About two years ago, my Mother-In-Law took a trip into Boston with a friend. They headed over to the Italian neighborhood, the North End. They entered one of the numerous bakeries strung along Hanover Street and the place was more packed than usual because of a particular patron, the mayor of Boston, Tom Menino.
Not a shy woman, Mother-In-Law walked up to the mayor, shook his hand and said:
It’s nice to meet you, Mayor Giuliani.
