  1. What the h#@! is the North End Waterfront Community Council. I wish these people would get facts and names of groups straight. Not a very good report in my opinion.

  2. – She sounds cute (albeit a little bored).
    – I hope she gets an A.
    – I would give her an A, plus a bag of 20s, if she could get her peers to stop partying ’til 3am on rooftops, put their late-night trash in barrels, use the correct garbage bags, and walk to the right on the sidewalk.

  3. Remember what I said about your chances of getting a parking garage for residents? Same odds apply here!

  4. She by no means deserves an A. Her English is at a 5th grade level, and her articles are replete with grammatical errors. More important, she calls NEWRA an activist group that is trying to preserve the Italian fabric of the neighborhood. I think not!
