I hope Howie's going to have a part 2 -- there's lots more. Wasn't Dukakis responsible for the MWRA? I remember Howie's column at the time -- he predicted that, among other things -- they'd have to hire a couple of $300 a week typists, not because they needed the typing, but so that when the inevitable complaints about exorbitant cost started, they'd have someone to lay off!

Yes there's lots more. He used to say the "WRA" on their
license plates stood for "We Ride Around"

An oft-repeated Duke story from Howie: Dukakis has a couple
union heads over to his house and he offers them a beer.
"Sure," they reply, and Mr. Extravagant returns with
one 12 ounce bottle (or was it can?)...and 2 glasses.
Hey big spender!
