Line at Dedham Best Buy

The first people we could speak to in line at the Dedham Best Buy tonight only got there around 5 p.m. - to get an Xbox and to, as one of them said, meet some new people and enjoy the cold weather. They were the ones behind the guy scrunched up in the tent, who had no desire to speak to a reporter.

Dedham Sears going out of business

In what is possibly the least surprising store-closing news of the year, the Dedham Sears is shutting its doors forever as the chain continues to shrink into nothingness.

Alert Globe reader Gary C. noticed the ad (see below) in today's Globe, several months after Sears announced Massachusetts closings that did not include Dedham. Read more.

Latin phrase on pole in Dedham

Festive Daisy Razor spotted two of these Latin signs on Sprague Street in Dedham today, wonders why somebody would bother posting signs advising that "crows don't pluck out each other's eyes." You might remember the same basic signs, which are equivalent to our saying about "honor among thieves," showed up in Forest Hills last year.

Prevailing sentiment in progressive haunts is “2016, don’t let the door hit you on the way out.” Between a stressful election season, acts of terror, and the crisis in Syria, many of us will be glad to see the calendar page turn on Sunday night. Still, to every cloud there is a silver lining, and at least when it comes to tackling climate change in the US, Massachusetts was a bright spot amidst the clouds of 2016.
