MASS EBT CARDHOLDERS SPENT $50 MILLION OUT OF STATE Bay State EBT cardholders spent nearly $50 million in welfare cash out of state in places like the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. Another sad statement of'abuse in income transfers. I thought EBT cards are for needed food and expenses and not to travel ori vacations? The abuse is madden- ing to most of the working crowd out there struggling and seeing their tax dollars wasted like this. Good country America if you are a loafer• Bad ff you decide to work for a living. Uncle Sam is still Uncle Sucker for far too many addicted to waiting for their govern- ment checks-in the "mailbox or direct deposit. BELLOTTI THE BEST A.G. The last good attomey general was Frank • Bellotti and like Tom Harshbargdr and Tom.Reilly after him, getting to the Corner Office isn't an easy task for an A.G. In 1990, Bellotti tried and failed to John Silber in the state primary. Harshbarger and Reilly met the same losing fate in. their attempts of moving tip in office. I met up with A.G. Martha Coakley at the start of the Bunker Hill Day Parade in Charlestown. I must say whenever I meet her one-on-one, she is very personable, quite likable. However, I have seen her on the campaign trail implode with attorney generalitis. It is difficult for the common- wealth's chief law enforcement person to become a likable poll on the stump• People still see them in their role as attorney general• Same thing happens to district attorneys who run for higher office. I would confess that I am not a Coakl.ey fan, but if she would loosen up a bit on the campain trail, she could be a strong primary foe of my choice Steve Grossman. • .Thinking Out Loud (Continued from Page 4) intended con'sequences of Garrity's Court order set the city back, ruined the lives of a whole generation of young Bostonians, split the city ra- cially and nearly destroyed the entire Boston public school system• Today, the Boston public school system is overwhelm- ingly non-white and any middle class presence is located in few public schools in o.ur city. If this was what Garrity had in mind in 1974, he'got what he wished• The City of Boston would have progressed much bet- ter without Morgan versus Hennigan 40 years ago. it takes courage to stand up for what you believe and to be ready for the name call- ing whi.ch surely follows. Linehan, LaMattina and Murphy were not "way out of line" and nor should they be ashamed. These two court cases separated by 20 years showed government both at its best and sadly at its worse. Yancey apparently doesn't get why raw nerves are never healed. HowEver, the liberal com- munity doesn't want to see the facts nor the result of makin˘ p,~r~nts feel impo- te.~::: :~:
