Observations on politics, the media and life in Massachusetts and beyond from the left side of the road.

Wednesday, December 13, 2006


Two people flew into Boston from the West Coast today after spending considerable time in the Far East. One is staying (probably). One is going (thankfully).

Check out the online versions of the Boston papers and its clear there's only one story -- Pennant Fever Grips Hub (Japanese version). The return of the Prodigal Son, wandering 20 days around the world rates barely a mention in the briefs.

But one wonders what efforts state troopers went through to check Daisuke Matsuzaka's papers to see if he was eligible to work here. After all, at virtually the same time, Gov. Lame Duck decided to impose his political agenda on the state once again, even over the concerns of Gov.-elect Deval Patrick.

Mitt's not that much of a hate Massachusetts show boater, is he? But imagine what it would do for his popularity in New York?
