Why does Menino keep traveling to Italy?
Hey Menino: run your damn city!
Now there are many reasons you could criticize Menino, but 2 trips to Italy in 3 years, I dont really see an issue here. I assume he is entitled to some vacation time, as many people with jobs are allowed at least some time every year to not show up at the office, and where he chooses to spend that should be up to him to decide. (Sarcasm: Or do you have something against Italians?)
