Christmas message lands Boston worker in hot water

BOSTON (AP) - December 28, 2011

Travelers seemed to get a chuckle out of the holiday levity. But Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority officials weren't amused and initially said the dispatcher could be strongly disciplined.

State Transportation Secretary Richard Davey told The Boston Globe on Tuesday any punishment will be light - perhaps just a reminder not to use the signs for anything other than their real purpose.

Davey says the dispatcher is a good and long-term employee of the transit agency and meant well.
