Via e-mail this morning, we got a photo of some some graffiti in an elevator at the Park Street T station that seems to indicate the author's carefully considered desire to build a wall to keep out Section 8 recipients. Our correspondent reports he notified the T, which promised a cleanup crew was on the way.

UPDATE: Students exonerated.

One of the Babson dudes who drove around Wellesley College to taunt students there after the election apologized today for being a jerk. No word if his apology is enough to get him back into his frat, which kicked him out.

The Walpole guy who posed in front of a local Mexican restaurant with a large Trump banner, then posted on Facebook that the owners would be paying for the wall, apologized - by way of a full-page ad in the Walpole Times. He says he meant no offense, he was just in a joking kind of mood and besides, it was only that he's a Facebook dunce that he made the post public.
