With James “Whitey” Bulger sentenced to two life terms by a court today, the timing of our latest alumni spotlight on Kevin Cullen, class of ‘81, is perfect. The Globe columnist co-authored a book on the notorious South Boston gangster.
“I have a contrary view on a lot of things,” Cullen told junior Aviva Luttrell. “I’m not as intrigued with talking to the richest guy or the smartest guy or the most famous person. I’m much more interested in ordinary people. If Heidi Klum came in tomorrow and somebody said they’d give me an exclusive interview with her, I’d say ‘no thanks.’”
