Quincy Quarry Weekly Fish Wrap: things go boom boom in the night!
While this past week was a quiet one for a change for political hacks – one can only assume that many of them took off early for the long Labor Day weekend or are just not doing their jobs as usual but no one else is around to notice, there was other troubling news.
For example, Quincy police officers working the graveyard shift had to roll to a 2 AM shooting in West Quincy in the wee hours of Wednesday morning.
While particulars are still scarce, two men purportedly from out of town were variously struck with hot lead care of an as many as twenty-seven shot fusillade.
Needless to say, as Quincy is the largest Massachusetts city without a hospital, both men were transported elsewhere for medical treatment.
On a brighter – or least mellower – note, former New England Patriot and NFL great Rob Gronkowski announced his latest venture: trafficking in cannabidiol production for “medicinal” uses.
How big as well as unexpected was this news?
So big was the news about Gronk opting to become a big player in the alternative medicinal business that even the staid Boston broadsheet felt that still active NFL players should be allowed to use his new joint venture’s products even if “… the efficacy of these products is unproven.”
That and how Commissioner of the National Football League Roger Goodell is surely at the ready to stick it to the New England Patriots whenever and however he can.
In any event, and as the Quincy Quarry newsroom has long known, Quarry stories all but write themselves.
