Channel 4 reports on two emergency exits at the Central Square station that were chained shut. The T promptly sent somebody down to open them and provided some explanation involving CharlieCards that I'm sure makes a lot of sense.
The Harvard Crimson reports:
The Harvard Coop called police yesterday after three undergraduates collecting information for a student-run textbook-shopping Web site refused to leave the bookstore. The two Cambridge police officers who arrived allowed the students to continue copying down book identification numbers, which they did for two and a half hours before leaving on their own terms.
The Cambridge Chronicle reports that Councilor Marjorie Decker wants the city to name a couple of intersections along Pearl Street after Matt Damon and Ben Affleck.
The Cambridge Chronicle reports Cambridge police are about to nail the alleged arch criminal:
... No charges have been brought against the 28-year-old Watertown sole man as of this week, but police said they aren't dragging their feet in the case. ...
The Cambridge Chronicle reports a Z Square worker was stabbed in the penis by robbers early in the morning of July 2, so he tied a tourniquet around it, then went back to work. For several hours.
The victim finally called an ambulance after he rode the T back to his home in East Boston.
Note to the Chronicle: Although it was a nice touch to note that police took photos of the poor guy's injuries for evidence, you fell down by failing to note what he used to "tie a knot" to stem the bleeding.
The Cambridge Chronicle interviews the guy in charge of moving those three Harvard houses down Mass. Ave. this weekend:
Talonvaki takes Gun-Hee on a ride 'neath the streets of Boston (and Cambridge):
Memo to clueless smokers: If you dispose of lit cigarettes in planters these days, there's a good chance you'll burn down Harvard Square. So just cut it out.
While digging through local newspapers this morning I came across an alarming article in the, "Cambridge Chronicle," that seemed familiar.
It was! It was originally published September 11th 2002!
I guess some people are more concerned with hitting the highway than fact checking.
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.
No, we're not talking about commuters coming out of the Davis T stop. It's time for the second annual Zombie March:
We are the undead and we are here to eat brains. Or at least march past your apartment at a painstakingly slow lurch. On Saturday, April 29, dozens of the undead will convene to march, lurch, breakdance and shuffle down Mass. Ave., all in the name of a good time. ...
