The pace of justice

This is not Mike
Out of the blue, my friend Mike recently received a summons to appear in court for failing to pay the fine for a traffic violation that occurred in 1992.  Yes, 1992.  Twenty years ago.

He arrived in the court serving South Boston and said to the court official, "I guess I have been on the lam longer than Whitey Bulger!"

The official laughed and said, "Get out of here. Case dismissed."

damn fools in Mass. With penalties and interest such as the IRS applies, that fine would have cured your budget deficit
