    The operative term here is ‘may’ which means exactly what it says, it does not say ‘will’. I am sure a politicians words provide comfort to some and the deluded, but not the many who have heard this all before. Time to take this gentleman’s feet and hold them over a fire.

      It’s amazing what a little electoral pressure will do. Patrick’s approval numbers are looking grim. The press is already writing his political obituary. He has to start being responsive to the people. We will be out there at his campaign stops asking where this task force is.
