"that Barbarous Crew"

Cronica reports that "Indians" are not allowed in Boston unless they are incarcerated. The law in question dates from 1675.

Commenters raise a question: could the law mean that Dr. Patel the internist should be thrown into prison? "Original intent" would have to be examined.

I'm sure you in fact understand the original intent, and who it was meant to keep out. But the Dr. Patel joke is cute, I guess, when you're not on the receiving end.
