RIP: Thomas M. Menino, Mayor Who Transformed Boston, Dies at 71 – NYTimes.com

Mr. Menino remained a creature of its neighborhoods. He spent his whole life in Hyde Park, where he was born. He spent his days ambling along the city’s streets, talking with residents, reporting potholes and rarely missing a ribbon cutting. In a remarkable achievement for a big-city mayor, he met more than half of Boston’s 625,000 residents in person, according to polls. He left office with approval ratings at an astronomical 82 percent.

  1. I have to say this…free speech and all!
    It is that word in the article that bounced off the screen and hit me in my third eye…..grin
    The word is ‘driven’ he woz a ‘driven’ man……my immediate reaction woz no wonder he got sick……I shake around ‘driven’ men…I want to run…
    Oh by the by……I went back on that political blog and I left a comment. So only one ban! phew!

  2. I wouldn’t have called him driven, I think he just had too much wine and bad food at political and neighborhood functions. He was a really nice guy. Only a short banishment – musta not been as bad as you thought – now you will have to tell ’em wot you really think – grin.

  3. Ok…so I am paranoid about the personality of ‘driven’ people…I have reason to be 😦
    Hey ..this is good therapy! Grin
    And free! grin
