Quote of the Day: Bumbling Idiot Edition

I wonder if any of my readers would be willing to help out old Mumbles here. He seems to have run out of scapegoats.


BOSTON -- It was a violent Fourth of July evening around Boston, as six people were shot, and two of them were killed, police said.

A 17-year-old boy was shot in the head and killed at a cookout on Edwardson Street in Hyde Park at about 8 p.m., police said.

In a separate shooting in Hyde Park, four people were shot on West Street, near Hyde Park Avenue, and suffered nonlife-threatening injuries, police said.

And early Saturday morning, a 21-year-old man, who was walking with friends, was killed in a shooting on Dabney Street in Roxbury, police said. The killing was Boston's 33rd of the year, one more than at this time last year.

We can’t explain it. We never know what’s going to happen, but last night was one of those nights we all regret,” said Boston Mayor Thomas Menino.

Translation: I got nothing. You know it. I know it. Vote for me.
