The time has come, the walrus said, TO TALK OF MANY THINGS of shoes and ships and sealing wax of cabbages and kings The price of gas keeps drop- ping at the pumps. Over by RosUndale Square at ALFA by Sal Giarratani getting towed? It sends a mixed message as to the importance of fire hydrants being accessible to fire apparatus during fires. By not towing more, the attitude demonsrated those errant drivers is that that this hydrant won't be needed any- time soon. Otherwise, fire hydrant ticketing is solely used as a revenue stream not a pub- lic safety issue. Blocking a fire hydrant should mean both a ticket and a tow. WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO COMMON SENSE? Gas, the price is down to $2.73 per gallon. A price to be thankful for, huh?

HYDRANT TICKETS MANY, BUT FEW ARE TOWED Nearly 13,000 vehicles have been ticketed for block- ing fire hydrants in the last 18 months, but only 400 were actually towed away by the city. What gives? How can folks get the message if their vehicles are only ticketed? Why aren't more vehicles A 54 grader in a Milford el- ementary school was sus- pended for two days for play- ing a game of shoot 'em up while waiting in the lunch line. He started pointing his finger like a gun making a bang-bang sound. He was sus- pended for these threatening make-believe actions. I think a two-day suspen- sion was a bit overkiU. There had to be a better way to teach the kid a lesson other than suspension.

He first came to Boston as a DJ for WRKO when it was a music station. He then worked at KISS 108 and finished up his career at WOOS. His music was the so=called Top 40 hits. He rocked and rolled for years and ended up playing many of those same Top 40 hits when they aged into Oldies. I met him once and had fun talking about the old days of rock and roll with him. He will be missed and I put him right up there with Arnie "Woo-Woo" Ginsberg as a Boston all-time legend. 83.50 FOR THURSDAY'S THANKSGMNG DAY GLOBE? What was John Henry thinking?. Charging $3.50 for a weekday Boston Globe that was three-quarters ads to begin with. This kind of thing is exactly why news- papers are becoming passe. He doesn't already have enough money that he needs to nickel and dime readers out of every last penny?. I didn't pay it, but got the Boston Herald instead at less than half the price and with just as much news to digest. HOW STUPID DO THEY THINK WE ARE! On Thanksgiving Day rather than hire substitute hosts, WRKO decided to give morning listeners an old Jeff Kuhner repeat and again at 3:00 pm, another Kuhner repeat. Conserva- tive talk radio listeners aren't completely dumb, are they?. Who wants an old radio show you've already heard once? This isn't exactly the same as watching NCIS or Law & Order repeats. Next holiday give us fresh stuff. I wonder how advertis- ers like airing commercials on repeats with only dumb and dummer listening to them. WWW.BOSTONPOSTGAZETTE.COM
