Today was supposed to be moving day for a bad-smelling globular mass that came to be known among revolted residents of this Jersey Shore town as the Blob. But the blob proved to be a slippery customer.
The uproar over the blob began about 10 days ago, when a local boater noticed a giant blue and white sulfurous formation floating in a narrow lagoon...
When large brown gaseous bubbles began to appear on the surface above the blob, Mr. Savino suggested that "maybe it's mad at us."
Quote of the day:
"How large a fraction of the executed must be innocent to offend contemporary standards of decency?" - Judge Mark L Wolf, Federal District Court, Boston
Strange; this quote appears in my print edition of the NY Times, but not in the online article by the same author.
