Help! My world is crumbling around me!

Two days in a row, I find myself praising (read: not tearing him a new one) Boston Mayor Tom "Mumbles" Menino for employing basic common sense in his decision making (a trait all too rare 'round these parts).

Looking to continue a restaurant boom, Mayor Thomas M. Menino is seeking state permission to hand out more beer and wine licenses to lure more eateries to neighborhoods from Hyde Park to East Boston.

This can only mean one of two things.

(A) It's an election year

(B) He's been abducted by little green space people and replaced with a cloned alien lifeform.

I hope it's (B).
