Phone booth and Latin saying outside Shaw's in Hyde Park

First, there's the seemingly still working pay phone outside the Shaw's on Hyde Park Avenue. And then there's the page with the Latin on it, a phrase that literally means "A crow doesn't pluck out another crow's eye," which is reassuring, at least if one is a crow, but which is an old Roman saying that's equivalent to our "honor among thieves." The saying has been popping up in the southern reaches of the Athens of America for several years now.

Closing at the Cavan Cafe, 1406 Hyde Park Ave., seemed to be going normally early on Jan. 13: Sure, people kept pulling into the parking lot after 1 a.m. thinking they could get a drink even though the bar has a 1 a.m. closing time, but that's par for the course. Except this time, the cars kept coming, even as people were leaving from a large party inside. Men started bellowing at each other. And soon, fights were breaking out all over the parking lot and the two cops who initially responded had to call for reinforcements and whip out their pepper spray to try to get things under control.

Two crews shoveled snow at Readville station, yet pedestrians are still having trouble

Jake could only marvel at the amazing shoveling job done by separate Keolis and DCR crews at the steps down from Readville station to the sidewalk below: One cleared the stairs and another cleared a path along the sidewalk and yet, somehow, neither thought to make it so pedestrians could actually get from one to the other.

Keolis did promise to send down a crew to finish the job.
