If only Mike Ross had raised this issue during the mayoral race

Sad Mike Ross is sad about seagulls

Mike Ross tapped out a column today that's ostensibly about the problems with the American patent system but which is really about his hatred for seagulls.

Some see the world for all its glory; I see a bunch of problems in need of tinkering. My latest annoyance is seagulls. A peaceful day on the beach can suddenly turn Hitchcock when errant sunbathers leave unattended bags of chips on their blankets. I swear I once saw a seagull unzip a handbag on Good Harbor Beach in Gloucester.

    have ever suffered what I like to call a "Tweety attack" on your car. Seagull waste is nasty stuff (and very hard to clean off too).

    Agents of Karma

    I saw a woman stop at the middle of the Summer St. bridge over the channel, and start taking things out of her hand bag (trash, wrappers) and throwing it in the water!

    I had no idea why she was doing this noxious thing, but the Seagulls arrived most quickly to investigate - and shit all over her nice black coat and hat.

    If thinking up great ideas were all one needed to do, we’d all be rich like Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg.

    I think you're giving us all way too much credit, Mike...

    "Some see the world for all its glory; I see a bunch of problems in need of tinkering."

    Kind of a pessimists version of Robert Kennedy's:

    "There are those who look at things the way they are, and ask why... I dream of things that never were, and ask why not?"
