Mike Mennonno walked by the revival tent on the Tremont Street side of the Common yesterday morning:
... "Do you know about Jesus Christ?" he called out to me.
"Je-whoosy-whatsy?" I said, not breaking my stride.
"Jesus Christ," he repeated. "Your personal lord and savior?"

Boston Police report a Dorchester teen never intended to buy the phone he'd agreed to from somebody he met through a Craigslist ad.
