Never trust British tabloids: Hilaria/Hilary Baldwin grew up on Beacon Hill, so, yeah, she's a Bostonian

The Washington Post goes to the archives and finds old articles in both the Herald and the Beacon Hill Times that prove Alec Baldwin's wife grew up on Beacon Hill, Pinckney Street, to be exact, so, she can call herself a Bostonian and we were wrong to trust the Daily Mail, as one commenter cautioned us yesterday (she only went to school in Weston). Also, we can now return to never thinking/talking about her again.

That daily commute back and forth to Weston can be taxing mentally and physically.

I'm not making this up. He lived on Pinckney Street too. He at 68. She at 19.

Are there fumes coming up from the Red Line tunnel causing people to change themselves into what they are not?

Ah yes. A "Rockefeller" at a time when family names passed as branding.

I suspect those "fumes" are merely the ancient whiff of fame and fortune that may be inherited, earned, married into, or just grifted.

Book about him from Germany through Cali (where he murdered two people) to living in Beacon Hill claiming to be part of the Rockefeller family. Not sure why people were so ready to believe him - he'd pull a key (an actual key) out of his pocket claiming that it was the key to Rockefeller Center. ok. Amazing true story.

“ Also, we can now return to never thinking/talking about her again.”.

Ok. But I’d already forgotten about her.

Is this a do as I say, not as I do?

I humbly suggest that you don’t take everything literally and make liberal use of the scroll bar.

Growing up on Beacon Hill in the land of the Cabots and Lodges is dull matter for a biography when you're not on Mt Vernon St.

It's been around since at least 1910, supposedly written by John Collins Bossidy as a toast.

But in any case, there was an update after a Philadelphia judge struck down a demand from the Boston Cabots that he not allow a man named Kabotchnik to change his name to Cabot.

And this is good old Boston,
The home of the bean and the cod,
Where the Lowells have no one to talk to
Since the Cabots speak Yiddish, by God.

I love everything about this story. Maybe a statue of the Philadelphia judge could replace that cringeworthy “white savior and grateful semi-human” statue that just came down.

I'm intimately familiar with the place. She has a very privileged background. Lots of very wealthy foreign students. Remember one kid totalled his Porche. Mom and Dad back in Japan just gave him another one. Opus Dei held conferences there for the rich Spanish speaking students.

Never trust the Daily Fail is good advice, yes.

Their politics are dubious, their health "reporting" equally so: according to them, everything in the universe either causes or cures cancer or both.
