Right to Repair: An Idea Thats Time Has Come

Right to RepairWhy did the Massachusetts Legislature refuse to vote on the Right to Repair Bill?  Last year, it got tabled. In this time, with vehicle expenses being outragously high, and peoples pockets being almost hopelessly empty, isn't it time to give the consumer a break, encourage competition, and let people choose where they will get better service or better prices?

UPDATE

We're hearing rumors that the heavy equipment has stopped at the Hyannis trench site, and they are now digging by hand at one particular spot.

A 0930 AM update indicates that scanners may have found the boot of the missing man underground.

One ring if by land...

"Listen, my children, and you shall hear,

Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere,

On the eighteenth of April, in Seventy-five,

Hardly a man is now alive,

Who remembers that famous day and year."

- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

by Jonathan Mayo

Bruins Maul Canucks

Boston 8, Vancouver 1

The Boston Bruins made the Stanley Cup a 2-1 proposition as they whipped the Vancouver Canucks, 8-1.

Mark Recchi had 2 goals, and 11 others had either a goal or an assist. Tim Thomas had 40 saves.

The game was marred early, as Aaron Rome took a cheap shot at Nathan Horton that damn near ripped the man's head off his shoulders. Rome left his feet and shoulderblocked Horton, who was looking the other way after passing the puck. Horton was taken to the hospital.

Of bikers and blooms

When I was a kid, I was part of a gang. It was a biker gang at heart, but we accepted kids on Big Wheels, skateboards, roller skates and foot, both shod and bare. We had various "bases" through the years; under a tree, in a parking lot, at the cranberry bog. We would roll up to the base, looking for kids and bikes. If no one was around, we'd tear off, pop wheelies, and go pounding on doors to get the kids to come out.
