Shiva and aide at Dedham Whole Foods

Candidate on the far right.

Maztoh brei in a box

If you celebrate Passover and live anywhere near Dedham, you probably know that the Dedham Stop & Shop has a pretty large Passover-food section - everything from kosher-for-Passover coconut milk to, of course, all sorts of matzoh (they've got shmurah matzoh, gluten-free matzoh and triangular matzoh with which to make pizza matzoh). But there is one item they have this year that is completely unnecessary, in fact, kind of an abomination: Matzoh brei in a box. Read more.

Line at Dedham Best Buy

The first people we could speak to in line at the Dedham Best Buy tonight only got there around 5 p.m. - to get an Xbox and to, as one of them said, meet some new people and enjoy the cold weather. They were the ones behind the guy scrunched up in the tent, who had no desire to speak to a reporter.

Latin phrase on pole in Dedham

Festive Daisy Razor spotted two of these Latin signs on Sprague Street in Dedham today, wonders why somebody would bother posting signs advising that "crows don't pluck out each other's eyes." You might remember the same basic signs, which are equivalent to our saying about "honor among thieves," showed up in Forest Hills last year.
