the rest of the story on "voting"

Stuart offers this key tidbit about the "vote" for this: "Turns out that it's actually a valid use of quotes, because the "vote" wasn't a popular vote -- it's a vote of the people that work at one of Somerville, MA's, community newspapers. And it just so happens that the publisher of said newspaper owns this real estate company. So basically, it's #1 in their own heads."

So it turns out they might be necessary, I don't know if I should be disappointed, stunned, or vindicated...

This one is a double treat! The unnecessary quotations are matched only by the random capitalization - they have a "Plan"!

You mutilated the comment as well, since a quote within a quote should be single quotes within double quotes:
