"It's a grubby, violent, dangerous world. But it's the only world they know. And they're the only friends Eddie has."
1973's The Friends of Eddie Coyle starring Robert Mitchum and a young Peter Boyle is the lost gem of Boston movies. Based on Rockland native and Boston-based federal prosecutor George V. Higgins's novel, this contemporary of Scorsese's Mean Streets features solid performances and a calculated plot involving Irish criminals and betrayal, making Eddie Coyle a fine precursor to 2006's Best Picture, The Departed.

It is believed that a time capsule was placed in the cornerstone, or somewhere in the building site, of the forner Brighton Town Hall in 1841.
The Brighton Town hall occupied the space that currently houses the Knights of Columbus Hall on Washington Street in Brighton Center. The original building was destroyed by a fire in the 1970's, but the new structure was built upon the existing foundation.
Over time it is believed thatthe time capsule was lost, and that it may be buried in the building structure even today!
Well, this was a week I'll long remember. I was in a crappy mood Monday night. I had a ton of work due on Tuesday. I had to give mid-term progress reports on all my students. I was behind on grading tests, which needed to be done if I was to give an honest assessment on the reports. But I also needed to get an expense check and a month worth of pay into the bank before the mortgage came due.
When you order a turkey sammich, and the deli man instead gives you a smoked turkey sammich, your first instinct might be to open that thing up and show him the exact difference between what you asked for and what he gave you. And by â€œshowâ€ I obviously mean mashing it all over his face.
Weâ€™re throwing a party at the Hyatt Regency Boston. The people there will be in their late twenties, through their thirties. We usually get a pretty cool crowd of people and I think having this kind of party will give everybody an alternative to the bedlam that takes over the bars around the city. Check out more here. Weâ€™ll have a dinner option, plus all the drinks, but I think its going to be a more relaxed scene. What do you think?
Human Rights for Massachusetts Initiative (HR4MASS) a coalition of groups interested in "MAKING HUMAN RIGHTS A FACT IN MASSACHUSETTS. " We work with the legislature to increase broad awareness and implementation of the whole gamut of human rights (civil, political, economic, cultural, and social), through education and possibly the establishment of an independent Commonwealth Human Rights Commission.â€ Dr. Laura Roskos, co-founder and acting director of the Massachusetts CEDAW Project and chair of the Advancing Human Rights Committee.

It was a fantastic moment when the Boston Scientology Ministers realized that they had just received this donation to continue their weekly distribution of The Way to Happiness - A Common Sense Guide to A Happier, More Successful Life Booklet. The Volunteer Ministers and local business owners distribute this booklet throughout the neighborhoods of Boston. It is just one of the many public services of the Ministry.
Are you looking for like-minded progressives to dance with in Boston? Want to cross-promote your events and campaigns in a tropic environment? Are you new to the area and looking for groups to get involved in? Are you psyched about building strong cross-issue coalitions while banishing those winter blues?
Of all the branches in all the trees in all of Dorchester, this hawk (red tail?) landed on the branch next to my window, prey in tow, for a lunch break.
It was a fascinating sight for which I am thankful to have witnessed. But if any Dorchester-area hawks read Universal Hub, a small request: I am happy to host you for lunch, just please clear your place. Staring at a red clump of leftover bird ruins my view (Iâ€™ll take graffiti any day!)
"RACE," a play based on the Studs Terkel book of the same name for is playing in Charlestown January 19 through February 3.
The Chicago Sun-Times says:
"Based on the national bestseller, RACE uncovers the true thoughts and emotions of ordinary Americans, both black and white, about this
country's most explosive issue. We see bus drivers, college students,civil rights workers, Klansmen, doctors, interracial couples and many
more struggling with their feelings on affirmative action, drugs,prejudice, and dashed hopes, revealing attitudes that few are willing
"Mandela was a proposed city that would be formed as a result of some districts seceding from Boston...including parts of Roxbury, Dorchester, and the South End....The name was inspired by Nelson and Winnie Mandela, popular South African anti-Apartheid activists. The proposal was defeated in 1986."
