James Aloisi may have been hired for his political insider skills honed while working as a behind-the-scenes lawyer for the Big Dig. But he’s clearly inept
working under the spotlight
as a transportation czar in the Internet age. His ham-handed attempt to cozy up to the BMG crowd
didn’t work for two reasons: 1.) The BMGers may have gleefully posted his response, but they weren’t really biting because they were too busy barfing
. 2.) He was probably clueless that Globe, Herald and other reporters
read BMG and other blogs, usually in between sips of coffee or while chomping on a sandwich at their newsroom desks. … Ah, for the days when the flies weren’t on the Anthony’s Pier 4 walls!
BTW: Note in his apology
the reference to the “mess we inherited.” We
? So says the former Big Dig attorney who was rehired to help clean up the Big Dig mess.
