Famous folks from South Boston
The former mayor of Boston grew up in Southie and still lives there.
His home was recently burglarized. Flynn lamented the change from the days when his childhood home was always open and neighbors were free to come in and borrow a cup of sugar or flour if need be.
However, Flynn said he was touched by the outpouring of neighborhood support. He said it was "far greater" than any other response to anything during his 50-year political career.
