Pumpkin-spice ivermectin

Relax, it's a joke. But apple-flavored ivermectin is real.

WBZ reports a drugstore in Hopkinton is using a Rte. 9 billboard to offer up only the freshest, choicest human-type ivermectin for those Massholes who don't believe in doctors and science and stuff - except you theoretically can't get human-style ivermectin without a prescription. The state Department of Public Health is investigating.

The MetroWest Daily News reports it wasn't so much their deshabille that got the pair in trouble so much as their responding to police inquiries about whether they were OK so much as the violent struggle that allegedly ensued when they declined to answer and started to run away. The police chief reassured the public that the dog was "a very good dog."

Hopkinton's only drugstore is suing CVS, alleging the national pharmacy giant is trying to muscle into the town by cutting off a key part of its business.

In a lawsuit filed this week in US District Court, Hopkinton Drug alleges the CVS wing that administers pharmacy benefits for many employers is refusing to do any more business with the store as part of an "unlawful civil conspiracy" with the CVS wing that runs retail outlets, in an attempt to break into the Hopkinton pharmacy market.

A sting operation! Richard DiBona tweets it's happening right now:

A guy walks back and forth in the crosswalk while a cop waits to bag people who don't stop.

A Hopkinton parent forwards the note from the superintendent. School dismissals delayed an hour, even though there is no evidence the alleged thief is dangerous, let alone anywhere near a school:

Today, on Tuesday, March 11th at about 11:30 a.m., the Hopkinton Police Department informed the community that they were searching for a suspect who had stolen a car and may have broken into a home. While the areas surrounding the schools were searched, all buildings were ordered locked and no one was allowed to enter or exit.

Rachel, Neil and Lillian - Don't click on the Lillian Rose link if you don't want to get really sad.

In the media-criticism angle, raspberries to bostonherald.com for running an entire story about the site without linking to it. Update: They've since added a link. Channel 4 linked to the site in its online story. So did Channel 5. Even the Globe (yes, the Globe) linked to the site. WBZ-AM has the link, although not clickable. Channel 7 did not link to the site, but what do you expect from them?

My standard newspaper-disclosure link.
