…but our Pursuit of Mr. Brown’s vehicle today was the first car chase I’ve been involved in.

I went to South station to pick up Robert Stacy for 11:15 this morning. Boston being Boston there was no place to park for less than $25 bucks so I simply circled south station until Robert Stacy came out and we were off to the Brown headquarters in Needham.

As I make it a rule never to take the pike if it can be avoided so it took a few extra minutes to get there, as we exited we talked to a nice lady who just finished at the phone banks and who walk out but the candidate himself with his guys.

He said Hello and RSM got a shot of him with somebody but he had to leave for his press conference…

…so not knowing the location we jumped into my car and thus began a semi-high speed chase which included at least one disrespected red lights, several cars to dodge and weave around and finished with a three point turn in the middle of a two way Boston street next to the state house at just after 1 p.m.

Bottom line is Stacy made it to the conference and his report will be up shortly is now up, I meanwhile still unwilling to spring for the 20+ bucks for park spent the conference listening to Rush and circling the surrounding blocks passing and re-passing the graves of James Otis, Sam Adams, Paul Revere and John Hancock the Gould monument and the statue of Joseph Hooker (why Joe Hooker rates a statue is beyond me).

From there it was back to the overcrowded Brown campaign headquarters and then Mighty Subs for a late breakfast/lunch (The REAL reason why Robert Stacy came, must be a fan of this blog) and off to my house were he is sitting across from me typing up a storm.

For the next several days I will be Kato to his Green Hornet or much more accurately Rochester to his Jack Benny. It should be an interesting week.

Update: I didn’t even mention briefly meeting the American Glob briefly after the press conference. he reports on it here.
