2 vandals attack, damage a bust of Jesus in Copley Square library
A 160-year-old marble bust of Jesus was attacked at the main branch of the Boston Public Library earlier this month, knocked from its perch on the grand staircase and sent crashing to the floor.

MIT Computer Whiz Arrested With Fake Bomb At Logan Airport
