You'd call the police, right? But what if it's the police who are blocking you?

Union members followed the MWRA crew to their next job on Fenno Street in Revere, where a city police captain refused to allow the crew to do their work.

"Your plan is faulty and we're not going to allow you to work,” Revere Capt. James Guido told MWRA Chief Operating Officer Mike Hornbrook, who accompanied another worker today.

Today, it was Everett High School gettting the all-hands-on-deck media treatment.

Perhaps Cambridge Rindge and Latin administrators could explain what they're doing differently. According to Cambridge Police, back on 12/7:

State Police Dispatch Center received a call that there was a bomb at Cambridge Rindge and Latin and Somerville High. The school was evacuated and checked out and nothing was found. Students were out of class for only about 15 minutes.

The Outraged Liberal wonders how the editors of a paper called BostonNow decided to lead with the Omaha shooting rather than the fireball that incinerated an Everett rotary:

... Memo to staff: Everett is a working class community in the Boston area. Omaha is in Nebraska. Nebraska is not Massachusetts. ...

BostonNow editors did discuss the Everett story at their Wednesday story conference, at least.

QUICK: Which paper is from Boston?

I agree with Dan Kennedy: local media outlets did a great job, especially online, with their coverage of the rolled-over tanker truck (well, except for the Everett Independent and the Everett Advocate, which should take down their Web sites in shame).

Angela works at a newspaper in Everett, on the street where the tanker blew up. She posts photos her boss took and notes:

... All I can think of is I hope the gas company that employed the tanker driver has some really good insurance because I got three new ads this morning from lawyers addressed at the fire victims. I think that's a good indication that it's not going to be pretty. ...

People are talking about the fire on Everett Average Citizen:

Maybe Tom Menino was right about those LNG tankers after all.

The Web site for Britney Place, an Everett condo project, claims it is:

4 minutes by car to Boston's North End neighborhood of restaurants, cafes, shops

Some Assembly Required, who lives right near the project, begs to differ:

Some Everett high-school students learned yesterday what happens when you toss French fries into a busy street when seagulls are around: The seagulls swoop down to eat them, then get run over by a Masshole. Angela posts the grim photo:

... In total, four seagulls were hit, three of them obliterated by the car. The one surviving seagull wouldn't wait for wildlife services to get there. He ran across the street and was hit by another car. ...

Jennifer Anniston in Everett? It could happen. But Noah Wylie buying a house in Leominster? Puh-leeze. And that's from Jody of Big DumpTruck, who lives in and likes the place.

While many of us seem fascinated with the Fort Point Channel meth lab (Universal Hub's traffic is up significantly today, thanks to people doing Technorati and Google Blogsearch searches on variations of "Boston meth"), Michael wonders why news of a Sunday home invasion and rape in Everett is so hard to come by:
