Senate passes energy cost bill – Stand your ground, even if it’s the Cape – Another day another rally

AN AUGUST APRIL: The Senate did a lot yesterday, in case you weren’t paying attention. Though outgoing Sen. Susan Fargo tabled the storied “Right to repair” bill (more time to lobby! Hooray!) they did end up passing an energy cost control bill. Earlier in the day, Senate President Murray laid out her plan to pass a health care cost containment bill by July.

ONE MAN, ON A SANDBAR, ARMED TO THE TEETH: “Stand your ground” is even an issue on the Cape, where there won’t even be any ground in a couple centuries.

BLEEDING TOGETHER: OK, which cause de jure was this rally for? MBTA? Community Colleges? Was it the sit-in, the camp-out, the vigil or the protest march? Can’t they just do this democracy thing the old fashioned way and hire a lobbyist? It’s what Cleisthenes would have wanted.
