However, I heard the court has settled their dis- putes and they're expected to open in January of 2014 ... Revere City Councilor at- Large-Tony Zambuto was commissioned as elector at St. Anthony's Shrine on Arch Street in BostonT Congratu- lations Tony! ... Milford's re- cent approval by the Gaming Commission to apply for a li- cense doesn't mean a casino is going there! The commu- nity voted against it! What are people so afraid of??? Crime will find its way into the town with or without a casino! ... Diehards con- tinue to hold "No Casino" signs in East Boston, despite the fact East Boston people didn't care about the jobs a casino would create and voted it down. Looks like these hecklers have noth- ing better to do, "but kill the casino and kill time!" ... What's the big attraction at the Kowloon Restaurant??? Kowloon Restaurant on Route One is always packed. As huge as the restaurant and parking lot is, it's hard to find a parking space on Friday and Saturday evenings! ... Sparrows have taken over the Food Court at Square One Mall. People trying to eat inside the Food Court are Murphy... As I See It being bothered by sparrows flying and walking around. These little creatures are landing on food tables eating leftover food. Some idiots are even feeding them.

Getting back to Menino, voters be- lieved Menino was too sick to run Boston any longer and are surprised to learn that Menino is still willing to work .... Revere residents are excited and hoping that a casino deal in their city is struck. Unlike East Boston pessimists, Revere people want the jobs and amenities a casino can bring to their city ... Two life sentences plus five years for convicted crime boss Whitey Bulger is no relief for families that lost loved ones under the Bulger reign of terror. He should have been given the electric chair. Good riddance to bad rubbish! Deceased FBI agent Elliot Ness, also known as an "untouchable" must be turn- ing over in his grave to learn of the wide spread FBI corruption during the Bulger era. Besides the FBI, Boston Police and State Police cover-ups, Whitey had his Senate President brother Billy at his side ... Once upon a time European immi- grants came to this country to look for a better way of life by means of hard work. Today, under the liberal democrats agenda people come to this country to col- lect welfare and freebies ... It's that time of year where abuse by GREEDY PEOPLE that (CAN AFFORD TO BUY TURKEYS AND X-MAS TOYS), will take advantage of the generosity of others, and go to food pantries for FREE turkeys, and write to Santa for FREE toys for their kids!T! ...
