Laugh of the day 

Guess who said the following?

I have always believed the purpose of government is to help improve people's lives, and I'm thrilled about leading Boston forward in the years to come. I'm equally dedicated to utilizing the latest technology to create helpful resources that benefit Bostonians.

Turns out it was Thomas Menino, Mayor of the City of Boston, Massachusetts. Let's see what else Menino said:

1/31/2007 - Released by Mayor's Office

Statement on Today’s Suspicious Packages

First, I want to congratulate the Boston Police Department and all the public safety agencies for responding in a coordinated effort today. As most of you know, there were reports of nine suspicious packages found throughout the city and area earlier today. At this time there is no reason to be alarmed.

In fact, a few hours later, it would have been good if Menino had noted that this was a non-issue. He didn't.

These devices have all been secured and are under investigation to see if they are connected and where they came from. I want to be certain that we take all of these reports very seriously.

Even when there's egg on his face afterwards.

The coordinated response by all departments proves the system we have in place works.

He probably regretted that statement later, when he discovered that the devices had been installed weeks ago. But at least the Boston security forces neutralized the dangerous devices before the people in other cities did.

Today, my Office of Emergency Preparedness and the Boston Police Department shared intelligence with the Boston Regional Intelligence Center, Boston Fire Department, Emergency Medical Services, Massachusetts State Police, ATF and FBI and we will continue to do so whenever necessary.

Yes, they shared intelligence. What does this mean?

1 a (1) : the ability to learn or understand or to deal with new or trying situations : REASON; also : the skilled use of reason (2) : the ability to apply knowledge to manipulate one's environment or to think abstractly as measured by objective criteria (as tests) b Christian Science : the basic eternal quality of divine Mind c : mental acuteness : SHREWDNESS

2 a : an intelligent entity; especially : ANGEL b : intelligent minds or mind

3 : the act of understanding : COMPREHENSION

4 a : INFORMATION, NEWS b : information concerning an enemy or possible enemy or an area; also : an agency engaged in obtaining such information

5 : the ability to perform computer functions

Turns out Menino was talking about definition 4. Not sure when he'll get around to definition 1.
