In Jamaica Plain, livery drivers are parking in resident-only spots. In Hyde Park, cab drivers are running their businesses out of their homes. And in Allston/Brighton, cabbies are leaving their personal cars in parking lots, running their businesses 24/7 in residential areas.

City Councilors John Tobin (Jamaica Plain), Rob Consalvo (Hyde Park) and Mark Ciommo (Allston/Brighton) said the city needs to come up with regulations to keep residential areas from being overrun by businesses.

I went down to the Tedeschi's on the corner of Truman Parkway and Fairmount Avenue to get the Sunday paper and coffee. They have been kind enough for the last several years to ask the Globe driver for a paper with a South Section insert and set it aside for me so I can get the Milton news. This morning there was a whole crew of new faces who looked blankly at me when I asked for my paper, so I asked where Tariq (the manager) was. The new people said that he was no longer there and that the store was now owned and operated by the corporation.

On the way back from a Lank's run, we saw the Channel 7 news truck outside the Tedeschi's on Truman Highway. Probably something to do with Aquapocalypse, we thought. Checked the WHDH web site to find that the breaking news was the scandal of the employees there putting together bottles of water into improvised cases - at the demand of customers - and selling them at half the price they would have charged for the same number of individual bottles. OMG! Where is Hank Phillipi Ryan when you need her?

Score!: Kidlet finds Aquafina 6-pack hidden at Hyde Park Shaw's

Score! The kidlet finds a six-pack of Aquafina hidden behind a basket in the depleted water aisle at the Hyde Park Shaw's around 6:30 p.m. It was so bad people were resorting to seltzer. But nobody seemed to be going for the "nursery water" over in the baby-food aisle.

An ex-McDonald's

You don't tend to think of a McDonald's just disappearing, but that's what happened to the one on Hyde Park Avenue. Don't worry, though - it's being replaced by an all new McDonald's (whose franchisee also owns the Harvard Avenue McDonald's).

And while it's normally hard to feel nostalgic about some twisted plastic tubing, darnit, those tubes are the first play-place tubes the kidlet ever climbed in.

The drink's on him

Looks like Steve Murphy's got the Hyde Park bar-crowd vote sewn up. If nothing else, Murphy, a Boston city councilor unable to ever get elected to anything else, should do well in his base in Boston's southern tier.

The envelopes, sent to six Boston police stations, turned out to contain ground brown tea from tea bags, but it took the evacuation of a floor at District D-4 on Harrison Avenue and the arrival of the police bomb squad and the fire hazmat team to determine that, police say.

Mike Ball refused to take no for an answer when the Cranky Librarian refused to let him into the library's new Hyde Park history room:

... The librarian was firm that the room was closed, inaccessible, off limits. That made no sense and I stood my ground. Eyelash to eyelash, she blinked first. After repeating that it was closed, locked and inaccessible, she finally said that the head librarian might grant me access. ...
