The timehas come, the walrus said, TO TALK OF MANY THINGS of shoes and ships and sealing wax of cabbages and kings by Sal Giarratani STOP AND SMELL THE STENCH The Boston Metro ran the above headline on June 19 over the Franklin Park Zoo "Corpse Flower," which just began emitting its noxious odor of rotting flesh. This flower is called a "Morticia" and ony blossoms once every seven to ten years. However, if you really like the smell, just take a ride on the MBTA any summer af- ternoon on anoverpacked streetcar. Why wait seven to ten years. THE ANDY HEALY BAND WAS GREAT The Irish Social Club down -in West Roxbury has been hopping lately. Last week the Andy Healy Band played before a packed audience at the Park Street dance hall. The Saturday night so- cials will continue through August 25 and will resume on September 2. The Andy Healy Band will be there on July 14. The Noel Henry Band shows up on July 21.

Mary Mahoney, club president says thanks to everyone for so strongly supporting the socials over the past few months and hopes to see things p:ck up in September for ever more great Irish music. DOTO HAS LOTS TO DO TO BEAT MICKEY Attorney Tiziano Doto is being backed by Teamsters Local 25 over in Charlestown for the post of Register of Deeds for Suffolk County. His opponent is the incum- bent and former City Coun- cilor Mickey Roache. As I have stated, I have been a friend of Mickey's most of my adult life, he is my candidate for this post in September. RAY FLYNN OPPOSES EASTIE CASINO On this issue, I was sur- prised to see former Mayor Ray Flynn come out so quickly in opposition to a casino at Suffolk Downs.

In the end, the truth is some- Remember Your Loved Ones The Post-Gazette accepts memorials throughout the year.

THEY ALL HAD A "GREAT EVENING WITH RON DELLA CHIESA" IN QUINCY Legendary radio guy and Quincy native Ron Della Chiesa spent an evening recently looking back on his half-century in broad- casting and growing up in Quincy at the Quincy His- torical Society's annual meeting at the Adams Acad- emy. He shared stories from his book, Radio My Way, which features interviews and stories about the many folks in the entertainment industry. Della Chiesa is an institution on the radio both on WGBH and at WPLM. He is the voice of the Boston Symphony and Boston Pops on public broadcasting and the host of his Sunday evening "Strictly Sinatra/ MusicAmerica" on Easy 99.1. A great time was had by all.

ONLY IN CAMRRIDGE Cambridge Mayor Henrietta Davis wants to one up N.Y. Mayor Mike Bloomberg. Mayor Bloomberg has out- lawed supersized sugary or soda drinks down in the Big Apple. Now Mayor Davis is thinking about getting the City Council to go along with her and ban all sugary drinks and sodas like Coke, Pepsi and the rest. Sounds like a lot of political bologna to me. Reagan once called ketchup a vegetable. Presi- dent George Bush the first talked about eating broccoli and now we are at war with soda pop. Do we have more pressing things to do in Cam- bridge besides worrying about the sugary drinks we are gulping down with the fatty food we sho,atdn't be eating? READING, RITING, RITMATIC AND STRIP SEARCHING? I heard this recently on the Michael Graham Show on 96.9. An elementary school administrator decided to strip search a ten-year-old boy in grade school because she suspected he had stolen another child's $20 bill. The school did not call the par- ent and get consent to do so. The mother found out when the boy came home upset. Apparently, the boy was taken to an office area and strip searched while a male school janitor stops by as a witness. When the search turned up nothing, the ad- ministrator apologized to the boy and allegedly sent him back to his classroom. When is it okay to strip search an elementary school pupil? NEVER! May I repeat, NEVER? This school administrator should be canned from her job just for being so stupid. You just can't strip search little kids at school. Using a janitor as a witness is equally stupid. Would a male administrator ever strip search a little girl? I think we know the answer to that. As I said when someone shows such stupidity, they shouldn't be allowed within a 1,000 feet of school. I wonder if the boy's mother already hired a good lawyer? She should. Leave the DELIVERY to Us!
