Dumb and dumber

Howie Carr, in an insipid column in the Boston Herald, takes up a lot of bandwidth with adolescent insults against the kids who were arrested at the MassCann Freedom Rally last week. Carr, who seems to have a bizarre fixation about the tattoo placement on the bodies of young boys, intently tracks their arrest records and in some cases, follows them home to tattle on them to their mothers. And he calls them stupid.

Maybe it was a little dumb to blantantly spark up in the park, but not as dumb as it is to spend tens of thousands of tax dollars procressing the non-violent plant smokers through the system. Not that an ineffectual bully like Carr would think of that; but what can you expect from a guy who can only get published in a rag like the Herald?

Maybe someday he'll grow up and get to write for a real newspaper, but if this column is any indication of his talent for social analysis, I suggest his mother not start holding her breath. It appears it will be quite a while longer before she can be proud of her little boy Howie.
