The MBTA shut power on the Orange Line in the area of Stony Brook around 4:05 p.m. after receiving word a shirtless, shoeless man had gotten onto the tracks and was ambling around. Transit Police arrived and managed to convince Shoeless Joe that was not the best of ideas, got him back up on the platform and radioed in that the power could go back on and service resume, around 4:20 p.m.

KStephen Snider took a photo of a hawk near the Stony Brook T stop yesterday morning. Nothing too unusual about that these days, but the hawk has black bands around its legs, attached to straps of the sort a hawk or falcon owner might have attached.
Parades from both ends of Jamaica Plain converged today, as they do every May, to march to the Southwest Corridor for the neighborhood's annual Wake Up the Earth festival in front of Stony Brook station, where residents converged for arts, music, progressive politics and all sorts of food and stuff to buy - as well as the usual ad-hoc slide for kids down one hillside.
