State Sen. Bob Hedlund won election as mayor of Weymouth last night. Hedlund was one of the two sponsors of a bill to make Roadrunner the official Rock Song of the Commonwealth. The last time the song was up for the honor, its main sponsor, state Rep. Marty Walsh, got himself elected mayor, too, and the measure died.

The other sponsor of this year's bill, David Linsky, is from Natick, which doesn't have a mayor.

Anyone have an idea what these are for? I've seen a few of them in Hull.

This South Shore home, which has already been rebuilt by taxpayers many times and gets flooded each year, just got 180k more. Rather than moving out of the flood plain, we're on the hook to keep elevating and rebuilding.

Lynica Emanuello says she probably bought a bottle of Tito's Handmade Vodka every month for four years, but put a stop to that when she learned the "handmade" hooch was really mass produced in by what she calls "a highly-mechanized process that is devoid of human hands."

Naturally, she's seeking recompense - via a class-action lawsuit on behalf of every Massachusetts resident who's bought a bottle of Tito's in recent years, filed this week in US District Court in Boston.

MassDOT is looking at ways to increase capacity on Rte. 3 south of Boston. WBZ reports one way to pay for it: Use that newfangled "open tolling" system to create an express lane. And while they're at it, why not vary the tolls by time of day, so people who have to be in town in the morning could pay more for the privilege?

Nick Puleo is livetweeting his commute this morning on a ferry from Hingham. After leaving paint on the ice, the ferry got stuck and now a tug from New Jersey is trying to pull the boat out.

He adds:

Heard on the ferry: "I'd rather die on this boat than sit on the GD commuter rail"

Let me get this straight. So T Red Line service has resumed today, but only between Andrew and Alewife.. MBTA Alert states there is no Red Line service between Andrew and Braintree/Ashmont. No word of shuttle busses. Explain to me how this is acceptable. I need to work in Boston and live on the South Shore. The MBTA takes $ out of mtu check each month for me to utilize the train and subway. So I deserve to have service just like everyone between Alewife and Andrew. I feel if you can't run whole line then don't do this! I know I'm not alone on this one.

A federal appeals court says a Plymouth woman who had an illegal shipment of marijuana mistakenly delivered to her door can't collect damages from FedEx because she was unable to prove the strange men who later showed up at her door demanding the package got her address from the shipping company.

And besides, the court continued, after dismissing her invasion of privacy claim, a federal law deregulating airlines takes precedence over her common-law claims of infliction of emotional distress.
