We should follow up early on Wednesday morning to see if he wanders back through.

Just because I wear a bandaid on my face it doesn't make me Nelly.

...if walking on water might actually be a quicker way to head south than taking the red line home...

from a reporter named Devlin?

Anyway, maybe it's the Bible Stories comic-con at the BCEC. Not as popular as the video game Dorkfest, which has more of a cult following.

One of the few left who doesn't appear to be denying Christ. If his goal is to remind us that we need Jesus, I'm onboard. Let me be among the first to say that I could use the reminder. Go with God!

He fed the poor and aided the afflicted.

How is this guy doing that?

Keep your reminders to yourself. I don't need a poorly written fantasy novel to teach me about right and wrong.

Given the way real estate has become a religion of its own in greater Boston, it might be a Realtor® who just sold a house walking home with the wooden sign post.

Hopefully he could find someone to put him up for the night.

South Station included a Catholic chapel as part of the station.

My parents went to mass there from time to time around 1973-1974. I remember it because there was no homily and I got to see trains after church, but also because the Federal Reserve was under construction.

Parking was easy then since downtown was a ghost town on Sundays and getting out of mass early allowed my dad to get his football bets in before the 1:00 games with the South End bookies. No joke.

I recall there being no Sunday service on any MBTA commuter train from South Station until some time in teh late 80s or early 90s. So the only people who would have used South Station on Sundays were riding Amtrak.

Maybe if that life is 10 years old.

If he's approximately 6 ft tall and that cross appears to be at a near 45 degree angle, then the vertical beam is about 8-9 feet tall. If you buried it only a foot into the ground, he'd only hang about a foot off the ground and with a stiff enough wind he'd probably topple the thing over. His shoulder is at the cross point of the two beams and his arm is cupping the horizontal beam near the end. There's no way you could nail his hand to the ends of that cross without him sagging to the ground given the height again.

That's not his cross to bear. He must be headed to crucify a child somewhere and you all want to discuss how god-like his motives might be?
