Your condensed guide to today’s daily papers.
You can’t have it both ways: Residents of Boston are angry because the city has been towing their cars to clean the streets after they complained about how dirty the streets were. Lawmakers are angry that the city is only making $10 a tow when the rules are enforced, but private companies make about $100. [Herald]
