I suppose I should be glad I haven't heard of any shootings so far. I hope its not a matter of time. I am a very tolerant fellow, but perhaps its time to get all Guliani-style draconian on the sketch artists who are up to no good there.

The last shooting put a stray bullet through the governor's window and resulted in dozens of blue light phones being installed in public parks almost overnight.

1. Sorry to be persnickety, but it is the Common. The Commons is where you eat lunch in college.

2. Cabot Street, Cabot Street you say? Anybody want to guess who the landlord is for buildings on Cabot Street? (Hint - Look In The Mirror). Too bad we own the building, but can't kick the tenants / scum out.

What's the deal with Cabot Street?

I genuinely do not know the story on Cabot Street. Google suggests you're talking about either a cinema in Beverly, or a side street near Ruggles. What's on Cabot Street?

Thanks man!

As long as I know I am annoying people with some of my comments I know that I have struck a nerve of truth in what I say. Nice potty fingers by the way. I'm sure your pet rat must be proud of you.

Sorry to be persnickety, but it is a pet cat. The rat just kind of lives in the basement.

Is this a completely random, non provoced attack? I guess so if it was robbery? We live in a scary world

A lot of times, the people involved know each other. Druggies often accuse each other of stealing drugs, money, etc.
