' compared to many other states.

That's a pretty lame comeback

That's a pretty lame comeback because dogs are eaten in a lot of cultures, whereas no other culture that I'm aware of drives 8 hours on the highway with a "pet" strapped to the roof. Lots of early US settlers and explorers ate dogs, including Lewis & Clark (although they never ate their Newf).
