I'm Shipping Up To Boston LyricsArtist(Band):Dropkick Murphys
I'm a sailor peg

And I lost my legClimbing up the top sails,
I lost my leg!I'm shipping up to Boston (Way Oh)I'm shipping up to Boston (Way Oh)
I'm shipping up to Boston (Way Oh)I'm shipping off... to find my wooden leg
I'm a sailor pegAnd I lost my leg
Climbing up the top sails,I lost my leg!
I'm shipping up to Boston (Way Oh)
I'm shipping up to Boston (Way Oh)I'm shipping up to Boston (Way Oh)
I'm shipping off... to find my wooden leg

For the uninitiated out there, this song is from The Departed, and it is also the one that Papelbon has jigged to as of late. The lyrics don't seem to fit here, I know, but listen to the song- it ROCKS!!!
As do my Sox-
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, SOX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Please, DO NOT vote for Niki Tsongas!!!

*from an email I received from the Massachusetts Republican Party. The audio from Dan Rea's NightSide is especially telling and disturbing.*

JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT NIKI’S POSITION ON ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION COULD NOT BE MORE OUT OF TOUCH……..Boston, MA – Massachusetts Republican Chairman Peter G. Torkildsen today released the following statement regarding today’s report in The Boston Herald that Niki Tsongas supports “driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants and a ‘path to citizenship’ for illegal immigrants:”“First they were ‘American citizens,’ then ‘undocumented workers,’ then they were ‘family members.’ Now Niki Tsongas wants illegal immigrants to be granted driver’s licenses despite the fact they have broken American laws. Niki should be reminded that driver’s licenses are not only used to drive cars, they’re used to open bank accounts and to board airplanes. Massachusetts can’t risk representation that doesn’t respect national security and the rule of law.”NOTE: Torkildsen today sent the letter below, along with a copy of The 9/11 Commission Report, to the Tsongas for Congress Campaign Headquarters.Niki Says Illegal Immigrants Are American Citizens:Niki On In-State Tuition For Illegal Immigrants: “Yes, they should….You’re punishing American citizens, they came here unintentionally.” (5th District Congressional Debate, NECN, 10/05/07)• Click Here To Hear Audio(5th District Congressional Debate, NECN, 10/05/07)Niki Says Illegal Immigrants Are “Undocumented Workers” and “Family”:“Speaking about immigration this week with WBZ radio host Dan Rea, Democratic congressional hopeful Niki Tsongas reinforced her illegal-coddling platform.” (Dave Wedge, “Talk about an interesting choice ...,” The Boston Herald, 10/14/07)“During the segment, Tsongas defended using the term ‘undocumented workers’ to describe illegal immigrants. Pressed by Rea as to what she considers an illegal who doesn’t work, she responded: ‘family.’” (Dave Wedge, “Talk about an interesting choice ...,” The Boston Herald, 10/14/07)• Click Here To Hear Audio (“Nightside with Dan Rae,” WBZ-Radio, 10/11/07)Now, Niki Supports Driver’s Licenses For Illegal Immigrants:Tsongas “supports driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants and ‘path to citizenship’ for illegal immigrants.” (Laura Crimaldi, “5th District Candidates All Fired Up,” The Boston Herald, 10/14/07)
October 14, 2007 Ms. Niki Tsongas Tsongas For Congress Campaign26 Market StreetLowell, MA 01852DELIVERED BY HANDDear Ms. Tsongas:Like many Massachusetts residents, I read in The Boston Herald this morning that you support “driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants and a ‘path to citizenship’ for illegal immigrants.” On your website, however, you claim to “support legislation to implement the recommendations of the 9/11 commission to improve our port and border security.” ( In case you have not had a chance to read it, I have enclosed a copy of The 9/11 Commission Report, which clearly states the following in Recommendation #18:“Secure identification should begin in the United States. The federal government should set standards for the issuance of birth certificates and sources of identification, such as drivers licenses. Fraud in identification documents is no longer just a problem of theft. At many entry points to vulnerable facilities, including gates for boarding aircraft, sources of identification are the last opportunity to ensure that people are who they say they are and to check whether they are terrorists.” (The 9/11 Commission Report, p. 390)I urge you to immediately explain this glaring inconsistency to the voters of the 5th Congressional District. Do you support the implementation of the 9/11 recommendations, or do you support driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants? Sincerely, ~ S ~ Peter G. Torkildsen Chairman Massachusetts Republican Party

Congratulations, Police Chief Christine May!
See today's Enterprise for all of the details!

Sorry, Jack.....

but Cena really does SUCK!!!!

so there.

Go and See....

today's Enterprise, the front page and editorial page to be exact, to find out how Sgt. Christine May is potentially being screwed out of the position of chief of police by three selectman, most notably one Daniel Salvucci.
To make a long story short, Sgt. May has the highest civil service test score( a prerequisite for the job, I might add) and, IMHO, the experience to be chief, so damnit, Salvucci, vote her into the position! Stop playing these political insider games, and if you, Mr. Salvucci, do not think that you have what it takes to make this decision, then you sir, should step down, and let someone who can do the job right, do it!
I will sign any petition demanding recall legislation for Whitman, so that clods like Salvucci can be tossed out. I urge fellow Whitmanites to do the same.
