The Suffolk Journal reports the university is looking to increase the percentage of students it currently has room for in dorms from 25% or so and quotes honcho and former City Councilor and East Boston native John Nucci on how it might make sense to look outside of the incredibly expensive area around the school at places that are just a ten-minute subway ride away - in particular East Boston, South Boston and Charlestown.

Boy, it's going to be great when the spiffy new Orange Line cars arrive and you'll get to spend extra time enjoying them, thanks to the sort of signal problems the T is reporting at Community College.

I'm on an outbound Orange Line train that is just sitting at Community College, waiting for the T to remove the lifeless hulk of a dead train somewhere further up the line.

UPDATE: We sat at Community College for about eight minutes, then went into snail-emulation mode on the way towards Oak Grove.

David Bernstein writes that the interesting news in last night's results were not in the race for mayor - which surprised no one - but in the council races, which could mean two black women joining the council in January - possibly alongside incumbent minority councilors Ayanna Pressley and Michelle Wu (at large) and Andrea Campbell (Dorchester).

The Charlestown Patriot-Bridge surveys the populace about the impending arrival of the neighborhood's first Seattle-based coffeehouse. While some can't wait, others worry about the chainification of the neighborhood. Peer pressure is being applied:

Some of my friends made fun of me for liking Starbucks. The Town is changing though. We have a T-Mobile store here now and a Whole Foods. Things are changing and I say go with the flow.
