No more hanging chads! Pam Wilmot gets us up to speed on H.4156, a bill to be debated on Beacon Hill today that seeks to have the president elected by simple plurality, rather than by a bunch of electors.
Remember that nine-alarm fire in the Back Bay in April? The Boston Fire Department today announced:
The cause of the 9-alarm fire on April 7, 2010 at the Beacon Towers Condominium building, 483 Beacon Street, has been found to have been an electrical short circuit. Specifically, an extension cord running under a piece of carpet in a seventh floor unit shorted out to cause the fire. The building remains closed for renovations.
