    Finally, at long last, someone has gone broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public. And it couldn’t have happened to a nicer bunch — Boston 2024. There is a God. The lesson here is from Abraham Lincoln: You can’t fool all of the people all of the time — even in Massachusetts. It’s a great victory for the people, but it could easily have gone the other way. What if Marsha Coakley had been elected governor? The state would already be on the hook for $5 billion in cost overruns. Like most flim-flams, the Boston Olympics collapsed abruptly. Perplexing,...

Five cents per round adds up to a roughly $2.50 increase for a box off handgun ammunition. The legislation would also impose a $500 fine on gun owners who do not report guns lost or stolen.

You can see your car when you stand next to it. Even the subway is running (more or less). But if you want a reality check, come to the Seaport district, where you will find an astonishing residual artifact from the glory days of February: a 12-foot-high frozen mound, a remnant of the record 110.6 inches of snow that accumulated in Boston over the winter.

    UPDATE: Apparently the person outside Massachusetts they were targeting was Pamela Geller; CNN called her for comment on it. Will the media elites begin to call for her protection and the defense of the freedom of speech? - This report doesnt say who they had in mind, but they do seem to have had someone specific.

While some Muslim advocates are attempting to spark inner-city angst over the shooting by exploiting recent events in Ferguson, NYC, and Baltimore, others are putting pressure on the police as they investigate the terror plot. Rahim, the man who was shot by anti-terrorism officers in Boston yesterday, and Wright, the suspect now in custody, were allegedly ISIS-inspired jihadists who had planned to behead a police officer in a plot disturbingly reminiscent of the...
