JPKIII is in – Medford ups the ante – Trivia night! – GOP jobs plan

IT’S A SILLY PLACE: By now you must know that Joe Kennedy Cubed, the Great Red Hope, is officially running for Congress. You can watch his spiffy new announcement video or read all the terrible things people are writing about him. (Herald)

IT’S TRIVIA DAY! Tonight is the night for all fans of Mass. politics and bad humor: The first ever MassterList Trivia Challenge! And remember, extra points to the team that buys me the most drinks.

MEDFORD: The town of Medford was sick of Lawrence and other places getting all the credit for having absolutely insane local governments, so they felt the need to showcase their own dysfunction in the the pages of Your Town.
"The Medford City Council, which meets once a week, often becomes a forum for outbursts, petty squabbles, and resentment of old disagreements and the city’s longtime mayor. As legislative bodies go, the seven-member Medford council has long been among the most raucous in the region."

Awesome.
