Ruh roh. An editor at Mediate grabbed this screenshot of the Herald's website yesterday -- accidentally using the second-coming-of-bin-Laden terror banner when they presumably meant to use the fellating-the-advertisers banner.

Herald dutifully reported (to the delight of many of their readers, I might add), and as anyone who's walked down
Atlantic Avenue has likely noticed, there's a bit
of a vagrancy problem in Dewey Square. The scenario is more complicated than many

The more I get into Alex Zaitchik's excellent Glenn Beck expose, Common Nonsense, the more I've been thinking about Boston's pathetic second tier gasbag, Howie Carr. It must hurt to know that no matter how much ignorance and manufactured populism he vomits, he'll never have a fraction of the flag waving slobs behind him that nationally syndicated frauds like Beck enjoy on radio and television.
