Seeks energetic go-getter, presumably not afraid of getting let go the next time the owners change their Web strategy again, although the job really sounds more like an online producer's job, not somebody in charge of sallying forth into the 21st century or anything.
Yesterday in black and white, today in color, according to Whalehead King, who requests the paper knock it off:
... Mr. Boffo is not any more hilarious in color. For Better or For Worse, is not cuter in color. Spiderman is not more exciting in color. Dilbert is not more insightful in color. Doonesbury is no more droll in color than it is in black and white. They are all just as good, or lack thereof, in either format. ...
The T said today that riders on the Greenbush, Kingston/Plymouth and Middleboro/Lakeville Lines will see real-time arrival info on those platform sign boards tomorrow.
"Displayed in a countdown format on easy-to-read electronic message boards, the information will provide minute-accurate train arrival times to customers waiting for their trains," the T says. The Worcester/Framingham and Lowell lines will get the updates next week, the T says, adding plans are to have all 13 commuter-rail lines operating by February.
Preston Jackson, a Mattapan man charged with continuing to rob Back Bay, South End and Fenway stores even after his photo started showing up on TV, pleaded guilty today to nine counts of armed robbery and one count each of armed assault with intent to rob and attempted robbery, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports.
Suffolk Superior Court Judge Peter Lauriat sentenced Jackson to 13 to 20 years in state prison.
Jackson never actually showed a weapon during his holdups, in which he typically passed a note to a clerk, but was charged with armed robbery because he told his victims he was armed. After his last, failed heist, police recovered a note on the street that read "Give me the money quietly and no one will be shot."
Boston Police have issued an APB for Joseph Pano, the guy who allegedly only got a face full of pepper spray when he tried mugging a South Boston woman at knifepoint on Tuesday.
