didn't expect more than 40 people to turn up at the
anniversary of Occupy Boston. Some formerly hyperactive participants
told me they were too frustrated with their comrades to attend, while
others declared online that the movement failed not just them but the
community. On top of that, it was butt ugly out and raining, plus I
heard that some of the group's recurring characters work weekends, or
couldn't make it in from out of town.
settling of Dewey Square was a big fat dysfunctional wedding, then
the current slog leading up to Occupy Boston's one-year anniversary
is a time to reflect on the shotgun marriage between this wide array
of Hub activists. Some tried to analyze the union on the honeymoon,
but a number of traumatic twists made that impossible.
Menino gets my vote, who is this TITO cat leaving
flyers on my wheelz? tah!
bhalpin For Boston City Council, voting Pressley, Arroyo, and Jackson. How could I

E_Flash Word, I don't think I believe in good politicians but VOTE
for Mayor Menino cause if anything... He's for the HOOD!
zackcerza Boston residents: Think Menino should have yet another term as
mayor? Don't tell me, just go vote.
WillieMoe I mean I would've voted for Flaherty/ Yoon, but I couldn't
find Yoon's name anywhere on the ballot?
Today’s Globe features a front page, above the fold story about Mayor Menino’s plans to make Boston more bike friendly (titled
“Pedal Pushing,” ugh. Did someone’s grandmother think up that headline?). It’s serendipitous
timing since, as I was biking to work today I: a) was nearly hit by some dude in a black
two-door of some sort, who sped past me to get to the um, red light.
