Tom Menino is right to say that Turner Broadcasting bears
some culpability for the cost and stress of yesterday’s Mooninite-induced bomb
scare. But is that corporation really deserving of the fury that he’s
unleashing at them?
that when the city has screwed up in the past, Menino has frequently reacted
with misdirected vitriol.

Yes, it's a bad day to be a 'droid in Boston. But while the BPD sweeps up after a Mooninite invasion, our favorite home-grown robot-rock outfit are gearing up for a takeover.
Here's what we know about Peter "Zebbler" Berdovsky. He's 27 or 29 years old. He faces up to five years in prison for putting up a bunch of lite-brite Mooninites. As the government's scapegoat for yesterday's "bomb hoax" -- which played in every other media market in the country as, "Look how stupid those Boston people are" -- he's about to become a very public martyr for the viral-marketing industry.
Boston, 2007 = Grovers Mill, 1938.
For those of you not familiar with Aqua Teen Hunger Force, the Mooninites are a race of video-game aliens who attempt, albeit inefectually, to wreak mayhem on the world. (They are completely awesome, though, because Schooly D does their theme song.) The joke is that the Mooninites always fail to do any real harm.
