Hi, Nelson - While I understand your point about the bond holders, the article reports there "may" be no difference between the Budget Commission and a receiver - some predict there will likely be a very big difference between them, but not in the taxpayers' favor.

Thanks, Matthew - You were correct, it was in fact Saturday. Edited accordingly, folks.

After reviewing the report and double checking with Public Information Officer Det. Jamie Paone, it's clear I erred in describing the location of the arrest. The two men were arrested outside Our Pad, not inside. I've edited the story to correct the error.

Thanks, Really, but I think Jacqueline was replying to the Rob whose comment I had to delete - a four letter word got past my discerning eye. I'll take compliments anytime, though!

Hi, all - The addresses for the arrested individuals have been added. Sorry I left out that bit of info. I also had to delete Rob's (no relation) comment for offensive language, though I suspect the sentiment is shared by most readers.

Frankie - You're right that it's about the money: RIDE suggested it as a cost-cutting measure, and the Budget Commission, which is working to make the city financially sound, is probably also interested in the details.
I thought this was clear in the article, but McGuire-Forcier states she's interested in information about the plan, to give to the Budget Commission when they ask about it — not interested in the plan for its own sake.

Lorrie - I had intended to illustrate that by linking to a previous article on the Budget Commission's 5 -year plan to settle the deficit in this sentence:
"As with the former supplemental tax plan, the $2.5 million raised (actually $2,496,000, according to Ward) is one element of a multi-faceted plan to wrest the city from financial insolvency within five years."

Michael - I think there's a good case to be made that not all city officials are untrustworthy. The resignations you reference were reportedly the result of present officials' efforts to bring inappropriate actions to light: http://www.necn.com/pages/landing_politics?blockID=119518&tagID=21225
