    I know I get major anguish spasms

    ..whenever some utter stranger on the web makes fun of me or Cambridge inhabitants.

    And it happens all the time, so I'm reeling from one blast or derision after another.

    My skin is so thin, a fly landing on it draws blood.

    And the nightmares of inadequacy roar through my sleep like huge waves poised to engulf me.

    While heavy rain can lead to flooding which could hurt people, tornados lead to destruction that hurt and kill people. A flying 2x4 is going to hurt regardless of how thick your skin is. We are very lucky with the low number of injuries in Revere.

    Now on a more typical UHub type of topic... anyone know of damages to either the Commuter rail or Blue Line in that area?

    I don't read the Herald

    But i will say one thing. The Herald is not nearly as bias as most online Liberal publications. For example, MotherJones, Salon and MSNBC!

    Laurel Sweet, who can always be counted on to do that hard hitting reporting on whether or not someone making a court appearance is a "practicing Muslim"or not.

    Can we all point and laugh...

    ...if your home is severely damaged or destroyed? Your attitude is sickening. And that goes for anyone else who has made light of this. You're truly despicable people. But what else can we expect from a city with this many elitist shitheads?

    Yeah, but...
