Police officers patrolling South Boston tonight were urged to be on the lookout for a white trolley party bus, careening through the streets of the neighborhood, its passengers throwing eggs at pedestrians and yelling at them.

NorthEndWaterfront.com reports on an altercation last week.
NorthEndWaterfront.com holds its nose while showing us the sordid conditions on Cooper Street:
Early this morning, I observed a rat eating something and as I approached the rat, saw that he was eating a roasted chicken disposed of in front of 19 Cooper Street. I scared the rat away and went home and got some rubber gloves and put the chicken back in it's plastic container. As you can see from the photo, I put the chicken back into it's plastic container. As I was doing so, several young people exited from 19 Cooper Street and looked at me as if I was crazy because of what I was doing, they shrugged their shoulders, looked down at me while I was bent over attempting to mitigate this disgusting sanitary situation and walked away.
A concerned citizen complains:
Can someone PLEASE do something about all the unleashed dogs in the Arboretum? I should be able to take my kids there without being accosted multiple times by dogs bigger than them running full bore at them. Nobody to enforce?

Cat reports on an eventful ride on the Orange Line last night involving a guy who couldn't stop his singing and phone yawping and another guy who finally had enough:
at that point another guy suddenly shouted; "enough!! enough! stop it! no more barbara or whatever her name is. no more singing!! there are other people in this train. enough!" now we suddenly had a screaming person on either side of us, and i wasnt sure anymore which one was more crazy. the singing guy sort of ignored the angry guy, and just continued his loud phone conversation with the person who stepped into the train somewhere else. the angry guy did not like that, and while we were approaching our final stop, he ostentatiously (this word sounds better in dutch) took out his phone.... if possible, he was speaking even more loudly than the singing guy, reporting the above...
