Keytar Bear as trend setter

Stevil ran across these fine furried musicians in the Public Garden yesterday.

Is there a Mrs. Keytar somewhere that popped these guys out? They were very good despite the somewhat ridiculous costumes. I wanted to read them a bedtime story. :-)

How can we ever trust the news on ACN again?

The Newsroom does its ripped-from-yesterday's-headlines version of the Marathon bombings, including the climactic manhunt in Waterton. You know, right next to Cambirdge and Earlington. Also, even New Yorkers should know the Marathon doesn't end at the Lenox Hotel.

Boston Police said tonight that Ryan "Duce" Morrissey has died.

Morrissey, 17, and Jamie Lawton, 19, were shot Wednesday night on Main Street. Police say they continue to investigate the shooting and are asking for help from the public to find the shooters.

What kind of bet do you think he lost?

Won't say what he's up to but hasn't moved in at least 20 mins.
