508 #22: Broken souls
The train schedule has changed; there will soon be a Worcester Green-Rainbow Party City Committee; the “connections exceeded” error on the City’s website is caused by turning off cookies in your browser; Brendan responds to Clive McFarlane’s column about strip club zoning; Mike invites you to add to How To Attend A City Council Meeting; Anthony Hmura has an amazing blog post about running into Cha-Cha at an ATM; Mike contrasts hunger strikes with Gandhian fasts; Mike connects his thoughts on the Telegram & Gazette with Bruce Sterling’s thoughts on broadcast TV.
Brendan: “Little cities like Worcester that are so homogenous, and so closeted, in its activities, that we are able to do things that are essentially illegal just a hair below the surface and nobody minds–this is the stripper factory. This is where all the broken souls come from. So for all the politicians that really think they’re on some sort of moral crusade, look at your peers . . . .”
