The Suffolk Journal reports that one of new President Norman Smith's first acts was to cancel those ads whose main purpose seemed to be to make everybody want to punch the person responsible for them.
Suffolk University, which currently has an ad campaign boasting how many of its law-school graduates are Massachusetts judges, is ending its commitment to the Rappaport Center for Law and Public Service, which trains law students for careers in public service.

But the Herald, Suffolk University and NECN are going to try.

In fact, director Wesley Savick says, the idea was to make audiences leave thinking that maybe the Tom and Ray Magliozzi really did write the play, which couples parodies of Broadway standards with original songs by Boston's Michael Wartofsky to tell a classic, if auto-themed, love story.
In an interview with Universal Hub, Savick said the use of cars to reflect identities, hopes and embarrassments, combined with the classic story of boy meets girl, boy loses girl, results in an "unlikely marriage between Broadway musicals and automotive advice." Characters include Rusty Fenders, a hapless middle-aged owner of a terminally ill '93 Kia, who falls in love with Miata C. LaChassis, who convinces him to go to the Emerald Garage to get help from the Wizard of Cahs - who proceeds to give them guidance in navigating through life, love, car repair and everything in between.
