    Come to think of it this mysterious bicyclist has been active in my kitchen as well. My wife got up this morning and discovered that someone had eaten all the donuts! I mentioned that I had seen a bicyclist cycle through our kitchen that morning while I was having my coffee and reading the paper. She seemed, though outraged at first, to accept that explanation. So no charges will be filed. I’m just wondering if the City Council will have the courage to enact some kind of legislation that cracks down on the mysterious bicyclist.

  • Re mysterious cyclist: The gas pedal got stuck as he was returning home from an auto show, where his truck got third place. Hmmm, something fishy.

    Something similar happened to me. My wife found me with traces of pie all over my face, and I told her a mysterious cyclist caused me to trip and fall face first into the pie and swallow it all.

    Re: Boston Olympics: I want to remind everyone that Mayor Walsh’s self-righteous announcement to cancel the Olympics offer merely cancelled out his previous self-serving offer to host them, a whopping 8 months ago, with taxpayers covering the cost overruns. https://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/2015/07/29/lesson-learned/rHO7ppIiWJq1xBHZBMA8ON/story.html
