Best quotes of the day

From today's Boston Sunday Globe:

Red Sox second baseman Alex Cora about slugger David Ortiz, "Shakespeare." "Shakespeare?" asks reporter Gordon Edes. Cora replies, "He hits home runs, he writes books."

Betsy Wall, executive director of the MA Office of Travel and Tourism, on the secret to a smooth road trip with her two kids, ages 10 and 13. As quoted by reporter Cindy Atoji, "I'm a firm believer in packing candy.... I also bring fruit, which is usually untouched, but I feel better about myself."

This article from the Globe is also interesting, and very relevant to your principal topic:

Unfortunately, it makes no comment on BIDMC.

Very emotional...

It is because BIDMC has not yet had an unscheduled inspection from the Joint Commission.
