Boston - A $53.5-million publicly funded parking garage and bus way at Wonderland Station in Revere officially opened over the weekend, officials said..."The striking new Wonderland station entrance announces the special place that this area will soon become," he added. "This is a very exciting day for me as mayor of this proud city.”
And of course, the comments:
I mean, I'd be shocked if the Revere Board of Tourism didn't throw the rendering of the garage up with the first commenters quote on a huge Billboard on Route 1A right next to the 30 foot statue of the Virgin Mary trying to attract people to the Jewel of Parking garages on the Northshore.
This is just so Revere I can't stand it. Kellys Roast Beef, Old fat men tanning on the sidewalks, and genuine excitement about a new parking garage (that hardly looks like the artist rendering above)...Welcome to Revere Beach.
PS: Maybe building parking garages that some how cost $53 million dollars isn't the smartest thing to do when you're perpetually complaining about crushing debt, eh, MBTA?
"The women made little attempt to hide her identity, her face was exposed, she wore a single glove and her bare hand made contact with the counter."
I'll just state the obvious and say its not her face or her fingerprints that's going to give away her identity, you toss her photo up on the nightly news and you're going to be flooded with calls. Flooded. There's surely hundreds of young men that'll be calling in about the time they saw her at the local pub and how she's burned into their memories.
PS: Are we positive this was a robbery? Like is it still illegal if this is definitely one of the clerks top 3 fantasies?
Double PS: I love CNN...This woman only made away with $200! And it made international news. It's not like this is the modern day Bonnie and Clyde or anything. This broad might as well have just stolen the take a penny/leave a penny tray. She made the news for two reasons and two reasons only. Kudos CNN.
EUGENE, Ore. – Jeneba Tarmoh changed her mind after listening to her heart. Choosing inner peace over a shot at Olympic glory, the 22-year-old sprinter withdrew from a runoff for the final Olympic spot in the 100 meters, deciding to concede it rather than meet training partner Allyson Felix at the starting line to break a third-place tie...Tarmoh notified USA Track and Field early in the day of her intention to withdraw from the Monday night race. Her heart, she explained, wasn't into competing again. "Running in this (runoff) came down to how I felt internally. Would my heart be at peace running or would I not be at peace? If I was at peace, I would have run," Tarmoh told The Associated Press on Monday night. "My heart was not at peace with running."...On Sunday, Tarmoh said she felt "like I was kind of robbed."
Way to celebrate 40 years of Title IX though, huh? Few other moments in the past 40 years have captured the incredible drive, ambition, and competitive spirit in womens athletics like this has...oh wait...
Ummm....WHAT?!? You feel like you were robbed? By who? Because as far as I can tell the only person who is robbing you of this chance is yourself. Like, way to train and dedicate the larger part of your life towards this one goal and then quit because you're afraid of hurt feelings. Bravo. Glad you have inner peace now because it's not like you'll regret this decision for the rest of your life.
What a joke.
If wafting a strangers fart with two loaves of Ciabatta bread at your local Trader Joes isn't love at first sight, then I don't know what is.
I have a serious question about these things, do people just do them for comedy or has anyone actually met up based on a Craigslist missed connection...My thing is, do you really want to meet up with someone that answers anonymous missed connections on CL? Seems like at a minimum there'd be a screw or two loose there, no?
Then again maybe you're not so fast to judge others if you're the one posting missed connections on Craigslist hoping that you actually catch that one persons eye and are able to weed out the dozens of prostitutes, perverts/killers, and Nigerian spammers.
