Big rocks keep falling on my head...

Yet more wonderful news from Boston's Big Dig...

For those who would like a brief recap: yesterday rocks and other debris started falling from the roof of one of the Big Dig's tunnels, damaging quite a few cars and an ambulance. It turned out that it wasn't from the tunnel crumbling, but from construction going on up above -- it turned out someone hadn't closed off an air intake, and the rubble was falling down the air vent and into the tunnel.

Just wait until Lucas Wall arrives in Boston.

He's been METRO's #1 fan in Houston for the Houston Chronicle, and you can look forward to "The Big Dig Is A Bit Hit!" headlines.

I swear, if Baghdad Bob were a traffic beat reporter, he'd be Lucas Wall.
