Be tall to be there: Boston covered by 6-feet snow; 60000 tons of salt dumped onto roads; NY, Vermont help dig Massachusetts out
Boston Police Commissioner William Evans: "I hope it snows every day!" Homicides and other major crimes in the city have dropped by a whopping 34 percent so far this year, compared with the same period last year. Vehicle theft decreased by 46 percent, larceny by 35 percent, and burglaries by 32 percent, according to data provided by the Boston Police Department.
'murder-free' record New York City has gone 11 days without a homicide, its longest stretch without any on modern record, the New York Police Department said Friday. The record was broken midnight Thursday. It was the 11th full day without a reported homicide. Police Commissioner Bill Bratton hushed talk of the streak Friday on "CBS This Morning." "Shh ... we don't want to jinx it," Bratton told host Charlie Rose. "We're into our 12th day now, Charlie. Eleven is a record and let's keep it going."

Millions of GMO mosquitoes to be released in the Florida Keys if FDA allows experiment. Nightmare? At least 130,000 frightened
Dummy's simplest questions:
1. Can such kind of "experiment" be undone if consequences run wildly away from Florida Keys?
2. Will millions of flying mosquitoes "obey Lab's rules" to stay where they are released?
3. Mosquitoes, by nature, bite. How to guarantee the released males from mating with poisonous "super powerful" female mosquitoes (some spread deadly disease) whose offspring will survive?
Millions of GMO Insects Could Be Released in Florida Keys
Never before have insects with modified DNA come so close to being set loose in a residential U.S. neighborhood.
Dengue and chikungunya are growing threats in the U.S., but some people are more frightened at the thought of being bitten by a genetically modified organism. More than 130,000 people signed a Change.org petition against the experiment.
genetically modified mosquitoes could have unintended consequences
Already, the Times reports, "3.5% of the insects in a lab test survived to adulthood despite presumably carrying the lethal gene."
