As a deeply personal note, Adam, one of this year's victims of murder had been a classmate of mine in middle school. Unfortunately, the last time I experienced this was when one of our contemporaries himself was murdered.

So yeah, this is something that I have been paying attention to since eighth grade. I appreciate all you do to report the facts and occurrences accurately.

SO, HUMANS, CAN WE JUST CANCEL ALL BEEFS UNTIL COVID-19 IS DECLARED SMOTE?!?!

Last time I checked 86 American Legion Hwy was in 02124. Where do you see Mattapan?
