Wu-Sox (508 #307)

posted by Mike on August 18th, 2018

508 is a show about Worcester. This week, Mike and Brendan talk about the logic of SimCity, “Holden Man Gets 5 Years for Worcester Sandwich Shop Robberies,” the lack of master thieves, the NM couple who left behind a $100 million stolen painting, the Isabella Stewart Gardner heist, how home ownership influences political behavior [PDF], how the demolition of Notre Dame des Canadiens is the Altamont of Worcester Catholicism, “Assumption College President Cesareo to Oversee Allegations of Sexual Misconduct at Seminary,” does the Worcester Catholic church have the cultural relevance of an Applebee’s? (to use Steve Siddle’s expression), the generations-long work of dealing with clergy sex abuse, the Wu-Sox, Worcester’s Greatest Needs (circa 1901), do we have more dignity attached to the mayor’s office?, do we have higher and more virile citizenship?
