Vanyaland reports the Citi Performing Arts Center, which runs the Wang and Shubert Theatres, is becoming the Boch Center, thanks to money from the car dealer, stepping up to replace the money from CitiBank, which gave up on supporting the arts in Boston when it gave up on Boston.

So naturally they'll vote for his pal Trump.

If you don't understand this, Boch adds, then you're obviously not single like he, well, isn't. Also: Being a rich-guy supporter of Trump gets you out of traffic tickets.

The week's Bochwhoring Index stands at 2.

Yesterday, of course, the Gals mentioned Boch Jr.'s celebrity roast and then, today, they used an on-air tiff between the roast host and some DJ we're relieved to see is still alive to play up the Norwood resident's name (in the headline, in a reference in the column, in an accompanying photo and, online, a clip from the roast - hmm, so should that make the Index a 6?).

Tai Irwin reads about Ernie Boch Jr.'s birthday party (you know, the one that involved shooting fireworks over Boston Harbor) and wonders if maybe, just maybe, he's a sincerely nice guy:

... Elliot is nowhere near as annoying without Barry at Jordans, the Andlemans can be ignored as long as you don't watch TV 38 (quite easily done), and Bernie and Phyl (and their less-attractive family) and Bob-o-pedic rule the roost. But none wants the love as much as Ernie. So love him, after all it takes far less effort than throwing the remote at the television set when (not if) he appears. ...

Did you know that one of Ernie's charities is selling boy shorts with "Come on down" emblazoned on them? There, never let it be said I'm not trying to cheer you up. As Ernie says:

Now you can "Come On Down" any time your lady wants with these 100% made-in-the USA boy shorts from American Apparel.

who's got short shorts?

Blogorelli, however, writes a fashion citation:

... Sadly, I am here to say that, like Vera Bradley bags, those thin cotton gaucho pants, "updated" fanny packs, day-glo fabrics, and tube tops...this look is not for everywoman. In fact, it's for almost no woman ... because the ladies who look good in these undies don't have to beg men to "come on" anywhere by wearing panties ((ugh, that word)) with a sexually explicit message on the crotch.
