Battle of the Bulger

Howie Carr has a column that I can't read behind a subscription firewall, but I know what it says anyway. "Xmas 11, and he's still naughty" reads the headline on Whitey Bulger's continued avoidance of law enforcement. It's interesting that today the Globe has a Bulger piece too, albeit with a very different emphasis. It seems that fighting terrorism is actually a higher priority. That's no reason to let up on our political enemies, though, right Howie?

I missed the Herald these past few months. Upon my arrival back in Boston Friday, near the airport I spied a Herald on sale with the blaring front-page headline "Killers on the Loose." Some things haven't changed, I see.
