I love Massachusetts. James Bulger, former president of the state Senate and current president of the University of Massachusetts, is testifying before Congress right now, because the FBI handling of his brother, Irish mobster Whitey Bulger, involved, among other things, tipping Whitey off when he was about to be arrested, and giving him the names of other FBI informants, who were then killed.
Like nowhere else, as Dad points out. Which is true for America at large, and until the current Bush administration, I believed that while it was fucked up, it worked. Now I just hide and hope for it to be over.
