Our resident scold, who normally spends his days complaining about our driving habits and kids on his lawn, is happy today because Boston has become world classier than New York: GE moved here, Berklee is bigger than whatever allegedly passes for music education in that sad, sorry city to our south and, oh, yeah, Yankees suck!

EPIC CLASH Between Howie Carr and Shiva Ayyadurai

For people who enjoy a good car wreck, skip to 2:00 in this video. Right-winger Shiva Ayyadurai, who says he invented e-mail and who is one of several Republicans looking to run against Elizabeth Warren next year, accuses Howie Carr - Howie Carr - of being a "Fake Trumper."
