Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino today gave Occupy Boston protesters a midnight deadline to leave their Dewey Square encampment.
If not, well take further action, he said.

(headline altered to fit)
Strong letter to follow.
Did he triple dog dare them?
I need graph paper to keep track of which cities have issued how many “deadlines”.
Oh No! Don’t hurt the little Occupiers - they are just doing what the unions and the dems are telling them to.
Further action entails a stern letter cc'ed to the Occupiers parents.
He will bring them milk but NO COOKIES!!
They are looking for their “Kent State” moment to bring more fire to the Occupy movement. When it comes, it will happen in a liberal city like Boston or LA.
I bet fewer Christmas shopper are coming into South Station, the free bathroom of Occupy Boston.
Just yesterday he was saying yeah we have the power to remove them but only if they cross the line. Suddenly the move has been made to do it. I wonder how many people have been SCREAMING at him to get them the hell out, esp. the business
people (store owners, etc.) As a caller to Howie mentioned yesterday First Night is coming up, lots of tourists coming into the city, and they get to see THIS crap? “I predict they’ll get rid of them by Christmas Eve”.
Well how about the anniversary of Lennon’s death. Imagine...
no Occupy. (They still might wind up showing up during the day with signs, etc. but they def. can’t camp out.) Don’t
worry Mumbles, you won’t lose too many votes with this action. The sheeple of the “schitty o’Borston” as “Mayor White” (imitated by Steve Sweeney) will still vote for you no matter what.
Ch 7 report
Menino: “We’re gonna ASK them to leave”
Ch 7: “And if they don’t?”
Menino: “We’re gonna take further action”
Protestors being interviewed: “How about the Mayor getting out of my pocket...I’m staying”
ACLU is appealing now.
Bos. Police handing out leaflets later this afternoon
So gather up your jackets move it to the exits
I hope you have found a friend
Closing time, every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end, yeah
Closing time, you don’t have to go home but you can’t...stay...here
One of my favorite songs.
This all reminds me of being in Philly when the new convention center was built. We had homeless camping out in the subway and el stations for years and no one cared. All of a sudden there’s a new convention center with thousands of visitors each year coming in and THEN Rendell gets rid of the homeless in the stations. It didn’t matter that regular tax payers had to deal with the smell, the danger, watching fights, etc., but lets all bow to the visitor and his money.
Now, city mayors all over are finally getting rid of the Occupiers - because they need to go? No. Because the Occupiers are messing with Christmas time revenue.
