Welcome to "Meet the Mayor," a segment in which we interview local Foursquare Mayors in their natural habitats.
The BeehiveAudrey Evans
actually been to the Beehive before. What's it like?Man, I can't believe you haven't been here. It's been
here for three years. It's the who's who of the what's what of the South End,
and everywhere else.

So your mayorship is basically up for grabs?I took a new job this year, so I have less disposable
income than I used to. About two months ago, I stopped buying comics.
Watching Law & Order UK is like walking into a hole-in-the-wall restaurant that you heartily praise before realizing that it's part of a chain. But that doesn't undermine its quality (completely), right? Anyway, Law & Order UK is already in its 3rd season across the pond, and even though it started airing on BBC America only a few weeks ago, a review is a bit tardy, no? Here instead are a few reasons why the Brit show manages to be more successful (you know, in terms of content, not longevity, money earned, or other series spawned, like the one here) than the one we stuck with for 18 seasons (though seriously, cancellation? Fo' real NBC, girl still had a few more gos in her, at least).
As our city girds itself for the tsunami of book boosterism
that's about to sweep Copley Square this weekend (to refresh your
memory on just how incredible last year's Boston Book Fest was, check out our 2009 podcast archives), it seems like this is the perfect opportunity to wax introspective on one of the greatest novels of all time.
We regret to inform you of the loss of this week's Mad Men chatjam. We did everything we could to save it -- we even pretended to fly to North Carolina, but to no avail. But we will return next week, make no mistake. We're going to push ourselves, and it will be exhilarating. (Only two episodes left, folks!)
See you all next Monday.
Subcultures spawn defining rituals: fans of Insane Clown
Posse have the Gathering of the Juggalos; practitioners of radical
self-realization congregate at Burning Man; and for the national
journo-politico elite and its legion of camp followers there are the
publication of Bob Woodward's inside-the-Beltway, memo-and-tell, docudramas.
Step right up, folks, and get in on our live discussion of recent developments in the world of television! With the fall season premiering this week, we thought we'd try something a bit different - instead of limiting our discussion exclusively to Mad Men, we're opening it up to happenings on any show. Stop by and let us know your thoughts on the premiere of Boardwalk Empire, or last week's It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, or this week's debuts (including Lone Star, Running Wilde, S#*! My Dad Says, Hawaii Five-0, Detroit 1-8-7) and returns (such as Community, How I Met Your Mother, Glee, Modern Family, House, The Office, and 30 Rock.)
Or, we'll just talk about old episodes of The West Wing. We're easygoing.

With the Rays and Yankees slugging it out for the AL East and the Red Sox falling more and more distant in their rearview, Fenway Park has not been the hot spot it normally is as Fall descends on Boston, but yesterday was another matter; in the afternoon, over 5,000 immigrants were sworn in as US citizens; and last night, Fenway hosted the Boston film premiere of The Town, the highly anticipated crime thriller directed by native son Ben Affleck.
EL PASO, TEXAS - It's the West Texas city that Whole Foods
forgot, though the chain started up in Austin.
Trader Joe's also has snubbed this blue-collar, poverty-socked metropolis with
its majority Mexican-American population. Even All the Pretty Horses author
Cormac McCarthy, a long-time citizen, has gone up the road to the fashionable
environs of Santa Fe, New Mexico.
