Boston Fire Department
The Globe reports.
Kevin McCrea and his wife went down to Suite in the Alley off Boylston last night for some dancing. Then the fire alarms started blaring. For 10 minutes. Firefighters arrived. And the whole time the DJ kept playing music and almost nobody left:

How would you caption this photo? OK, not really a contest, since there's no prize (but I assume it's still void where prohibited).
So the FBI is investigating medical-retirement practices in the Boston Fire Department and now some of the medical records involved in that investigation have disappeared, so the FBI has to launch a new investigation into that investigation.
But, come on:

And such a shame so many got sick on Memorial Day when they couldn't enjoy the holiday.
The Globe reports yet another Boston firefighter has run afoul of the law: This time for allegedly soliciting sex for a fee.
An officer disguised as a prostitute was standing at a public parking lot near Blue Hill Avenue and La Grange Place at about 10:50 p.m. Friday when Collin M. Herelle pulled up in his white Cadillac and offered the officer $29 for... Read more
