Mitt up in Fla. – Superbowl wagers – Black boxes know everything – Suspended Lawrence worker still being paid

SMOLDERING RUINS: Everything you ever wanted to know about motor vehicle black boxes like the one pulled from the smoking wreck of Tim Murray’s car(eer). (T&G)

THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF LAWRENCE: A Lawrence planning department employee, and former State House aide to mayor Willie Lantigua, was suspended in August, but that didn’t stop him from getting paid this whole time. Must be some kind of crazy Office Space mix up, but only if the stapler guy was a repeat drunk driver. (Eagle Trib.)

ONE DOLLAR, BOB: Michael Bloomberg goes and rubs our noses in all sorts of finery and culture with what I think most of us can objectively agree is a way better Superbowl wager. When did these things become Showcase Showdown-style vacation packages?
