Tribe PR consultant on Hill fund raising payrolls – Webster, MA: Land of the Lost – Fare evasion campaign – Hobo train!

CASINOS NEWS: A Beacon Hill fund raiser working for the Wampanoag tribe? Sounds about right. (Herald) And Treasurer Grossman announced his pick for the commission yesterday. (AP)

HE’LL HUNT YOU TO THE ENDS OF TH EARTH: Don’t like paying your T fare? How about a FIFTEEN DOLLAR FINE? How’s that grab you? And that’s 15 American dollars, too. And that’s not all. You remember what Rich Davey does to fare evaders. And that was when he was just General Manager. He’s Secretary now, so he’ll probably just full-on tackle anyone he sees jumping the gate. (Eagle Trib.)

WEBSTER WORRIES: Oh no! Someone left Webster out of the redistricting plan, maybe, probably not though, according to this confused town official. I’m confused too because the story doesn’t say whose district Webster will be in come next year. (Rep. Fattman, perhaps?) Maybe we can talk Connecticut into taking it off our hands. We’ll throw in Dudley too, if they give us a couple naval submarines. (T&G)

THE TWITTERS: They started following me this morning. Day = made.

NOTHING BEATS THE HOBO LIFE: If you think your kid isn’t tough enough and could use some good old fashioned Depression-era confidence building at the hands of a group of psychotic nomads, the Cape Cod Central Railroad has just the thing for the little scampers. (Herald News) Do the hobos know about the fare evasion crackdown?
