boston, you're so silly!

how many massholes does it take to unscrew a lite brite??

the take on the situation from yesterday, from the mayor, police, etc, is that while this was a harmless marketing campaign, let it be well documented that the boston emergency units, et al, responded quickly and abley to safely remove the items that were placed all across boston. their point being, that boston should not be embarassed by yesterdays events.
i have to heartily, heartily disagree. not only did it take the city of boston SIX hours to figure out what the hell was going on with these things...but they had been hanging up around boston for TWO weeks before anyone noticed. and then, when someone did finally notice, the city of boston flew into a panic the likes we've never seen. had it been real and actual terrorism, we'd all be dead by now.
and now they've arrested the two guys that hung them, as i'm sure, a token gesture...almost like, when someone plays a prank on the old crabby guy at the end of the block, and he decides to have them arrested because he's so goddamned embarrassed by it, that he has no idea what else to do, and shakes his wrinkly fist in a furious, 'someone should pay!' kind of gesture.

boston, if you know what's good for you (and from the four years i've lived here, it's been proven to me many times, that they absolutely do not)'ll leave this alone...let it go...shake your heads at the 'kids today' and continue your sulking about the patriots choking their chance at the superbowl this year.
