Felt, scene of a scuffle-turned-double-stabbing over the weekend, was up before the Boston Licensing Board for an April 9 incident in which club goers continued their partying after hours in the parking lot across the street.

Dennis Quilty, lawyer for the club, said its owners have fired the manager on duty at the time for the lapse and that, in any event, they are now in the process of trying to sell the club.

The Boston Licensing Board decides tomorrow what to do about an April incident at Rumor, when a Boston police sergeant watched club bouncers punch somebody outside, then run across the roofs of parked cars in pursuit of a patron.

The club says the bouncers were reacting out of fear for their lives, because they'd been jumped - out of sight of police - by a pack of knife- and brass-knuckle-wielding troublemakers who have been going around downtown clubs, creating chaos.

It's just the latest incident for which the club has had to face the board in which accounts of what happened varied dramatically.

Because the Green Line continues to be plagued with problems. This morning, it's signal problems in the central downtown tunnel, so bad the T is advising people to take the Orange Line between Haymarket and Copley instead.

This follows last night's tree and derailment, which of course followed floods in the spring. Throw in annoying students with backpacks and we're only five plagues away from the taking of the firstborn male children.

OK, and some tourists and crazed Bostonians slurping down hot chowder in front of City Hall. On a day like this, when even the people in T-shirts were dying, we can only imagine what it was like to march around downtown Boston reclaiming the territory for His Majesty in heavy woolen uniforms.
