You get a bigger crane - in this case, to right a crane that tipped over on the BU Bridge.
Inspectors swarmed the bridge today to make sure it was OK after the accident, which did not, at least, block traffic, at least, until the big crane arrived (and what would happen if it tipped over?). State Police are still investigating how the... Read more
Turns out PETA helped the Red Sox bottom line by buying one of those 100th-anniversary bricks. Only the crafty animal righters report their brick has a subliminal message in it that will convince Bostonians to stop eating lobsters:
Lead Our Bo Sox To Early Runs! Late Inning Blasts! Easy Routs! A Trophy In Our Name!
If you take the first letter of each word, you... Read more

Boston Police tweeted this afternoon:
Missing: Wally the Green Monster, If seen please call Boston Police.
About an hour later, police updated: Wally was back, safe and sound at Fenway. What at first sounded like a case of a dementia-suffering Wally, or perhaps a cruel prank by a Yankees fan, turned out to have a much simpler/stupider explanation: An employee who... Read more
UPDATE: An overhead wire became an underfoot wire on the Riverside line around 9:30 p.m., leading to busing, passengers being forced to evacuate trolleys to walk back to stations, etc.
Maybe the trains just couldn't bear all the weight of soccer fans heading to Fenway. Or the anguished ghosts of riders past were reaching up and grabbing the wheels of the trains. Whatever, Perry... Read more

Most journalism students don't walk right into their dream jobs, but I suspect if they did, most probably wouldn't find a reason to whine about it.

The Boston Fire Department reports fire flared up a manhole behind 359 Huntington Ave. this morning when some "penetrating spray" being used by a worker to loosen a bolt on an underground transformer hit a "small torch" and flashed over.

Joy of Sox reports on an effort to shame the shameless during the series against the Yankees:
Four games, on four networks. Bring your anti-Boston Sports Media signs to the ballpark! Or make them once you're inside. The media's ego has exploded, and they're making not only themselves but us look like morons. It's time to let them know that they don't represent Red... Read more
