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:

The Quincy Department of Public Works implores you to throw them in the trash, not in the toilet, because even the "flushable" ones really aren't and the last thing you'd want at a time like this is the embarrassment of having to explain to a plumber why your pipes are clogged - or being the wipe that broke the camel's back and completely jammed up a nearby sewer main.

Boston Restaurant Talk reports that Kelly's, the Revere Beach roast-beef roadhouse, is once again looking to open an outlet in Natick (oldtimers might recall when you could buy a roast-beef sandwich before feeling all the fabric at Jordan's) and in Quincy, which they maybe shouldn't do because the North Shore has roast beef and the South Shore has bar pizza and those are two culinary streams you don't want to cross.

New Wollaston Train Station

This woman, who loves, loves, loves the new Wollaston station, what with its gleaming and clean maps and signs and floors and stuff, would probably die of happiness on the spot if a new Orange Line train came through, so we feel bad about mentioning that JFK/UMass, Andrew and Broadway are as much "real Boston" as all the stops with more than two colors on the maps.
