My post to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the Dover Trial decision.

My review of 'Spotlight' in today's New Boston Post.
Watching the movie portray both of these institutions and their leaders so accurately was both strange and gratifying. I did not expect the film to be so good.

Service was superb. On short notice, too, via their web site. Booked the night before at 8PM. Car was ready for me at 8AM. Great car. On return got a lift home. Can't beat this outfit for when you're in a jam.
