Page 6 POST-GAZETTE, JUNE 20, 2014 Mrs. Murphy... As I See It Beware of the streets in Re- vere, and every- day mornings and Thursday )i    where. Potholes and protruding manhole covers (while streets are under repair) are giving drivers nightmares. On Washington Street, along the cemetery, the street is torn up and manholes are protruding with orange paint to warn drivers of potential danger. These hot spots need orange cones so cars can drive around them, not just paint ... He's one top cookie. I'm referring to Frank Goodwin, the almond cookie king. That's how ar- ticles in the Boston Globe have been describing Frank for the past few years. Frank's place of business is located in a ramshackle, three story building at the corner of Everett and Lamson Streets in East Bos- ton, where he makes his St. Emil/on silver-dollar-size fa- mous honey almond maca- roons. Frank not only makes the delightful cookies, but donates the proceeds to charities of the musical choir arts. Goodwin is a firm believer in Anglican musi- cal education and pays for two students to attend the St. Thomas Choir School in Manhattan besides giving to other musical organizations ... Boston was ranked the 13 th most traffic congested city out of 53 U.S. Metro- politan areas, according to a TomTom Traffic Index. Here's something to go by. The best weekly commutes take place on Friday morn- ings and Monday evenings, and the worst weekly com- mutes happen on Wednes- evenings ... It's no surprise that the Logan Airport Health study revealed a higher number of COPD suf- ferers among those living closer to Logan with a higher number of children with Asthma reported. Residents suspected the airport would bring on breathing problems long ago! What is the solu- tion going to be? ... At home, and abroad the President of the United States is a fail- ure! I said it from the begin- ning, he does not possess leadership qualities. From his idea of sharing the wealth, by making it easy for those who could work to get EBT cards. Giving them in- centives not to work. His big ears pop up when the race card is played, but doesn't have a clue about the real issues. What exactly is Barack Obama's agenda? Is he for us, or is he an enemy sympathizer? Every week a new story surfaces of his in- competency to run the coun- try! The killing of a U.S. dip- lomat, a businessman, and Navy SEALS in Benghazi, Libya when no U.S. help came; (disgraceful); the IRS scandal; the Veteran's healthcare scandal; and now the ultimate of stories releasing five dangerous Taliban generals from prison. Obama began his career as a community leader from the South Side of Chicago, and that's what he belongs doing. Small potatoes compared to the White House. "Swapping five Guantanamo Bay prisoners has left Americans speech- less. These five terrorists are believed to be dangerous, Taliban general warriors that Obama exchanged for an alleged U.S. traitor. U.S. Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl is accused by his brother soldiers of walking away from his unit willingly. We haven't heard Bergdahl's side of the story yet, "it bet- ter be good," or a court martial is awaiting him. His fellow comrades claim the manhunt for Bergdahl after he wandered off post cost the lives of at least six sol- diers trying to find him. This outrageous act by Obama is incomprehensible and he needs to be impeached. What is El Presidente trying to prove? There is a U.S. Ma- rine who served his country with honor sitting in a Mexi- can jail being abused, why hasn't the Obama adminis- tration gotten him out??? Americans are willing to trade five million illegal immigrants for one Ameri- can Marine. The dark cloud over the White House is get- ting darker with each bad decision the White House makes. Obama's reputation for running this country is inconceivably appalling! And, if all that isn't enough, Iraq has been invaded by Tall- ban terrorist and Isis, a new group of ruthless, blood thirsty nutbags trying to take over the Middle East! Expect the Muslim popula- tion to grow in the United States as Middle Easterners flee their home land ... Till next time! 2014 Low Number License Plate Lottery Calls for Statewide Participation for Plate "351" MassDOT Registrar of Motor Vehicles Celia J.
