From all accounts, Mitt [Romney]'s visit to that veterans shelter just behind Boston's City Hall Plaza was not one of the brighter moments of his campaign for US senator. When director Ken Smith told him that one of the things the shelter needed was fresh milk, Romney replied jokingly that maybe the veterans should be taught how to milk cows.
There's a correction elsewhere in City Weekly today, giving the correct vote for state Sen. Robert Travaglini (D-East Boston) and Republican challenger Anthony Pini of Cambridge. What the correction can't do, however, is note that on the still-unofficial returns, Travaglini was just barely edged by colleague W. Paul White (D-Dorchester) for the highest winning margin among the contested state Senate races. White, in the Suffolk and Norfolk race against Republican Ronald Preble, took 74.045 percent of the vote. In the Suffolk & Middlesex race, Travaglini took 73.614, and captured every precinct but one in Pini's home turf, East Cambridge.
