unRELATED, but MUCH MORE IMPORTANT! What has become of the MIDNIGHT visit to the Quabon that supplies Metro-Boston Water by the 7 Muslim Engineering grads? DID our president 'request' that THEY not be charged? Thank you MA State Police for challanging the clerks decision to not charge them with ANYTHING! Just how dumb can America be?
