State Sen. Jack Hart, D-South Boston, is resigning pretty much immediately, the Dorchester Reporter alerts us.

After watching these excerpts from the Senate battle over getting rid of Evacuation Day and Bunker Hill Day, I can't tell who's worse: Some senator from Godknowswhere, MA, who briefly affects an Irish brogue to condemn our holidays and who defends Christmas as being "for the children," or our own Jack Hart, who says that unlike the rest of the state, "we have real history here in the city," nay, we have "a historic history" and if you strip that from our bosoms, what's next, gutting Thanksgiving?

You may recall the failed effort in the state Senate to repeal Evacuation Day and Bunker Hill Day. Forget the hack issue. Over in Charlestown, where they have some hallowed Revolutionary ground, some people are annoyed at this affront to the memory of those who payed the ultimate price for our nation's freedom:

... With Bunker Hill Day approaching, isn't it amazing that one would use our country's history, our state's history, OUR neighborhood's history to make a speech and mock us (several republicans did so and several members of the Senate voted to rescind these recognitions of our special history). A big thanks to Senator Jack Hart, who was the only one to rise and defend our traditions (Galluccio did not chooose to defend Bunker Hill Day by speaking on the floor of the Senate) so thanks Jack Hart from all the friends of Bunker Hill Day and for taking on the Republicans.

Of course, Hart represents South Boston, which played a key role in forcing the British out on Evacuation Day.

The Herald reports South Boston state Sen. Jack Hart is proposing moving the Aquarium to Southie, City Hall to the Aquarium site and, um, something to City Hall Plaza (ooh, I know, I know: Luxury apartments!).

Of course, the same exact argument made against moving City Hall to South Boston (lack of real mass transit, unless you consider the Silver Line real mass transit) would apply to the Aquarium.
