Henry Louis Gates-gate

So by now, you’ve most likely heard of all the brouhaha behind the Henry Louis Gates arrest by the Cambridge Police. Like everyone else in the Boston media, Gatesgate took over my life over the weekend as a result of President Obama’s remarks that the police acted “stupidly.”

I’m not complaining — it’s almost like my own personal stimulus package! I worked four-straight days over the weekend.

Here’s a few from the Cambridge Police’s press conference last Friday showing support for arresting officer Sgt. James M. Crowley.
