They Got Him

I turn on the TV this morning to find that the FBI has finally captured Whitey Bulger, the notorious Boston crime lord who's been one of our most wanted for a long time. Wow things sure are getting done these days. First Osama, then Bulger. Also curious how America's Most Wanted gets cancelled, then some of our most wanted are found (not saying there's a corollary, just think it's funny happenstance).

It used to be there were things you took for granted as absolutes here. The Red Sox will never win a series, Whitey Bulger will always be out there somewhere, etc. But now that the Bruins have won the Stanley Cup, it seems our sports teams have all been good again recently. Now they got Whitey Bulger. I don't know how to live in such a world. What's next, a clean Charles River?

I kid of course. Good job, FBI.


  1. I did not know they canceled America's Most Wanted. Maybe it will be picked up by a cable network. I was happy and very surprised that Whitey was captured.

  2. AMW ended this year and Fox decided not to renew it as a regular series. However, there will be a few "specials" airing regularly throughout the year. I think it came down that Fox decided it was no longer cost-effective to keep producing.
