In another thread I recalled how one candidate was so sure
that Kerry was gonna win in ‘04 that his people let it be known that the following Sat., there would be a press conference to announce his candidacy for Kerry’s seat. I
thought it was Steve Lynch.
Howie just mentioned it (and said it would have taken
place at the IBEW hall); yup, was Steve Lynch. As I said in
the other post, the press conference was...cancelled...
Howie mentioned today that even the Globe has noticed MA is losing population (wonder how big a congressional delegation we'll have after the next census). Heard today on Fox 25, they're debating where to add tolls -- Zakim Bridge is one possibility (note: not whether -- where!). The famed MA health insurance initiative has won national notice! Here's the WSJ piece Howie mentioned: The New Big Dig.
I'd resort to that old quip, "Last one out, please turn out the lights," but given MA's historical sluggishness paying its bills and its dim financial future, I guess the utility companies will take care of that!
