I wonder if he had the pink one or the bronze one? The Taurus .38 Special comes in at least 14 festive colors. I know this sounds like I'm making light of street crime but WTF is Taurus thinking; Are they trying to sell to kids or what?

I normally think of Ruggles ending at Columbus Ave by the Police headquarters. I'm guessing that the two pieces of that street were once connected?

If you scroll towards Roxbury Crossing from there, you can also see how Columbus and Tremont at rx used to make sense. Now we have Tremont seemingly making a random right hand turn and continuing straight as Columbus.
