It's 70 degrees out and 103.3 is playing Christmas music

Is it time for my annual boycott of Karen Blake already? Gah!

UPDATE: OK, they haven't gone to All Xmas All the Time yet, it's for some contest where they play "one of our many versions 'Santa Clause Is Coming to Town' " and if you're the 20th caller you win just enough money to replace the radio you've flung to the ground in disgust.

Firefighters rescue woman up a creek without a paddle

The Boston Fire Department reports an elderly woman this morning somehow drove into the creek that separates Prime Motors from the abandoned McDonald's off VFW Parkway in West Roxbury at the Dedham line.

When fire crews arrived around 11 a.m., the car was sitting in about two feet of water, the department says. The woman was extricated and taken to a local hospital with back and neck injuries. A hazmat crew was summoned to ensure no gasoline or oil got into the creek, which feeds into the Charles River, the department adds.

Today's tip: Never give a stranger $200 for a $1,000 winning lottery ticket

Wanted dude MBTA Transit Police report this guy's been busy of late at both North and South stations:

The suspect tells the victim he just purchased a $1,000.00 winning lottery ticket, has to catch a train, and will take $200 for the ticket as he has no time to cash it. Thirty individuals have reported to Lottery Headquarters with these counterfeit tickets as victims of this scheme.
