This reminds me of a story I read shortly after Weld became governor.  It seems there was 
this one high-level official from the Dukakis administration (whose name escapes me) that 
Weld decided to keep on.  One day, while this guy was in the State House cafeteria, 
someone asked him, "How's the Governor?"  He replied, "I saw him last week.  He's enjoying 
teaching at Northeastern."

This, of course quickly got back to Weld, and fortunately for the hapless official, Weld had a 
sense of humor and had a good laugh over it.
