…that was declared today by the Governor.

The Massachusetts Legislature on Wednesday granted Gov. Deval Patrick the power to appoint a temporary replacement for the late Sen. Edward Kennedy, but with one catch: when the appointment can be made.

Lawmakers declined to allow the law to go into effect immediately, meaning Patrick (D) will either have to declare an emergency situation or wait 90 days to name Kennedy’s (D) successor.

The governor said after press time last night that he would declare an emergency so he can make the pick right away. He has scheduled an 11 a.m. announcement for Thursday.

I was tempted to call my son’s school to make sure they had taken all the necessary steps to cope during our state’s dire emergency.

However there IS an emergency going on, my tenant just lost HIS job today which means that the rent is going to be a real problem since bartenders don’t make an awful lot so he’s going to be collecting only 50% of not much.

If I was working we could manage but now it’s going to be even tighter.

Good thing that the recession is over eh?
