In this week's installment of Metro Moments with Menino, a reader from Davis Square says a cabbie refused him a ride home. When he called the hotline to report it, it was down. Menino responds with "thanks for complaining. We 'looked into it' and you're wrong, but if you're right, we're sorry" routine:
I want to thank you for alerting us and assure you that the 617-536-TAXI (8294) number does in fact work. I apologize if the number was not working the night of your incident, but the number was checked and it is working properly.
Also: the Mayor gracefully defends the arcane parking rules of Beacon St, where spaces go from metered public to free residential-only and rules aren't programmed into the meters, or marked on them. Scott from Waltham: good luck with that ticket, and beware that even if you get the ticket dismissed, you'll probably get still get stuck with an "administrative" fee.
