The RP History Month’s Goings on About Town

Turns out I’m not the only Deis grad thrilled to represent such a notorious institution.  The folks over at Universal Hub and in the Deis communities at LiveJournal.com joined me in a virtual wave.  Ever clever, the M.A.S. noted the irony of the home of the Judges producing such an infamous string of graduates.  Right on.

The RP History Month keeps the local love going by showcasing some of the recent happenings around Boston:

The T plans to post bus maps around the city to encourage more riders to take the bus.  Maps – now there’s an idea ahead of its time.  I’m so glad my increased T fare is funding the amazing R&D capacities of the MBTA.  Though, based on experience, I suggest that getting the buses to arrive on time also might go a lot further to increasing ridership.  Just a small suggestion from this urban planner/MBA/irate T passenger.  But yeah, don’t forget the maps.  Now we’ll all have something to look at while we wait.

Though the T’s not the only public agency around here breaking people’s spirits in a slow, grinding fashion.  A recent study reveals that GOP administrations drive Massholes to smoke.  So is it the Yankees that leads us to consume mass quantities of this:


Of course, we’re all just trying to take care of ourselves up here, especially facing the winter that will not end. Enrollment in MA’s new universal health care plan is beating projections.  Good news.  Our new pitcher Brendan Donnelly, on the other hand, is beaning batters.  Not so good.  As Donnelly admits, it’s nothing but “antics” and “bad habits” up here.  Anyone know if free psychotherapy comes with that health coverage?

Finally, this is why I wasn’t around to post yesterday.  Beauty and brains!  I’ve got it all!  (Actually, it was more like this.)

    Hey, let’s give the T some credit… wouldn’t it be nice to know where the bus goes? I’ve discovered all sorts of things looking at the bizarre maps the T puts up now on their website… like the fact that there are buses that go from my house to Dorchester! Who knew??? /sarcasm

    Yes… there’s no denying it; we’re all irate T riders. It’s obscene. And as much as I complained in New York about it being smelly/dirty/unpleasant/crowded… that turns out to be utopia compared to this backwater. And don’t get me started on the fact that the T isn’t even a 24 hour system. Argh. Maps. At this rate we may get free transfers between buses and subways in… oh, 25 years or so. 😉
