Crowded 222 bus this morning

Oh, wait a second! There aren't supposed to be any typical crowded morning commutes anymore - six feet, anyone? Ryan rode the bus, which goes from East Weymouth to Quincy Center around 7 this morning and was less than pleased:

222 right now. Ridiculous with 30 min headways.

Desolate houses left over from the filming of the Patriot

Marc Hurwitz found this post-apocalyptic empty hellscape while wandering around what's left of the South Weymouth Naval Air Station yesterday - fortunately for him, rather than a village decimated by zombies, it turned out to be the recreation of a street in Watertown for that movie where Markie Mark single-handedly solved the Boston Marathon bombings.

First, let's note that the Weymouth school superintendent today issued a press release that a worker developed a fever after returning home from a trip abroad last week, even though the country "is not a country that currently has any travel restrictions around the Coronavirus," and will return to work once he or she is feeling better.

But also: Read more.

Easter display on Dec. 27 at CVS

Realist Rob reports his wife snapped this display at the CVS on Bridge Street in Weymouth today.

This is retail at its most pathetic state. Who wants candy to sit around their house for a quarter of a year?! WTF

Prevailing sentiment in progressive haunts is “2016, don’t let the door hit you on the way out.” Between a stressful election season, acts of terror, and the crisis in Syria, many of us will be glad to see the calendar page turn on Sunday night. Still, to every cloud there is a silver lining, and at least when it comes to tackling climate change in the US, Massachusetts was a bright spot amidst the clouds of 2016.

This is what remains of the second bombing location for the movie, currently taking place on the decommissioned Weymouth NAS. Weeks-old debris remains from pyrotechnics, and filming has shifted to the Watertown set (see rooftops in the distance on left). Interesting to watch some of the film making process unfold. The amount of resources put toward this seem inexhaustible.

The Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports it's looking for next of kin of three people whose bodies were stuffed into a Weymouth self-storage unit, along with nine other bodies, allegedly by an unlicensed Dorchester funeral director who now faces trial on 278 charges related to improper disposal of bodies and the theft of pre-funeral funds.

According to the DA's office, the three people whose remains have yet to be turned over to relatives for proper burial are:

By Stop Litter---Yes On 2 in 2014... - 9/20/14 - 7:20 pm

We need to stop litter and keep Massachusetts clean by spreading the word about the Yes on Question 2 campaign.

The Bottle Bill is the most effective recycling tool we have. Eighty percent of bottles covered by the Bottle Bill’s 5-cent deposit are recycled. Yes on Question 2 would add a bottle deposit to water, sports drinks, tea, juices, and other drinks that were not included in the original bill because they were not popular when the law was passed in 1982.

We need your vote on November 4 to update the Bottle Bill.

Shark?

Weymouth Police posted this photo of the water off Weymouth around noon today and report:

The Weymouth Harbormaster and Animal Control Officer responded and searched the area but did not observe anything. Photos and video were shown to experts who could not determine if it was in fact a shark however they could not rule it out. It is possible that it was an ocean sunfish mistaken for a shark which is common occurrence. Ocean sunfish are very large often swim near the surface because they feed mainly on jellyfish. Their protruding dorsal fins are sometimes mistaken for those of sharks. Ocean sunfish are docile and not a danger to swimmers.
