BOSTON POST-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 5, 2010 Page15 Thinking Out Loud (Continued from Page 4) up like the college book I was required to read in my political science class en- titled "Thoughts of Chair- man Mao." The whole book was broke down by subject matter and was better than any biography I ever read on famous folks. One quote that stuck with me over all these years was his definition of the mental ill. As he said, "The only dif- ference between the men- tally ill and us is that they're only a little crazier than us." So simple and yet so pro- found. That's how Dr. Elvard Semrad lived his life both simple and profound. News Briefs (Continued from Page 1) former House Speaker Charlie Flaherty. The can- didate is 44 years old and calls himself a progressive in the Cambridge tradition ... Dan Hill, a Charlestown lawyer said back in Novem- ber that he would challenge Galluccio if he stood for re- election. Is he about to an- nounce too? Other candi- dates surely will jump into this race. Will a Charles- town candidate emerge? Might it be Danny Ryan who currently works for US Rep. Mike Capuano? Things could get very interesting here. At least it should help the local newspaper economy when it comes to campaign advertising. Before You Know It ... The South Boston Allied War Veterans Council held its first meeting on January 16 to begin firming up plans for the annual St. Patrick's Day/Evacuation Day Parade. Much has already been done to ensure the parade will be a great Southie event on Sunday, March 14. So far, 46 units have signed up to march and more requests are coming in daily. This year's Parade Chief Marshal is Tim Coady. Back in the day when he was in the Army, he worked on the Nike "Her- cules" Missile Defense Sys- tem out in Rehoboth and at the motor pool at the old Bos- ton Army Base Headline Told it All The January 20 Wall Street Journal headline said it all: "GOP Victory Upends Senate." Accompanying the page one story was a large photo of Brown supporters waving flags with one supporter holding up a large banner that read: "IT'S OUR TURN FOR A CHANGEIH" Inside on the editorial page was the lead editorial "BOSTON TEA PARTY" that began with a great quote from Thomas Jefferson who once stated," IT IS TO ME A NEW AND CON- SOLATORY PROOF THAT WHEREVER THE PEOPLE ARE WELL-INFORMED THEY CAN BE TRUSTED WITH THEIR OWN GOVERNMENT; THAT WHENEVER THINGS GET SO FAR WRONG AS TO ATTRACT THEIR NOTICE, THEY MAY BE RELIED ON TO SET THEM TO RIGHTS." Two hundred twenty-one years later the people have been proven right again Aroused by watching Demo- crats in Congress acting like hoodlums, Massachusetts voters said enough was enough. Bastal Stop! We're mad as hell and we're not going to take it anymorel Adrian, Adrian! Insert "Rocky" music here! None of this is Bush's Fault (Continued from Page 1) that Obama "inherited." But the TARP bailout, which Obama voted for, was initi- ated as a one-time emer- gency measure. It was not established as part of the year-to-year budget base- line. The deficit rose to over $1.35 trillion in 2009 be- cause of Obama's massive "stimulus" bill, which was sold as the only way to keep unemployment under 8 per- cent, which of course it did not do. A spiritual thriller by Dan Calabrese. Click the image learn more and to order a copy. Now Obama proposes to spend $3.8 trillion in 2010, with a deficit of $1.6 trillion. Why? Are we passing an- other $787 billion stimulus bill? Are we doing TARP all over again? George W. Bush did not establish this kind of spend- ing as permanent parts of the federal budget. Barack Obama did. If Obama was serious about spending discipline, he would have treated the one-time TARP emergency expenditure as just that -- a one-time thing. He would not have larded a $787 bil- lion pork barrel boondoggle onto the following year's bud- get. And he wouldn't have come back this year and pro- posed a budget even bigger. He would have put a stop to such spending and started to get control of all discretionary spending, then went to work reforming entitlements. He isn't doing any of this. Whatever he may have in- herited, he is making the choice to make it worse. Much, much worse. Someone needs to tell President Obama: If you think President Bush spent too much, then put a stop to it. But he doesn't want to stop. He wants to spend, even as he tells you he is taking deficits seriously. He is tak- ing nothing seriously, and he's simply hoping you'll keep believing that George W. Bush, safely retired to Crawford, Texas, is forcing him to spend all these trillions. Nothing that's happening today is Bush's responsibil- ity. It's all Obama's. Every penny of it.

Ed by they way is a lefty which isn't at all uncommon for first basemen. Angels Trade Matthews Gary Matthews was traded by the Angels to the NY Mets and agreed to pay $21.5 mil- lion part of the deal. The LA Angeles picked up right-handed reliever Brian Stokes in the deal. Mathews had a bad three years since signing a 5-year, $50 million contract. Last season, he was 4-50 -.250. Meanwhile, the LA Angels picked up Joel Pineiro for $16 million for 2 years. Last year, he was 15-12 with a 3.49 ERA for the St. Louis Cardinals, his best season since 2003 when he went 16-11 for the MaNners. Boston fans remem- ber him as a relief pitcher that simply didn't seem to fit into Boston's bullpen picture. Molina Resigns with S.F. Giants The Giants completed a one-year, $4.5 million deal to keep the catcher in the Bay area. Last season, Molina batted .265 with 20 homers and 80 RBIs. Bobby Bragan Passes at 92 Bobby Bragan who managed Braves Hall of Famers Hank Aaron, Eddie Matthews and Warren Spahn has died at 92 years old. Bragan spent seven seasons as a man- ager, Pittsburgh in 1956-57, Cleveland in 1958, Milwaukee 1963-65 and Atlanta in 1966, the first year the Braves played in Atlanta. He had an overall record of 443-478. Back" in 1978, he was "Super Sal" Giarratani when he played 1st base for the Fenwood Flyers. Today, he's still Sal but not that super anymore. DEADLINE STOPPER: BC, BU Advance into Beanpot Final Monday, February I, there seemed like there was something missing from the 58 m Beanpot. It wasn't Boston College, or Boston University! In game one BC had no problem knocking out Harvard, shutting out the Crimson 6-0. Six differ- ent Eagles-Ben Smith, Matt Price, Pat Mullane, Chris Kreider, Brian Gibbons, Carl Sneep, scored the six unan- swered goals. John Muse got the win in the nets stopping all 33 Harvard shots. Game two of these semifinals was a dandy, and upset minded Northeastern almost pulled it off.
