We dread it when the media's satellite trucks come to town, for it usually means tragedy or conflict. In the case of the purported scandal we'll call plover-gate it is conflict. Civil war in Deluxe-bury?

Boston 2, Chicago 0; Doc Rivers To Be Traded? Cape League...
The Boston Bruins seized a 2-1 lead the Stanley Cup finals with a 2-0 shutout of the Chicago Black Hawks. The victory puts Boston just 2 wins away from raising Lord Stanley's cup another time.
People have souls, objects do not.
Considering this, it seems a little odd that Pope Francis blessed thousands of Harley-Davidsons and their riders celebrating the manufacturer's 110th anniversary.
It is important to bless vehicles. Just as it is important to bless cows, sheep, dogs, fish, ships, you name it, it gets blessed. And there is no problem blessing a man and a machine.
When America needed people to sail out on the uncharted seas, fight sea monsters, sit adrift for months at a time, risk shipwrecking, kill and eat each other, battle Micronesians, or perhaps even vanish in the Bermuda Triangle... yo, we got that. The whale is Earth's biggest creature... we hunt them, so well that you really have to look to see whales these days. Hurricanes and Nor'easters? We build our homes right in their path.
A foray into the appellate process in Superior Court is, by its very nature, an adversarial proposition. When people look to the judicial branch to seek relief, it is often characterized as “seeking clarification,” or “ironing out some wrinkles” related to a particular issue. The politicians and pundits can spin it any way they want. It’s a lawsuit, and when the town sues itself, it is rarely a good use of the peoples’ money.

At first I thought my problem with Gabriel Gomez was his attempts to be funny which usually crashed into snarkiness.
I had some initial interest in him since the Republicans in Massachusetts spoke against him and freely pointed out his flaws, stressed he was inexperienced, and harped on his not coming across as very intelligent.
Conservative talk radio spoke about him as if he were a moron.
A SPECIAL WEEKEND
The coming weekend, Father's Day weekend, has special memories for me. Last year, on Father's Day, hundreds of people gathered in front of Colombo's Restaurant on Main Street in Hyannis. They came to participate in a Funeral March à la New Orleans style. I was at the top of the Melody Tent knoll with a video camera when this multitude approached the Melody Tent where Dick Golden presided over a concert in Lou Colombo's honor.
As anyone that reads my blog already knows, I am passionate about education. It's important, not just for the kids, but for our society.
