First of all lets quote Tom Baker as the 4th Doctor in the Face of Evil:

“The very powerful and the very stupid have one thing in common. Instead of altering their views to fit the facts, they alter the facts to fit their views…which can be very uncomfortable if you happen to be one of the facts that needs altering.”

This is going to mean a great amount of wealth transferred to the “right” people.

The Second thing is a very Sicilian thing: How stupid do you have to be to put stuff like this in and e-mail in particular or in writing in general? No Sicilian would EVER dream of anything like that. These guys may be “scientists” but they must not have a brain between them.

Remember what I’ve said before, nothing that you wouldn’t show to someone publicly should ever be in an e-mail. You have been warned!

And trouble at Romano’s too…

I mentioned the drug bust yesterday but it turns out that Romano’s 7 doors down is also having troubles:

Romano’s Market at 138 Harvard St. had never been robbed before this week, according to owner Mike Romano.

But police arrested a would-be robber on Thursday afternoon and another person tried and failed to rob the market on Wednesday, he said.

“This is the first time it’s ever happened,” he said. “We’ve had break-ins before, but we’ve never had anyone attempt to rob us or anything. It happened two days in a row and it kind of concerns me.”

If they are going after Mike that is a very bad move on their part, he is from a different generation and his son’s are not going to take kindly to it, particularly the one just back from Iraq and Gitmo. Then again the employees didn’t care for it either to wit:

A female cashier chased a would-be robber out of the store and across the Arthur DiTommaso Memorial Bridge before he outran her Thursday about 1:25 p.m., Romano said.

“She couldn’t catch him, he was too fast,” Romano said.

That would likely be Katey. The guy is very lucky that the Cops caught him and she didn’t.

All of this happening within a 72 hour period does not bode well for my neighborhood.
