10 ) Insane weather in the south kills more than 300 people as of this writing.
9 ) Massachusetts engages in Wisconsin-lite dealings with municipal unions over collective bargaining rights for health care. A prudent move to cut costs while still respective unions, or the first step toward gutting rights for public employees?
8 ) Former House Speaker Sal DiMasi’s federal corruption trial inches toward its formal start. Bet he’s wishing he could set the rules for the process now, huh?
7 ) Alan Khazei, who failed to capture the Democratic nomination in the 2009 special US Senate election, announces his intention to face the man who won that race, Scott Brown, in 2012. This could be a really good race (especially in Martha Coakley doesn’t show up to screw things up for the Democrats again).
6 ) President Obama releases his full birth certificate, causing critics to claim some sort of odd victory — perhaps in an effort to hide their embarrassment at being so thoroughly revealed as a bunch of clueless buffoons who were absolutely, completely, totally WRONG WRONG WRONG about the legitimacy of Obama’s citizenship.
5 ) Britain celebrates the big wedding day, which will cost taxpayers more than $20 million pounds (about $33 million). So THAT’S why they really passed all those “austerity measures”; they were banking money for security and clean-up.
4 ) Barbara Lenk, an openly gay candidate for the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, is accused during a public interview of promoting the gay agenda. Yeah, how dare those gays demand they be treated with dignity and respect!
3 ) The re-appearance of Right Whales near the Cape has Cape Wind opponents in a tizzy worrying about the mammals’ safety…because Right Whales are so populous in the area of Horseshoe Shoal, with its maximum depth of 55 feet.
2 ) The new season of “Doctor Who” premieres. Important? No. Thrilling for Doctor Who geeks? Damn straight!
1 ) Donald Trump continues his transformation into the snotty rich kid you went to elementary school with. This week he claimed Obama’s academic standing was inadequate to get him into the Ivy League schools he attended. Next week he’ll claim Obama’s mama wore combat boots and swam after troop ships.
