With all the cuts and bruises he allegedly suffered after the women's room dropped ceiling he'd just climbed into collapsed. So Cameron Shenk is not expected to be arraigned on a variety of charges, including attempted murder, this morning, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports. He could be arraigned later either in East Boston Municipal Court or his hospital room at Mass. General.
The news doesn't take a break over the weekend. Here's some of what was going on, in case you missed it:
It was a banner day of crazy crime at Logan Airport on Saturday: Naked guy drops out of the ceiling in ladies room, races out to bite and choke senior citizen, police say. And then there was the alleged kidnapping. And Curt Schilling's kid with the toy hand grenade.
Jennifer Forman Orth, our go-to guru for invasive species, predicts:
With temps expected to be in the 60s today, we're probably going to see a big emergence of winter moths today/tonight.
And just in time for the emergence of zillions of sex-crazed male moths (the females all just laze about on trees, awaiting suitors), the state has posted its winter-moth survey for you to report the presence of these bugs.
Just in time for Thanksgiving, Traffic Hackers has gone live with both live data and predictions for when you should head out - if your plans include the turnpike, I-93 north of the city or Rte. 3 south of it.
The site uses real-time data from MassDOT and historical data to try to show you how the roads are doing - without a single helicopter - and when you might want to leave.
We’re aggregating the speeds on these highways and comparing them to normal to create a “Misery Index” to tell you if traffic is better or worse than normal. We’re also modeling the future. In general, our model looks at years of data, comparing, say, this Thursday to last Thursday and a similar Thursday in October and June. For Thanksgiving, we’re looking at a very specific travel pattern, not just the everyday back-and-forth to work. So we’re looking back at data from 2012 and 2013, and current traffic, to predict what you may see down the road.
