Earlier this morning, Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick has lifted the boil water edict he issued in Boston and surrounding communities on Saturday afternoon.
Aside from a temporary shortage of bottled water you would have hardly known we were under a state of emergency. Then again we're not in Tennessee.
I should note that at one point I had more bottled water in my fridge than was at either Stop N' Shop or CVS.
Given that this all came and went in less than 72 hours I think Governor Patrick's poll numbers will go up as I speculated here on Saturday.
But is the lab coat really necessary? Even Obama has other people wear them.
