A tutorial.

Growing up in Boston, the MBTA Green Line was a lifeline to many activities in the city. My favorite green line station is KENMORE or Kenmore Square - home of Fenway Park and the Boston Red Sox.

Crushed windshield in Kenmore Square

This is Leanne Winters's windshield this morning - after some ice/snow plunged into it. She reports the car was parked in Kenmore Square at the time, unoccupied, so nobody hurt.

Buses in a row in Brighton

KWAPT shows us the non-moving bus traffic on Washington Street in Brighton, where a bus and a cab may have tried to occupy the same space at the same time. Traffic elsewhere is marginally better, except possibly in Kenmore Square, where the stop lights have taken the night off.

Atlantic Avenue by Summer is also a morass of non-movingness, as Cybah noticed out his office window:

The Daily Free Press reports the Hotel Commonwealth in Kenmore Square has re-done one of its suits in homage to BU:

It includes a giant graphic mural of Rhett … a photo montage of archival Boston University news clippings and a ‘Wall of Fame’ headboard. The school gave priceless guidance on tailoring the room to appeal to Boston University alumni, students, faculty and parents.

An arbitrator recently ruled that an MBTA bus driver kept telling such dramatically different stories about how her bus came to hit a BTD supervisor and several parked cars in Kenmore Square that the T was within its rights to fire her.

The T fired Lataria Milton not long after the Aug. 9, 2012 incident, in which Milton's bus hit the supervisor and the cars after, police said at the time, the supervisor had told Milton to move it because it was blocking a turn lane in the busy square.

Derailed trolley

The first car of an outbound Riverside trolley derailed shortly after 12:30 p.m., hitting a tunnel wall.

Boston EMS reports ten people injured.

Three people with injuries were able to walk out of the tunnel near Fenway station; a third was put on a backboard to be carried out by firefighters. The rest were put on the rear trolley, which was disengaged from the front car and backed up to Kenmore station.

As of 8:20 a.m.: A Red Line train flatlined at Ashmont around 6:20. An Orange Line train gave up the ghost in Malden around 7. Another Red Line train began pining for the fjords somewhere on the Braintree Line around 7:20. A Green Line trolley met St. Peter at Harvard Avenue around 7:50. Another Green Line trolley put both feet in the grave around 8 at Government Center.

Only the last one still resulting in delays, the T reports. Or as Chris Bentson explains at Kenmore:

Taking a fully packed D line train out of service at Kenmore? Told to board train on other tracks- which is also packed!

Boston Police report that officers responding to a report of a large fight on the fourth floor of the Hotel Buckminster in Kenmore Square late Friday arrested a Roxbury man packing a loaded gun and a Dorchester man carrying a large kitchen knife nowhere near a kitchen.

It's the latest spot of trouble for the Beacon Street hotel, whose officials promised the Boston Licensing Board last September they were cleaning up their reputation as a place for miscreants, often underage, to book rooms, then hold loud parties.
