Railroad

I feel bad about the treatment received by Dan Grabauskas, the MBTA General Manager, by the Deval Patrick administration, as they are moving to fire him and are highlighting his six figure severance package.
~
I never met him, but I marveled at his turnaround of the Registry of Motor Vehicles, when he ran that bureaucratic morass. He changed the processes and completely reversed the culture in that agency which was formerly insulting and totally unresponsive to the public.
~
Don't know the details surrounding the issues at the Mass Bay Transportation Agency, but I know that they have ejected Grabauskas due to "lack of focus". Naturally the media stooges are honing in on his severance package and Patrick chimes in to say it is excessive. This is political pandering because he is simply legally entitled to it.
~
If you can railroad somebody because of "lack of focus", then Deval Patrick should be in the front of that line.

Howdy, there Boomer, Ise back from vacatin' the double wide on a trip to ole El Paso, where I wuz meetin' with some bizness relations from across the Rio Grande. Good timin' on my part, there was plenty of fiestasization and senoritas to serenade. About a fortnight back, I stumbled through the woods to find the the yellow tape marked "DEA" around my mobile hacienda, indicated the jig was about to be up. So much for teachin' basic pharmaceuticals to the local youth. But I digressify. I hi-tailed it from that vicinity, and headed down in ol' Mexico, where we-ins had us a plenty good time, re-fryin' beans and schemin' on this and that. No moss on me, I got outta Dodge, and set up shop right quick. Got me a new gal, since Miss Pudding went down as a material witnesser. Yes, Marguerite, she got a nose like Gonzo from that Muppet tv show, and can she cook, when she aint passed out. I sent message to Shoo Fly to come on down. We will gringofy my new hancienda. And if he is still courting that truck drivin' Sheryl, we can stage a wrasslin' match with her and "Large Marge", these here Mexicans love that wrasslin'. Make us a few peso, work the crowd a bit.See, I am cut from the molds of the great American Entrepreneurs, like Andrew Carnegie and Kernel Sanders.And like General Doug MacArchie, I shall return. Just lammin' it for a spell.. . . Hey! Marge, you get your mitts offa that bottle . . that is my tekeeler!

Republican Appointee. An easy sacrifice. Patrick needs to look like he is doing something other than playing governor of the Commonwealth. He recently got a puppy. And he is having hip surgery next month. And that about sums it up. The guy is a lightweight. Lot of them out there these days.
