Yesterday, a member of the Jamaica Plain Facebook group reports, a guy was walking up and down Centre Street trying to get stores to post signs (which he conveniently had with him) that maskless people are welcome there and that the stores realize they can't ask customers why they're not wearing masks because of "HIPPA" and the Fourth Amendment.

Canary

Look familar? Contact the MSPCA.

Boston Police report that when an officer doing paperwork at District E-5 was alerted a wayward canary was risking death in the Holy Name rotary just outside the station doors, he rushed into action, stopping traffic and scooping up the tweetybird for a seat of honor in his cruiser. Nobody came forward to claim the bird, so police handed it over to the MSPCA for care.
