The British are Coming
Yeah, I know I haven't posted anything in a while, and in truth this is rather late considering when the incident took place, but is it possible to label the people running the city of Boston as idiots? To be honest, I'm personally enjoying this very much. The fact that Boston has essentially become a laughingstock makes up for the years that I had to endure the constant love fest that was displayed toward their sports teams. I thought that they were incredibly foolish for hosting a rally in Ray Bourque's honor after he won the Stanley Cup with another team (this is after he requested a trade from Boston because their team basically sucked). I mean fools, would you have still had a rally for the guy if his new team beat Boston in the Stanley Cup Finals? But this shutting down of the city as a result of discovering these Aqua Teen Hunger Force "bomb" devices makes Boston city officials look like complete idiots. I think that it is completely fair to characterize them as such as in no other city in which the devices were placed did anyone remotely panic to this degree. And I really am of the opinion that the Turner Broadcasting System should have battled this through court, if for no other reason, so that we could enjoy the comical arguments made by the Boston authorities.
