In case you're wondering, that's "60 Minutes" correspondent Lara Logan trailing Mark Wahlberg all over town. We're told the CBS News show is putting a piece together on the former Dochester juvie to coincide with the release of his much-anticipated new movie, "The Fighter." Wahlberg, who plays Lowell-bred boxer "Irish" Micky Ward in the made-in-Massachusetts movie, stopped by the Boys and Girls Club of Dorchester, among other haunts in his old 'hood. We do hope the actor's friend and confidante, Father Jim Flavin, gets a little face time because without him Wahlberg might be behind bars today. "The Fighter" is due out Dec. 10.
