Doug Rodrigues, with a big-ass knife, in the kitchen at Clio.
"I'm kind of a live wire," Clio executive chef Doug Rodrigues told the Phoenix earlier this month. "I'm not consistent, and people can’t
really read me most of the time. As soon as you think I’m some hard-ass prick,
I’ll go soft on you."
Well, clarification: Rodrigues is no longer employed at Clio.
Earlier today, the
Phoenix posted a letter on our website from James Carnell, the
racially insensitive editor of the Boston Police Patrolmen's
Association (BPPA) newsletter, the Pax Centurion. As expected,
Carnell has no apologies for anyone who he offended, nor does he
respond to the numerous charges of corruption that this publication
and others have leveled at his union.
week after the Phoenix featured the Boston Police Patrolmen's
Association (BPPA) and its racist newsletter on our cover, the union
responded with a letter on its web site – not just to us, but to
the general “media fury” that's exploded since the release of
their May-June issue. It is not an apology letter.
Boston Phoenix readers already know MIKE GILL: he shot a fantastic labor-of-love documentary about beloved indie heroes PIEBALD, his music videos have been voted as Best-in-Boston in our annual readers' poll, and he's working on a documentary about legendary Boston impressario BILLY RUANE
20 MORE PHOTOS: Police Arrest over 140 #OccupyBoston Protesters
1. The media department of OccupyBoston provided us with a minute-long reel of video footage (below) evidently shot from within the Greenway as the police moved in to break up the encampment. We're presenting it as-is -- the provenance of the material is unclear to us, although we believe it to have been shot and edited by OccupyBoston volunteers.
As #OccupyBoston gets ready for its first post-showdown General Assembly, we're posting links to the best photos we've found from last night. Our photographer DEREK KOUYOUMJIAN was in the thick of it when the Boston Police moved in to clear the Occupants from Camp No. 2 this morning. We've now posted 20 of his photos here
We'll have more in the morning. If you want the full story, we'll point you to our Twitter feed, where we've been covering #OccupyBoston -- and the Boston Police crackdown that sent at least 100 to city jails early Tuesday morning -- in real time, from our cell phones. Many thanks to the countless Twitter followers who helped by supplying information from the ground, photos, videos, and reporting.
Hey Saturday readers. Much more Phoenix coverage from Shepard Fairey's "Supply and Demand" dance party at the ICA last night - as well as on his arrest - coming soon, but for now I posted a whole bunch of links (many to Phoenix articles) on my weekend blog, JumpTheTurnStyle.com. Check here for what I'm calling "Everything You Need To Know About Shepard Fairey's Boston Arrest (So Far)."
