    For those of you old enough to remember the song,

    Let me tell you the story
    Of a man named Charlie
    On a tragic and fateful day
    He put ten cents in his pocket,
    Kissed his wife and family
    Went to ride on the MTA

    Charlie handed in his dime
    At the Kendall Square Station
    And he changed for Jamaica Plain
    When he got there the conductor told him,
    "One more nickel."
    Charlie could not get off that train.

    Chorus:
    Did he ever return,
    No he never returned
    And his fate is still unlearn'd
    He may ride forever
    'neath the streets of Boston
    He's the man who never returned.

    BOSTON — A federal judge has lifted a gag order on three MIT students who were barred from talking publicly about security flaws they discovered in the Boston transit system's automated fare network

    Leave it to those whacky kids from MIT, to learn the holes in the system. Apparently they foud a way to ride on the Charlie card for free.

    Here's the story from the original injunction.

    I love that song. One of my favorites.

    edit: Also the kids out there may know it since the dropkicks did a version of it (although I think they renamed it Charlie on the MBTA as an update).

    Probably the usual ... members taking things way too seriously.
    Respect goes a long way in discussing politics ... that's for sure.

    i would explain precisely what i was talking about, but the conservative moderator decided to suspend me for a week for merely asking if he killed the thread in question...

    probably suspend me again for merely revisiting the issue he wanted to have go away in the first place ... reflex' thread was that relevant...

    Was that all it was??, if it was it seems rather unjust to me... but then the expectations seem different for different people.

    That couldn't have been all it was. A mod can't suspend someone for asking if he/she killed a thread. That would be ridiculous.

    I thought it was an infraction based suspension? I dunno, but free Press Coverage! When's his 10 days up? My guess is he's not going to be a fan of the no moron clause. For the record, you guys can all call me names, especially stupid & moron, and I won't tattle! :D

    This hottie has moved into my top 5. Of course, I haven't really made a top 5, since every hottie I see seems to have made their way there at some point, but never the less, she's smokin!
