On tonight’s “Beat the Press” edition of Greater Boston (7:00pm, Ch. 2), one segment will look at the Inspector General’s report on allegations regarding a contract for international tourism marketing, raised by an article I wrote a year ago. [Update: It turns out the segment will not air after all.]
A couple of commenters rightly pointed out that I failed to provide the url for the IG's report that I referenced earlier. My error: I did not have the url when I wrote the post, and forgot to go back and add it later.
I would also encourage those interested in the topic to read Jay Fitzgerald's series of articles on Tourism Massachusetts, some 10 or 12 of which ran in the Boston Herald between December 2006 and February 2007, when the IG's investigation began.
Pornography contributes to out-of-wedlock pregnancy, particularly among racial minorities. Liberals pursue a relentless attack on religion, culture, and the Constitution.

Update: Well, who looks smart and who looks stupid now? (That's a rhetorical question, no need to comment.
Mitt Romney's year-end campaign-finance report is in -- with two and a half hours to spare! -- and shows that he had contributed $35.3 million of his own dough as of Dec. 31, with almost all of it spent, along with the $54m in contributions he received over the course of the year. (He had just $2.4m left on hand.)
$35 million before the caucuses and primaries started.
