GUEST EDITORIAL NO MORE MR. NICE GUY MITT by Edward P. Shallow The irascible Leo Durocher said, I come to win. I never did say that you can't win. I said that if I was playing third base and my mother rounded third with the winning run, I'd trip her up. Nice guys finish last. I urge Mitt to aspire to Leo's ideals of the spirit to win. At all costs. There is an immediate need for Mitt to show anger when Obama lies about his very successful achieve- ments at Bain Capital. Throw a few punches Mitt you will be pleased at the results. It is interesting to note Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley, a Democrat, no supporter of Mitt Romney made the statement on Fox 25, July 5; "RomneyCare works in Massachusetts." It confirms Romney's conviction health care is an issue for the various states to solve. I am aware that Ohama will push treaties through Congress that will prohibit U.S. exportation of hand guns and small arms to other countries, (back door gun con- trol). In past articles I reported "Fast and Furious" was to be the bait against the Second Amendment. It is with a heavy heart I report the coup de grace the blow that will kill America's health care and devastate the taxpayers of the nation. ObamaCare raises taxes and adds 17 new taxes that will affect all Americans and will heavily impact the middle-class the most. The Wall Street Journal revealed that 75% will be paid for by families making under $120,000 -- so much for Obama's promise to not raise taxes on the middle-class. The unemployment figures are just in for this period. As of this writing 23 million Americans are unemployed (Continued on Page 13) Auctioneers JJManning to Conduct Accelerated Sale of 9.9A Charter Street. North End. Boston Jerome J. Manning & Co., Inc, d/b/a "JJManning Auctioneers" is a family-owned business that has successfully sold high end real estate at auction since 1976. Our niche in the real estate industry is in conducting "non-distress" auction sales of high value real estate on behalf of the ownership.

Our process is truly the best way to sell your property quickly and efficiently and with no contingencies. JJManning's current offering is the prop- erty located at 9 Charter Street, North End, Boston, Massachusetts (The San Giuseppe Society building) to be held on August 2, 2012 at 11:00 am.

No groups are being ignored in this process. Buyers and brokers will be able to tour the property at the scheduled previews.

The rain stopped and the sun came out. A large turnout as usual through this Quincy neighborhood.

This was Lynch's first march in the Squantum parade and he loved every moment of it.

Send letter to: Pamela Donnaruma, Editor, The Post-Gazette, P.O. Box 130135, Boston, MA 02113 This past Sunday, my friend Lisa Cappuccio catled me to let me know that actor Ernest Borgnine had passed away hours before at age 95. Borgnine has been out of the limelight for a while and I actually told her, I thought he was already dead. Then, we talked about his career as a great Hollywood actor who in 1956 won the Best Actor Oscar for his leading role in "Marty." I recall seeing that movie over at the Lancaster below North Station on Causeway Street. Borgnine became an actor late in life and is best known as playing a heavy in all kinds of westerns and gladiator movies. He looked like a tough guy and with his raspy voice got typecast as a bad guy. However, he also could come off as a good guy too. Eventually, he became typecast as a regular guy. He was the son of Italian of TV history when Italian roles seemed banned from television. "The Untouchables," which ran on TV during the same time period never had a gangster with an Italian name. Of course, it seemed silly to see Borgnine playing an Irish-American skip- per, huh? You always knew whether he was a gladiator, a passenger on a "Wagon Train" episode or an outlaw in that explosive 1969 "The Wild Bunch" movie that he had definite Italian roots. He always reminded me of an Italian uncle with his loveable roughness always making you root for him even when he played a bad guy. As a baby boomer back when Italians were barred from TV, it didn't matter whether he was a Roman centurion, an Irish guy in the U.S. Navy or fighting side by side with Lee Marvin, Telly Savalas and Jim Brown in "The Dirty Dozen," I knew him as an Italian- American actor and my pride showed when I saw him either on the big screen or in my living room on the TV set. He will be missed!
