Obama Claus is coming to town

Deval Patrick and the state's congressional delegation are making their lists and checking them twice. It appears Santa will have some competition in the near future.

Obama Claus is coming to town, on a slightly delayed scheduled from the fat guy in the red suit.

The wish list -- all $4.7 billion of it -- roads, school, sewer plants and seawalls -- all non-sexy stuff that has languished thanks to the Big Dig fiasco and its drain on resources.

Of course, one man's pump priming is another's pork, and the Herald's enterprising reporter has singled out four projects that he considers wasteful. I may agree about the radio station, but you know it wouldn't hurt to expand your scope beyond Boston and learn about the problems Worcester is having with beetles.

I guess we know who is the Grinch at this party.

Also, painting a large metal bridge is not optional. You can paint it now or watch it rust away later.

Or see it crumble and have pieces stolen -- like the Longfellow.
