WGBH says its hiring the former WTKK talkers to talk away between noon and and 2 p.m. on weekdays on its "Boston Public Radio" show. The move frees up Callie Crossley and Emily Rooney, who currently hold down the microphones then, to do other things, although the station says they'll continue to get some words in edgewise on the show. 'GBH adds that Edgar B. Herwick III will continue to contribute to the show after the changeover on Feb. 25.
Michael Prager provides an example.
Anne reports on a Braude sighting in Central Square yesterday:
Walking around Central Square this morning, saw Jim Braude illegally cross Mass Ave and hold up several cars that had the right of way. What was worse was that he was limping, causing him to walk even more slowly than usual, so a couple of cars didn't make the light thanks to him. ...
The Herald reports on Big Mouth Jim Braude's day in court; Braude acknowledged driving the wrong way on Morrissey Boulevard but said his ticket should be dismissed because a state trooper mailed him the ticket rather than handing it to him. The trooper testified he was more concerned at that point about protecting the life of the British prime minister - at whose car Braude seemed to be aiming.
How many Massholes can truthfully state they almost caused an international incident - and almost got taken out by a Secret Service sniper protecting the life of the British prime minister? Not content to merely be living the dream, Braude is, of course, contesting the ticket he got.
