It's Friday before a long holiday weekend, with a hurricane on the way, so I know you're not working -- except for those of you putting together the "news dump" press releases that should start hitting around 2:30 this afternoon.
So why not take a moment and ask me a question, in the comments to this post? I'll do my best to respond with my best facts, analysis, conjecture, opinion, prediction, or rumor.
In this week's issue of the Boston Phoenix -- in print tomorrow, online now -- I write about the surprising emergence of Worcester as an epicenter of political power in Massachusetts.
I can hear you snickering out there.
Worcester has never gotten much respect, but it might be time to readjust that thinking. Tim Murray, Jim McGovern, Guy Glodis and others could be wielding power in the state for years to come.
Over the course of the year I have occasionally remarked that it's typical of Massachusetts Democrats that, in a year where voters are clearly angry at insider Beacon Hill Democrats, the party is rallying around former party chairman Steve Grossman and former Deval Patrick campaign political director Suzanne Bump, for the open statewide offices of treasurer and auditor.
It's time to play Choose The Punchline!
The Guy Glodis campaign for state auditor has sent out a very nice mail piece with this very large banner headline:
"Guy Glodis Will Reign In Wasteful Spending"
Is the punchline:
A) I hope he's better at auditing math than auditing spelling.
B) Wasteful spending, like printing and mailing something with a huge misspelling?
