I'm looking for a restaurant with German food, things like wiener schnitzel and interesting sausages. A restaurant rather than a bar or beer garden, something like the now-closed Jacob Wirth. Thanks.

WFXT reports National Grid has told that worker who blared his horn and yelled at a Belmont woman with Warren, pro-LGBTQ and national-park stickers on her car that his services are no longer needed.

WFXT has today's moment of sunshine from Belmont, where a National Grid worker who supports Dear Leader spotted a car bedecked with evil Elizabeth Warren, pro-LGBTQ and national-parks stickers and decided it made perfect sense to sidle up behind it in his work van and lay on his horn and when the owner of the car came out to see what the fuss was about cranked up the Rush Limbaugh on his radio and, after pretending to play dumb as he sat there in his Trump 2020 hat, decided to give the woman a piece of his big ol' mind.

And now he has to sit through lectures from his bosses about how that's not the best idea.

Old Christmas trees on pedestrian bridge over Rte. 2 on Arlington/Belmont line

There's probably a good reason why the pedestrian bridge over Rte. 2 at the Arlington/Belmont line is packed with all the old Christmas trees that David Weininger spotted this morning.

Prevailing sentiment in progressive haunts is “2016, don’t let the door hit you on the way out.” Between a stressful election season, acts of terror, and the crisis in Syria, many of us will be glad to see the calendar page turn on Sunday night. Still, to every cloud there is a silver lining, and at least when it comes to tackling climate change in the US, Massachusetts was a bright spot amidst the clouds of 2016.

The Supreme Judicial Court today upheld a Belmont man's OUI conviction that came about due to an anonymous 911 about a swerving car on Memorial Drive by a state trooper who didn't actually see the swerving.

But in upholding John DePiero's conviction for a 2011 arrest, the state's highest court broke with the US Supreme Court, which ruled in 2014 that anonymous 911 calls are inherently legitimate as tips that can lead to a traffic stop these days because false 911 calls can be tracked. The SJC ruled that, in Massachusetts at least, unless 911 callers are first informed their calls can be tracked, an anonymous caller with malice on his mind might still make that false report if he was unaware he could be tracked.
