Quote of the Day

"The ordinance comes from the former police chief [Paul McCarthy] having a hard-on for tattoo parlors."

- Westbrook School Committee member (and former City Councilor) Ed Symbol in a Bollard story (June 2008 print issue) about the tattoo parlor ordinance approved by the City Council in April.

Maybe I've got my metaphors mixed, but wouldn't that mean McCarthy liked tattoo parlors?

- John C.L. Morgan

Wow....This comment has received some mileage.

I was merely trying to make clear in basic language why the Police Chief targeted a certain industry in Westbrook. Not politically correct...a tad off color...but effective.

Good to see so many are reading the Bollard. Autographed copies are available for a small donation to the Westbrook Food Pantry…

ah, Ed, the council has not been the same without you. You at least made it interesting, with your wittiness and humor. plus noone stands up for anything anymore, unless you count O'hara's stand on granite curbing for everyone.
