Yes on 1.

This is the closest place that I can currently buy a bottle of wine (except during the hours on Sundays when the local Puritans force them to rope off the aisles). Somehow the streets aren't running with blood. Passing Question One isn't going to harm anyone except the packies who are running ads to stop anyone from taking away any of their wine business...

While you're at it, throw your vote to Kerry Healey. We don't need another Dukakis.

Teddy Celebrates 1st Annual Abu Ghraib Day

Teddy's all excited that it's been a year since his pals in the media exposed the goings-on at Abu Ghraib Prison:

Top officials in the Administration have endorsed interrogation methods that we've condemned in other countries, including binding prisoners in painful "stress" positions, threatening them with dogs, extended sleep deprivation, and simulated drownings.
To summarize:
Simulated drownings, bad.
Actual drownings, no big deal.

Bruce brings us the The Inside Dirt - Vol. 1 about the Big Dig:

As promised, here is the first installment in a series of posts detailing my personal observations from my years on the Big Dig [...] With every news story that comes out, the authorities seem to be getting closer and closer to the heart of the matter. Whether they actually figure it out is another story altogether. That is where yours truly comes in. Consider these posts a Public Service Announcement of sorts.

New York Post, NY - 22, 2005 -- Five members of the boys varsity hockey team at the elite Milton Academy in Massachusetts have been expelled for engaging in locker-room sex with a 15-year-old female student...

5 hockey players? What about the goalie?

(As if this sort of thing wasn't going on when certain people attended Milton Academy)
