Do we really have City Councilors complaining about a raise for Brian Allen? Didn’t they give themselves an 84% pay raise for part time work a few years back when the budget was just as strained? I also seem to remember City Manager Mike O’Brien handing out pay raises for his top assistants at City Hall during the same belt tightening periods. Where was the outcry then? Where were the calls for fiscal prudence? (Maybe they should have hired Robert Z. Nemeth to write their campaign propaganda.) It seems as if the T&G and the City Council really have an axe to grind with money being spent on the school side of the city ledger.

The Internet has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. The erroneously cited royal “we” that Al Gore used when he said “We created the internet…” was a representation of the national “we”… all of the US taxpayers who funded the creation of the internet. If the internet wins the prize this year, will “we” also get an Oscar?

I’ve read that the Wal-Mart in Quinsigamond Village was supposed to open sometime in March, and I’ve even heard the date of March 17, 20X thrown around, but having driven by the area, it looks more like it’ll be April 20X at this point. I guess when we see the Wal-Mart signage go up, we’ll know the opening is right around the corner or maybe the City Councilors will have to meet to make sure the signage isn’t too large? Hmmmmm.

Dear Congressman McGovern, We have put up with this long enough!! It is time that you and your fellow Democrats understand that WE THE PEOPLE DO NOT WANT THIS MONSTROSITY OF A HEALTHCARE BILL. The TRUTH is that this Healthcare Bill is NOT about Healthcare. It is about creating a whole new structure in the United States of America. STOP IT and STOP IT NOW!!

The world was blessed with Granny D for one hundred years. Political activist until the day she died, she was truly a wonder. Born in New Hampshire (my home state), Granny D was the embodiment of NH’s values, including citizen participation in decision-making. In an amazing feat at the age of 89-90, she walked over 3,200 miles across the continental United States to advocate for campaign finance reform – a steady ten miles a day, with the support of family, friends, followers, and the kindness of strangers.

I’ve heard some sound bites about the “Coffee Party” but mostly I’ve assumed it was the exact opposite of the “Tea Party” folks. I’m a middle of the road politics kind of person and that doesn’t make me comfortable with Tea Baggers and I’m certainly not ready for a double latte espresso light on the cream political group. Either way, I’m thinking that too much caffeine can’t be good for you.

Due to the massive rain storms and floods over the past few days, the Worcester/Framingham line has a 40 MPH speed restriction on the tracks, resulting in delays across the entire line, in addition to the subway.
