City approves one-day pot rally on the Common

This just in from City Hall:

The Boston Parks and Recreation Department announced today that a 2013 Park Permit has been granted to the MassCann/NORML Boston Freedom Rally to hold an event/concert on Boston Common on September 14. The permit gives the group permission to hold the event from 12pm-6pm on September 14.

Organizers had sought a two-date permit for their annual Freedom Rally this year.

Citizen complaint of the day: Broken heart in East Boston

Broken heart

An alert citizen reports the Pulse of the City heart installation outside the East Boston Health Center in Maverick Square is already broken, only four days after it was installed.

The heart, which emitted music based on the pulse of whoever held its handles, was a twin to the heart stolen from Christopher Columbus Park in the North End.

Are we gonna need a bigger bay?

The Globe's David Ryan posted a photo of something very finny sticking out of the water in Pleasure Bay today as a wind surfer circled it.

Some immediately cast doubt on the idea, saying it was more likely a sunfish, because a shark would have a tail fin sticking out of the water as well, but who knows if a giant squid out in Dorchester Bay didn't snack on that first.

The Gloucester Times, which has a particular interest in the life aquatic, says our waters have been rife with sunfish this year. A Gloucester lobster wholesaler says his lobstermen have been reporting the same.

You may recall the similar incident earlier this year in Weymouth.

Might be time for guy known to police to relocate

A Chelsea man was arraigned yesterday on an armed-robbery charge for a Sept. 2 robbery at an East Boston drugstore.

Officers arriving on scene at the Walgreens in Central Square were unable to find the suspect, who rode away on a bicycle. But when they distributed surveillance photos from the drug store, other Boston Police officers, a Chelsea police officer and a probation officer assigned to East Boston District Court all quickly IDed Darryl McClure from past encounters, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports.

Two arrested on charges of using Red Line tracks in Dorchester as a canvas

Transit Police report arresting men from Boston and Providence early this morning on charges they sprayed graffiti at six locations along the Red Line in Dorchester.

Police say officers nabbed Joseph Domoracki, 23, of Boston and Max McGuigan, 23, of Providence around 2:40 a.m. on the tracks, near where they cross under Dorchester Avenue a couple blocks south of Andrew Square. Both, police say, were "walking in a hurried state" and carrying backpacks:

Upon further investigation discovered Domoracki and McGuigan were in possession of several spray paint cans, rubber gloves, various spray can tips and other items relating to graffiti. Additionally officers noted both Domoracki and McGuigan had fresh paint about their clothing.

Both are expected to be arraigned today in Dorchester District Court on charges of malicious destruction of property and trespassing.

Innocent, etc.
