Saul Blum captured the sunset over Waltham this evening.
The Herald's Laurel Sweet scores a jailhouse interview with the alleged abusive murderer, who says he wants his parents to get custody of his daughter (they have lots of money) and says people should stop pestering the assistant DA who failed to get him jailed on an abuse rap.
