POST-GAZETTE, NOVEMBER23, 2012 Page 7 Mrs. Murphy... As I See It Happy Thanks- giving to every- one! Thanks- }!  giving is one of this nation's biggest and celebrated holidays. It's a day to be reminded of the hardships the pilgrims had to endure to live in a new and free country ... Fortunately, East Boston escaped major dam- ages from Hurricane Sandy. Some people went without electricity for a while and some trees went down. Revere also received a mild punch from the storm, not too many power outages or damages were reported. Roads on Revere Beach Boulevard were packed with sand the day after and the ocean remained fierce but a beautiful sight to behold ... Biggest threat to our roads today is cyclists. More cyclists are involved in accidents than automobiles! I don't know why Mayor Menino pushed to turn Boston into a bicycle friendly city! One cyclist was hit by a bus last week and the bus driver didn't even know it until witnesses came forward to say they saw it! ... General David Petraeus, CIA Direc- tor and scapegoat for the Obama administration, is resigning. His resignation, he claims, comes after an affair with a woman became public. Probably everyone in Washington politics knew he was having one. Why now??? To keep him from testifying in the Benghazi, Libya slaying of four Ameri- cans by terrorists. Among those slain was the United States Ambassador to Libya and a United States Navy Seal. Talk is the ultra- liberal media has notes and memos on events that hap- pened in Benghazi in their possession and wouldn't release anything until the election was over. As far as all the people that voted for Obama go, let your con- science by your guide during the next four years of his socialist regime. Obama will make one of America's worst presidents, Jimmy Carter look like a winner to his crit- ics..,. The Farmer's Almanac reads we're in for a bad winter. Hope the Almanac is wrong! ... Kudos to the East Boston police. Thanks to good police work, East Bos- ton District 7 police made two arrests recently and confiscated 42 Ibs of heroin with a street value worth $5 million. The raid went down on Sumner Street. Taken into custody were two alleged drug dealers, one from Chelsea and the other from Connecticut. Congratu- lations to East Boston Police Captain Kelley McCormick ... Jimmy Roselli, formerly known as Jimmy Vegas, will not be leaving for Las Vegas because he will be the featured singer at Antonia's at the Beach in Revere. Jimmy sings songs from yesterday and today, so go see him[ ... Till next week!
