Ron Newman reports Jonathan Monsarrat's lawyer has filed a motion to dismiss Monsarrat's lawsuit against him, former Somerville Journal editor Deb Filcman and 100 unnamed people with prejudice, which basically means Monsarrat can't file it again.

P. 41(a)(1)(i), the Plaintiff, Jonathan Graves Monsarrat, in the above-captioned matter, hereby files and gives notice of dismissal, with prejudice and without costs to either party, as to Deb Filcman, Ron Newman, the Doe Defendant identified as Doe Defendant "srakkt" in paragraph 51 of the Amended Complaint, whose real name is Richard James Scheffler of Somerville, Massachusetts, and John and Jane Does 1-99, as defendants in the Amended Complaint.
Boston Police report they continue to investigate rambling letters that string together sentences out of phrases from "al Queda" to "poisonous organs in animals," but that they do not think they pose a "credible" threat to local students. Police today released a list of the 24 schools that received the letters yesterday, add they have no clue why somebody dropped letters in Texas to them specifically and that additional letters could pop up, given the vagaries of postal service:
Adams Elementary School, Beethoven Elementary School, Boston Community Leadership Academy, Boston International High School, Boston Latin Academy, Charlestown High School, Community Academy of Science and Health, Dorchester Academy, Edison K-8 School, Fenway High School, Gardner Pilot Academy, Henderson Elementary School, Irving Middle School, Mather Elementary School, McCormack Middle School, McKinley South End Academy, Murphy K-8 School, O'Bryant School of Mathematics and Science, O'Donnell Elementary School, Ohrenberger School, Quincy Upper School, Roger Clap Innovation School, Russell Elementary School, Tobin K-8 School.
I took one bite, just one, and this was my immediate reaction: "You gotta be f*cking kidding me." Yes it was that good. I know ... not something you normally see in an ice cream review but hey, this is how Dot Rats roll.
