I voted no solely because of 12. I've voted yes on every other mass transit system (including the monorail - what was it? 3 times? - but this one seems to mainly connect suburbs to other suburbs. I just don't think we'll get another chance at light rail after we pay for this one so it's important that it's useful.

Actually looks like R-74 has about another 10k in the lead vs where it was last night.

But yeah, I was worried that it supporters called it too soon but after today's drops I'm getting ready to call it myself.

10: yeah I guess it does. Too bad. There still are vaporizers though.

Yes, the feds can detain you. That is true. The question is if the FBI is going to go after someone for having an eight.

Free Lunch: I've been wondering that myself. If it's in your property it's not public intoxication and if they BYOP you're not selling. Only thing I can think of is running afoul of the no smoking indoor laws but I imagine those specify cigarettes.

No thanks needed. Just common courtesy and respect for others.

But you're welcome. I've been giddy about this all day.

"But in Boston's defense, that project undid a snarl of highways to open up a most unique city's divided heart, on arguably the most vital road corridor in the world, I-95"

Interesting point except that I-95 loops around Boston. The road in question is I-93 which connects Boston to Canada and is mainly vital to Bostonians who want to go to Vermont. Fact checking is your friend.

Will, your work here is ultimately what caused me to vote for Mallahan as I couldn't decide between the two. I wonder how many other votes you lost.

The cell phone thing didn't make a difference in 2008. Don't get excited over leaks of internal polling because we have no idea if that is really what the poll said and, for that matter, if this is one of 7 polls this week...

14 - the crosswalk light doesn't change at all though and the other cars are slowing down even before the pedestrian is visible.
