Guns, shmuns. Obviously, the most important crisis facing Boston today is sandwich boards on Newbury Street! So Lewis Forman looks forward to more Newbury Street action:
... Maybe the city will offer a "Chalk Buy Back Program" for the shop owners. ...
The Girl in Camouflage, however, says that if the sign fascists think Newbury is too cluttered, they should forget about sandwich boards and work to get cars and motorcycles off the street:
... Sure, all you motorcycle douchebags wouldn't be able to peel out when the light at Dartmouth Street turns red (and you ARE a douchebag if you rev your engine on Newbury Street, dude). And all you people who like to cruise all slow in your luxury cars and see who's at Sonsie and the Armani Cafe, yeah, I'm willing to ruin your fun, too. You can even keep the cross traffic on the ABC streets and get special permits for moving vans or deliveries (even though, come on, isn't that what those back alleys are for?). ...
Blue Mass. Group has the scoop on a Boston clerk magistrate finding no probable cause to send Galluccio's case to a jury - along with comments from Ed Prisby, a Boston lawyer involved in that four-car accident with the Cambridge city councilor back in December. Prisby testified at the hearing today and is not happy:
...[W]hat I find astounding is that the clerk magistrate made actual FINDINGS OF FACT (reserved exclusively for a jury) when he ruled in Galluccio's favor, stating that he believed that Galluccio had consumed some alcohol that night, but not enough to impair him.
That is, quite frankly, unbelievable and completely inappropriate. Our system is designed to prevent one man from making a determination behind closed doors as to guilt or innocence. ...
So look for Galluccio to continue his bid for a state senate seat despite incumbent Jarrett Barrios running again.

Perspicax reports that after he got on the train yesterday afternoon, it took 70 minutes to get from Forest Hills to Back Bay.
I wonder how long it would have taken to just walk?

Carpundit, who lives in the neighborhood, says:

He also suggests appropriate punishment for the guy, if he's an immigrant (he's described as "a native of Lebanon") and he's found guilty:
a two-year state prison sentence, followed by a referral to ICE for deportation processing. We don't need immigrants like him.
