@lampsofgold This is a good question and I don't know the answer. I had to really compress the text here, so I want to clarify that the federal bureau named did not mishandle the mummy; the federal authorities are blaming local officials in Guanajuato.

A note on the liquor license story: historically, liquor licenses in Boston have been very restricted, and can't be changed by the city itself; it has to go through the state Legislature.

The small number of liquor licenses has left many restaurants in Boston's Black and brown communities without options to serve alcohol, which is typically very important to the profitability of those businesses.

Have been loving the Harbor Bot, which tweets photos and locations of boats in the harbor, based on sites like MarineTraffic.com.

@Kevin IKR!? During the pandemic I briefly lived in a house in Weymouth where I could see boats -- tankers, etc. coming in and out all the time. I discovered MarineTraffic.com then (even tried to contribute some photos and positions but my offerings always got deleted because I guess the pictures weren't sharp enough 😂)
