PAGE 14 POST-GAZE'R'E, APRIL 7, 2017 End Athletic Association Goes to the Celtics Over the past two weeks, NEAA has taken over 50 fam ily members to see two Celtics games at TD Garden. As part of being a member of the NEAA programs, we occasionally are able to offer tickets to various sporting events, and some cul- tural events as well. At the first game the kids got to see the Celtics survive a record setting 70 point outburst from Devin Booker[ In the second game on Friday, March 31st the Celtics survived a potential Nor'easter storm and the Orlando Magic with a 117-1i6 win. Everyone enjoyed themselves. 10-year-old Carl Blake at the Celtics game. The Whitney =Boys" Adam and Rob at the Celtics game. The Burgos family at the Celts game! News Briefs (Continued from Page i) They Must Think All of Us are Gummy Bears Recently, I received a piece of junk mail from an auto insurer with a good sense of postal humor. How many times do we get junk in our mailboxes that come with all kinds of crazy warnings on it. "IMPORTANT: Please open by addressee only," "Postmaster, do not fold," etc. I must say it gets ridiculous at times. However, the other day in the upper left hand comer of the envelope was printed IMPORTANT inside a red box followed by =Do not deliver to wrong addressee. Do not bend, fold, spindle or mutilate. Do not lock your keys in your car. Do not wear white socks with black shoes/ I thought the last DO NOT actually made great sense. One should never wear white socks with black shoes even if everyone around is. Stand your ground for the proper color coordination[ They Did What with General Lee? President Trump has hung up President Andrew Jackson's portrait in the Oval Office, which probably means he won't be going away any time soon from the $20 bill. You think? Meanwhile, the politically correct crowd is happy Louisiana has taken down another statue of General Robert E. Lee as the loony left continues trying to re-write U.S. History. I still laugh as I read President Kennedy's Profiles in Courage book. In it, he calls 19th century U.S. Senator John C. Calhoun one of those courageous American leaders we need to remember. However, today the politically correct want to take Calhoun's name off buildings and tear down his statues, too. Like Lee, Calhoun is a big bad boogeyman today. But you just can't erase folks who lived from history, can you? Sounds like the old Soviet Union to me. Warren 1 m/ng iA Both "18"And "207 It seems quite obvious that U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren is not running for president in 2020. You need look no further than the great newspaper photo showing her speaking at a podium reading, =Resist ... the Hostile Takeover. She is like a runaway freight train roaring down the Amtrak rails. However, she does have one Massachusetts stop to make called the 2018 Re-election Bid. After that, it is all aboard to the Oval Office or so she thinks. I wish we had a real alternative to her, but the state GOP is so bad, the two top names being mentioned are Gabriel Gomez or Curt Schilling. Neither of them stands a chance. We should be ashamed of ourselves for having her and the other loser Markey in the Senate for us. I can always hope for a miracle, but even miracles have to be based on reality when it comes to our state politics. Fearless Girl Not Leaving Wall Street? It appears the Fearless Girl statue will not be moving this month. The bronze statue looking defiantly at the Wall Street Bull in Manhattan has been approved to remain until at least next February thanks to New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. The statue was installed in early March by the investment unit of Boston- based State Street Corp. The sculpture by artist Kristen Visbal has gone viral. It was placed within eyesight of the Charging Bull on the eve of International Women's Day and has turned into a publicity coup for State Street. The Bull's sculptor Arturo Di Modica is not pleased, calling the girl an "advertising trick." Now a group of women are petitioning to make the statue permanent. I donl blame Arturo being [blanked] over this turn of events. His Bull was a positive statement about Wall Street and America's strength and now it has been turned into some negative buil-[blank] statement. Maybe it is time for the Charging Bull to ride the range for a new site because politics has now demeaned the message that Di Modica meant to deliver with his artwork. The Bull can stand alone, can Defiant Girl do likewise?
