If you live around Copley and enjoy the Seaport but hate getting there, I have great news. The currently unused Track 61 of the rail system may finally get its day: in the form of a direct train line from Seaport to Back Bay. Much, much more detail at the Globe – including how long you’ll have to wait.

We continue into our second round of the Shite Sixteen. In these match-ups, opposing writers will be telling us why the other bar doesn’t deserve dive status. Vote for the bar, regardless of its flaws, that you think should move ahead. Polls close at 11 p.m.
Today’s Round 2 matchup: Punter’s Pub v Murphy’s Law.
The Shite Sixteen kicks off with our first round the week of March 18. The polls close at 11:00 p.m. the evening that the match-up is posted, and we encourage you to throw your votes around and lobby as hard as you want in the comments. Seriously. Be shameless.
