Fare hikes continue to tick people off – Lynch’s free parking – Lantigua racks up fines – Patrick overse es rob ot construction

SAVE OUR NICKELS: Holy heck, people are upset about this MBTA fare increase. And that’s just the T riders, mostly. Wait until the “long term” solution kicks in and the rest of the state, the ones with cars, feel the burn as well. (PI)

THE HERALD SO WISHES THEY HAD THIS: I guess certain elected officials don’t need to take the T when they have sweet free parking spaces at local schools. And shouldn’t this kind of thing be splashed across the front page of the Herald underneath a photo of a scowling Lynch? Did the two papers start to forget who was who once they began using the same printing presses? (Globe) (h/t K.C.)

PROGRAMMED TO BAIL OUT OWN MANUFACTURERS: Meanwhile, conservative nightmares come true as the Governor oversees construction of an army of Obamabots. (Ledger)

THAT’LL GET HIM: Willie Lantigua is being fined $25 a day for doing/not doing something or other. Probably just for being that awesome. (Eagle Trib.)
