The first 95 days

The Globe certainly didn't break any new ground today with its look at the first 95 days of the Scott Brown Era. Unless you wanted confirmation that our own truck drivin' man is a nice guy who has been the center of a media love fest.

But anything more than a superficial read would bring you to a conclusion that the attention being paid is well, superficial. We learn that he posed with a basketball for Time Magazine to highlight his being among the Top 100 most influential people in the world, beating out Ashton Kutcher and Seth McFarlane but finishing 40 spots behind Lady Gaga.

And in his first 95 days days, he was against an unemployment extension before he was for it; opposed earmarks while lobbying for General Electric and an expensive backup jet engine that somehow isn't an earmark; inflated job losses to justify opposition to Wall Street reform.

Last but by no means least, the JAG lawyer has signed on to a bill that calls for stripping the citizenship of any American, natural-born or not, if someone says they have a tie to terrorism.

Maybe Brown should spend more time reading the "stupid"bank bill and less time enjoying his ever fleeting 15 minutes of fame.

Right on! You nailed it with a good observation of Brown's hypocracy and the Globe's worthlessness.

This new Senator ignores his constituents, unless there's a TV camera around.

Google "John Kerry's accomplishments", put's things in perspective.
