Stolen wreath poster vows to find the bastard who stole a South End resident's Halloween wreath

Shamus Moynihan couldn't help but notice this flier in the South End, vowing vengeance on the spineless bastard who stole one Appleton Street resident's Halloween wreath. Halloween wreath? Halloween wreath.

Someone takes their Halloween decorations VERY seriously.

Turkey on Appleton Street in the South End

City: Yeah, it's a turkey in the South End, so?

At least some people are taking to contacting 311 when they spot a turkey these days. A couple days ago, the city responded to a 311 report about a turkey just walking around Glide Street in Dorchester:

Turkeys are natural to the City of Boston. If there are no injuries to the turkey, just ensure to stay out of its way.

At press time, the city had yet to respond to a complaint about a wild turkey running down Appleton St in the South End.

Appleton Street sign

Well, that's a relief: Harmony restored to corner of Appleton and Dartmouth.

City officials today marked the case of the font-challenged Appleton Street sign "closed" after DPW workers replaced the sign that was driving one South End resident insane enough to keep filing complaints with the city over the way the initial letter was so much bigger than the rest and how the letters were all crooked.

Bad font on South End street sign

The font kvetcher of the South End filed another report over the Appleton Street sign, after the city marked his or her last complaint as "closed:"

This sign is still crookedly printed and incorrectly using a disproportionate capital-to-lower case scale.

Appleton Street sign

An aggrieved citizen reports from Appleton Street:

The new street signs using the Clearview font are an improvement, but this sign is incorrect. The capital A is out of proportion to the lower case letters, and it is visually jarring. The signs with all capital letters, such as at the corner of Tremont and Hanson Streets, are correctly printed and look much better. The city should continue to correct this. It is a small detail that impacts the visual quality of the South End. Thank you.
