The Week That Was
Chronicling the past week via quick links and pithy commentary (we survived launching the new site edition).
Remember, prisoners don’t look kindly upon kidnappers: Clark Rockefeller proves kidnapping is easy when you lie about everything and have a yacht. (Or not. Seriously, do we know if this guy is even real?)
Manny being traded: At first, we felt nothing. Then we thought he wasn’t going. But once Boston.com’s servers came back up, we learned Ramirez had become a Dodger. We’re still not quite sure what to think.
And perhaps even more devastating than the Manny deal: John Kerry spokesman David Wade goes to the Obama camp to aide a running mate to be named later.
Boston needs mimes: Keohane makes the case.
We got your widgets: A local company makes the iPhone more fun.
Channel 7 goes HD: Just in time for the Manny trade and a spate of kidnappings.
The Sal-Cognos flow chart: This isn’t good.
Aww, a cute bunny! It’s an adorable edition of Townie Town Hall.
It’s the lamest holiday since Groundhog Day: We question Gov. Deval Patrick’s reasoning for this sales tax holiday.
Further developments in the case against Julie Donaldson’s boyfriend: We break them down.
Tom Finneran’s new gig: His ratings will probably be higher as a State House tour guide than as a radio host.
And you think your elected officials were mad about missing last call? The Hill and the Hall works overtime to get you the end-of-session gossip.
That’s all for this week. If you need us, we’ll be making a ruckus outside Tom Menino’s office. Quietly.
