Boston Globe Repoter Mystified by Man Playing 'Amazing Grace' Outside Boston Courthouse

Some reporters seem determined to prove themselves to be out of touch idiots today. Not half an hour ago, the Boston Globe's Billy Baker tweeted this.

Ace of Spades is sarcastically equally mystified.

According to his Twitter ID, intrepid reporter Billy Baker is working on a book about jugglers. For whatever that's worth.
