Quote of the Day - Sticky Hashpipe Edition

From the Boston Globe:

These are safe tunnels.

- Mass. Turnpike Chairman, Matt Amorello

Um...that turkey might have flown when you were talking about groundwater seeping in through the tunnel walls, but in case you missed it, Matt, a woman was crushed to death by a 3-ton concrete slab falling from the tunnel ceiling last night.

Here's a little vocabulary tutorial for His Royal Chairmanship.

Safe (adj.)

1. Secure from danger, harm, or evil.
2. Free from danger or injury; unhurt: safe and sound.
3. Free from risk; sure: a safe bet.
4. Affording protection: a safe place.

Take your pick.

UPDATE: Another entry:

Stop the political bullshit already! This is A republican project! The people do not matter! Doing the right thing does not matter! Political and corruptive gain for their interests is all that matter! I have been warning people about this for years! This tunnel will totally fail eventually like everything else these Repugs are in charge of.

Another angry "progressive" blogger who's sick and tired of the monopolistic stranglehold the Republicans have had on the Commonwealth all these years.
