No doubt there's a good reason the city banned parking in Roslindale Square first thing in the morning for a rally that starts at 4 p.m.

So I'm sure somebody can explain the need to make sure nobody parks around Adams Park - and to have a police officer on hand to enforce the ban - starting around 9 a.m. even though the Democratic rally doesn't start until seven hours later. I bet the businesses around the park love it even more than people like me, mildly inconvenienced on a trip to the post office.

Campaign roundup: Lynch could run for Senate, tells liberals they can suck it

Democrats hold a get-out-the-vote rally in Roslindale Square at 4 p.m. The kidlet wants to go, but reports that, unlike the last time Deval Patrick came to the Square, she isn't planning to give him a piece of her mind.

Steve Lynch, facing only nominal opposition tomorrow, murmurs he's thinking of running for Senate, again, this time in 2012. And he says liberals better get out of his way.
