Correlating Mayor Curley With Governor Patrick

From an amazon.com email I received recently:
Dear Amazon.com Customer,

Customers who have purchased or rated "The Rascal King: The Life and Times of James Michael Curley, 1874-1958" by Jack Beatty might like to know that "A Reason to Believe: Lessons from an Improbable Life" will be released on April 12, 2011. You can pre-order yours at a savings of $9.96 by following the link below.

A Reason to Believe: Lessons from an Improbable Life
Governor Deval Patrick
From this I surmise that people who are interested in the totally corrupt and personally profitable political machine known as Mayor Curley will also be interested in the political life of Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick? Not even the governor's enemies would make that connection...

Brighton Fourth-Grader Wins City Spelling Bee

Zachary Doiron, a 4th grader at the Edison K8 School in Brighton, yesterday won the City of Boston's spelling bee by correctly spelling the word "toboggan."

Fourth- through eighth-graders in Boston compete in the annual event. Edison K8 School students held their qualifying event last month.

As the winner, Zachary now has the opportunity to compete in the national spelling bee in Washington, D.C. in May.
