Phone booth and Latin saying outside Shaw's in Hyde Park

First, there's the seemingly still working pay phone outside the Shaw's on Hyde Park Avenue. And then there's the page with the Latin on it, a phrase that literally means "A crow doesn't pluck out another crow's eye," which is reassuring, at least if one is a crow, but which is an old Roman saying that's equivalent to our "honor among thieves." The saying has been popping up in the southern reaches of the Athens of America for several years now.

He said he went across the street to alert his neighbor, who got out a flashlight and the two began looking around when they spotted another rat. Read more.

Arroyo, Farrell, Powell, Turchinetz

Arroyo, Farrell, Powell, Turchinetz.

At a candidate forum last night, two candidates for the District 5 (Roslindale, Mattapan, Hyde Park) city-council seat - Ricardo Arroyo and Mimi Turchinetz - repeatedly proclaimed themselves progressives who would go far beyond constituent services and help other progressives on the council tackle issues from systemic racism to the climate crisis.

Maria Esdale Farrell, who works as an education aide to current Councilor Tim McCarthy, said idealism is all well and good but that she would largely stick to McCarthy's current focus on bread-and-butter local issues, such as potholes and crime. Alkia Powell, who currently works in the Mayor's Office of Economic Development, agreed with Arroyo and Turchinetz - and Farrell - on many issues, but did not call herself a progressive. Read more.
