Sonic Overload 11/10/14

It’s almost a week after the elections, with the Republicans taking over the Senate and expanding their majority in the House. I covered it pretty well on the Stench Radio show last week but touch on it briefly this week. One thing I did forget to mention was Obama’s plan to send more troops to Iraq. Wonderful... soon, there will be even more veterans to honor on Veterans Day. I’m not saying that to disparage any veterans but just point out that it’s a shame this has to continue. And one hopes that the Republican-controlled Congress won’t turn their backs on the veterans by cutting programs that assist them... or cut any other valuable social programs for that matter but we know how that’ll probably come out.

Enough... enjoy the show... which I begin with a tribute of sorts to the tearing down of the Berlin Wall 25 years ago this past weekend...

Sonic Overload 11/3/14

As I say at the top of the second segment, former Boston Mayor Tom Menino was one of a kind. He passed away last week at the age of 71, following a long battle with cancer. He kept up a busy schedule until near the end of his life, going on a tour to promote his new book up until a few weeks before his passing. During his 20 year tenure as the city’s mayor (before stepping down last January), Boston continued to evolve as a world-class city.

Menino had his detractors, including the cruel, venal hack columnist Howie Carr, who tagged him with the nickname Mumbles Menino, due to his sometimes difficult to understand diction and frequent malapropisms.  I used to joke he could probably use subtitles—but that doesn’t mean I didn’t hold him in high regard. And despite some people’s impression of him as a buffoon-like character, Menino was sharp and always on top of his game—and he truly cared about the city, about the neighborhoods, about the people. He could have been mayor as long as he wanted but finally left office after his record-long term. The new Mayor, Marty Walsh, has some really big shoes to fill. R.I.P. Mr. Mayor...
