'Massachusetts will fail':
Reader No. 1 on the state health-care plan and my music post from yesterday:
"Common sense is in short supply. At least with regards to our new health insurance mandate - I had to find it on the pages of USA Today
. Which will be the longer Republican legacy: the Reagan Revolution or Kinder Gentler Government?
"I had much to say on your recent roundup of Boston books and Boston rock, will send it along shortly. Speaking of the Nervous Eaters, the increasingly unpredictable WBOS 92.9 actually played the band's original 'Loretta' a couple of weeks back - yes, those call letters were WBOS, not WMBR."Hub Blog's response
-- I have very bad vibes about the health-care plan. They're already ratcheting up estimated premium costs -- and the program hasn't even been implemented yet. ... Following is a blatant theft of an imitation a friend did of the hypothetical reaction of Sal and Trav to the plan's recent front-page coverage in the NYT and WSJ. Picture Trav calling Sal:
Trav: Sal, did you you see the New York Times? We did it. That was us! We're big time!
Sal: Big time!
Hub Blog is eagerly anticipating the first 'Sal and Trav have grown in office' puff piece, marking a true convergence of the Hack-Progressive Alliance in all its splendor.
