James Michael Shadow cast a long shadow this morning

Our own Swirlygrrl paused a moment this morning to consider the long shadow cast by the standing statue of James Michael Curley near Faneuil Hall.

As corrupt as they come. If you haven't read The Rascal King you are missing out on just how much of a bastard this guy was. Just for fun, read I'd Do It Again, which was Curley's autobiography. Has a certain similar self centered ring to a certain person in the dock in NYC right now.

Too bad Bill Weld wasn't in the US Attorney's Office circa 1930. Curley would have never been Governor.

Actually too bad Bill Weld isn't in the US Attorney's office now looking into the T.

A dilettante slacker. The only reason he was elected was because John Silber was anti choice.

Beatty's book is a good read.

I guess the reason why his statue is there is because Flynn identified with him without a lot of knowledge, just saw the poster in Doyle's - "Mayor of the Poor"

It has been up since at least 1982.
