Subbing For Kerry

Seantor Kerry cancels a scheduled speech to the annual meeting of the U.S. Conference of Mayors so as not to cross the Boston police union picket line. According to the NYT, Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney happily took his place. Boston Mayor Thomas Menino was not to happy with Kerry’s call: “”Some of the mayors here are disappointed, frustrated, angered by Kerry not showing up. It’s all about respect of the mayors, and there was no respect of the mayors.”
