    The article claimed to present a list of the most depressing songs of all time. I guess time didn't start until the last third of the 20th century.

    I'm surprised that THE LITTLE DRUMMER BOY didn't make the list.  I'm not a Christian, and the this song always chokes me up when I hear it.  The animated movie is quite touching. I also very much enjo more »

    This reminisence about The Coffee Pot struck me as nothing more than a pot boiler. more »

    I am a Southern California boy who has lived in San Diego County most of my 58 years. I had never encountered the word "jimmie" for chocolate ice cream sprinkles until I read this article. I know that more »

    I would have placed THE TWILIGHT ZONE at the number one spot with THE OUTER LIMITS in the number two spot.  To have placed something like XENA  ahead of THE OUTER LIMITS is absurd. The imaginative ski more »

    I think that this is a great program. I know one Bangledeshi immigrant who came to the United States through this lottery. When I met him he had no family in the United States. He had no higher educat more »

    Mr. Carroll wrote: "...the false dichotomy in Catholic theology between 'merely' symbolic and 'actual' presence of Jesus in the Eucharist." Then he wrote: 'To denigrate symbolic expression with adject more »

    This article really made me hungry. But as came to its conclusion, i had to wonder whether Ms. English's substitution of Greek yogurt for riccota cheese for her parfait was merely fortuitous or was fo more »

    Even more exciting to me is discovering a house which an author actually describes in one of his novels. In the mid-80s I was a graduate student in New York City. I shared an apartment with three othe more »

    I lived and worked for three years in Guayaquil, Ecuador. I very much appreciated this article. The story of the physicians, surgeons, nurses, and all attening staff who go to Quito to help people suf more »

    I very much enjoyed this essay. I was a student of Russian at Leningrad State University in 1976. I haven't visited the Soviet Union or Ruussia since. The essay was truthful and brought back fond memo more »

    I enjoyed your story. Too bad you couldn't provide us more pictures: I would have loved seeing photos of the forest, the trail, and Seal Cove. Inasmuch as I enjoy looking at maps, I regret that your s more »

    Well, my family has lived in the same house in Carlsbad since 1956. I would recommend Rancho Valencia which is my favorite eating establishment in San Diego County. It's in Rancho Santa Fe and about a more »

    I'm surprised that anyone would brew a pot of coffee, drink a cup or two, and then throw the rest away. Every other day I brew about a dozen cups of coffee in my stainless steel drip coffee pot that I more »

    I enjoyed the article very much. It sounds like a wonderful experience. I personally enjoy long distance bus travel. I think that it's an even better means of seeing the country go by. And you can bet more »

    I had to stop and think when I read THE GLOBE's description of Senator Brown as "Mr. 41." I was born in San Diego and grew up there. Anyway, in Mexican culture the number "41" signifies that a guy is more »

    It seems rather silly to me to crticize a person for posing a legitimate question. I would like to know whether an individual who worked for the C.I.A. as its expert on al-Qaeda knows Arabic. Such inf more »

    If the C.I.A. didn't vet Ahmed Chalabi, it certainly gave his organization, the Iraqi National Congress, money. No one has yet corroborated here whether Michael Scheurer knows Arabic. He's supposed to more »

    So, does anyone know whether Michael Scheurer knows Arabic? I do believe that at one time the C.I.A. vetted Chalabi as a good candidate for Iraqi leadership. And I think that we pretty much know now t more »

    I've observed that Michael Scheuer's name has come up as an expert on Osama bin-Laden. can anyone explain how Scheurer developed this expertise? I looked up his biography on Wikopedia. He has a Ph.D. more »

    I found movies like THE PATRIOT and BRAVEHEART (which i could not endure to the end) extremely anglophobic. I've never seen GALLIPOLI, but i can imagine that it's none too complimentary toward the Eng more »

    Well said, BOSTON GLOBE.

    Unsolicited helpful hints are not especially helpful. I would describe them as meddlesome.
