Friday news dump

There was a lot of sturm and drang in the media last year whenever Deval Patrick opted to release bay news on a Friday afternoon. But it appears what's good for Deval is also good for Bobby and Terry.

The House and senate Ways and Means committee chairs opted for a Friday afternoon statement to alert local officials about a 4 percent, $200 million cut in local aid in the upcoming fiscal year.

Funny, no push back on the timing of the announcement although there was the obligatory effort to say legislative action will wind up putting egg on Patrick's face.

Somehow I think the big headlines about school cuts and library closings aren't about to go away anytime soon.
