Boston Police identify addresses by their "patrol districts." In the case of the Lenox Street shootings, even though Lenox Street is in Roxbury, initial BPD reports placed it in the South End because it's part of the South End patrol district, which extends all the way to Melnea Cass Boulevard.

The South End News endorsed Susan Passoni in the District 2 race; Menino for Mayor; and Felix Arroyo, Patricia White, Matt O'Malley and Michael Flaherty in the At-Large race. The newspaper does not have a Web site. Here's the editorial:


Boston City Council endorsements

This year’s crop of candidates for Boston City Council is the strongest we’ve seen in years. Voters are better off for it. When we go to the polls next Tuesday, Nov. 8, we’ll have an opportunity to send new energy, ideas and passion to Boston’s much-maligned City Council.

One of the themes emerging from the At-Large race is that the Council is only as strong as its members make it. Although the Council’s powers technically reside just in its authority to approve the Mayor’s budget, the Council is a powerful bully pulpit from which to push policy ideas and endorse social movements.

Anybody who's ever lived in an apartment can surely sympathize with those poor infected researchers at BU:

... But Moore acknowledged that researchers in the lab had violated policies requiring them to work with tularemia inside an enclosed box, called a hood, that sends air through sophisticated filters.

So Boston University, which keeps telling us Orange Line riders how cute and cuddly its new mega-biolab in the South End will be, sailed through the city regulatory process without publicly disclosing that three BU researchers infected themselves with tularemia, which the CDC calls one of the most infectious pathogenic bacteria known.

As Steve Bailey asks in the Globe: They didn't think we would want to know?

Now, granted, BU says it didn't go public because tularemia can't be spread from person to person. But then it goes and adds that the "researchers had violated procedures intended to protect them from exposure."

Oh, well, no biggie. It's not like researchers at the new facility will be handling some of the most dangerous - and contagious - diseases known to man. Oh, wait, they will.
