ha—did anyone see the comment someone put on the Salem News page?
>>The raccoon story sounds like a cover up. I think it actually was one of our Beacon Hill elected officials.
by the way this took place at night; I work nights (don’t
all raccoons?) so I wasn’t around when it happened. And note that it was a mayo jar—as Howie said the other day, it’s
pronounced “may-naise”—at least that’s how he says it.
Here's another thought, though: The federal government is spending billions of dollars to keep General Motors and Chrysler in business. Why not expand the Massachusetts program so that welfare recipients nationwide get free cars--with the proviso that only GM and Chrysler models are eligible?
Everyone would benefit from such an arrangement (except taxpayers). No longer would anyone have to suffer the indignity of lacking a car because of inability to pay. The troubled car companies would have a guaranteed market. And the poor would have an incentive to lift themselves out of poverty, so that they would no longer have to drive inferior cars.
We could call the program Lemon Aid.
