Once Again Quoted in Brookline TAB

I seem to be making a habit of this...

I was interviewed for an article on today's Brookline TAB, Thief picks Coolidge Corner. There's been reports of a pickpocket targeting people shopping in Coolidge Corner, and the TAB asked me to comment as a Town Meeting Member and local resident. Here's the part I'm in:

Michael Burstein, a Precinct 9 Town Meeting member and Fuller Street resident, said he had heard "rumors" about the pickpocketing but said most people he knows expect police to nab the thief.

"Coolidge Corner is a business area," he said. "It does get a lot of traffic and, you know, occasionally these things do happen."

As Teal'c would say, indeed.
