Of course the uniformed services folks would label these fires as suspicious. This story would be FARK-worthy only if they labeled the fires as coincidence.

Anything other than 'hamp is just wrong, sorry. Nobody who's lived in the area for more than 20 years calls it "NoHo" (or the Pioneer Valley "Happy Valley" for that matter) unless they're being just plain trollish.

yes. Hamp makes sense. It's not as if there's a town with the word hampton in it attached to Northampton's southern border.

My apartment on King street aside for the moment, I have no intention of listening to someone from a confederate state about what to call Northampton.

Born and raised in Northampton, went to Jackson St., JFK, and Hamp High. Mom taught nursing at Smith Vocational. My grandparents owned the toy and hobby store that once sat where Fly By Night Futons' addition now sits. I have no intention of listening to someone who moved up here from NYC in the last few years about what to call my home town.

Reads headline: The dazzling deductive skills of the Northhampton, MA police have led them to label as "suspicious", 9 fires that all broke out between 2 and 3am, within a block or two of each other

First reaction: Ha ha! Stupid cops! A series of obvious arsons and the Northampton cops label them merely as "suspicious."

Reads article: Reporter, not cops, uses "suspicious" label and no mention of Northampton cops at all.

Final assessment: Subby is a moran.
