Not a dime's worth of difference

Take a close look at the candidate's side-by-side stands on crime as published in today's Globe. As George Wallace used to say, there's not a dime's worth of difference between the candidates.

Deval Patrick and Kerry Healey are virtually unanimous on their views about the root causes and solutions. DNA testing. CORI. Mandatory minimums. Support for victims and their families. The biggest difference: Patrick declares his support for putting more cops on the street, cops who lost their jobs when the Romney-Healey administration cut local aid.

Healey? Well she obviously isn't comfortable walking through parking garages. But with a State Police escort and a Yukon GMC at her disposal, she has very little to worry about.

That's probably why she has the time to smear Patrick while trying to scare the living daylights out of women who probably use parking garages only during their rare visits to Boston -- and almost never at night.
