    I just want to affirm the good common sense of "Who Cares 1940". The lines for legislators should be especially clear: No favored treatment in exchange for your official acts. Period. No license plate more »

    Appalling, but not surprising, that GOP puts additional tax breaks for the rich ahead of extending unemployment benefits for the people who lost their jobs because of the greed and selfishness of the more »

    Republicans are refusing to do anything until rich people get more tax breaks. Super. I am pretty sure that's not what people want. But, you get what you vote for, and I sure hope the folks who voted more »

    By the way -- one role of the courts is to protect minorities from the tyranny of the majority. We should all be very grateful for that because you never know when you might be in the minority and nee more »

    Least surprising news of the day. more »

    Some of the comments here are fairly shocking. People who think poor people are lazy have probably never been poor themselves. Life is vastly more challenging when you are poor. It infuriates me that more »

    I'd love to have Filene's Basement come back, plus a Target, a real grocery store and some kind of indoor recreation -- skating? an entertainment place like Jillians? -- but only if the police presenc more »

    As I understand it, the banks are doing this not to maintain their solvency, but to maintain their profits. And, what do they do with their fat profits? They pay their executives, the folks who nearly more »

    Missing a soccer game may be a big deal to some, but missing the point that humiliating people for laughs and team building is wrong is a much, much, much bigger deal. How these kids did not recognize more »

    Not surprising that some of the biggest property owners are refusing to buy into an effort that will help the whole community. Not surprising that they want to be free riders on the efforts and money more »

    Astonishing that anyone thinks it's okay to knock down a house because of a failure to compromise. What an ugly society we live in. The Sheys should be terribly, terribly ashamed of themselves. The wa more »

    First the Globe fell all over itself promoting Scott Brown in January. Now this. Is it misogyny or is it something about Martha Coakley? If it's the former, c'mon boys, new century and all. If it's th more »

    Let's be real. The Republicans have been holding up hundreds of appointments. Because of their reflexive "no" to the Obama administration on everything, they simply have no credibility when they criti more »

    I will gladly pay more for cleaner energy. It's good for the environment and it's patriotic (lessens our dependence on foreign oil, etc.) Frankly, I am appalled by the short-term selfishness of people more »

    The Legislature needs to keep its hands off the Judiciary. It's bad in principle and bad in practice. While they're at it, they should also fund it properly. We're talking about the administration of more »

    Well said! The firefighters absurd greed and refusal to do the right thing should not be rewarded. How I wish they were ashamed of themselves and would voluntarily step back and accept something more more »

    Thank you for a lovely story. Ignore the people who don't understand that part of a newspaper's mission is to tell such lovely stories. And to share reviews of movies and restaurants. And to provide s more »

    The firefighters should be deeply, deeply ashamed of themselves. The reason why the story keeps landing on the front page is because of the widespread and rightful outrage at the firefighters' greed. more »

    Not sure why so many people are willing to cut little inroads into constitutional rights. We know that people talk after Miranda rights are read. We know that torture doesn't work at all. What's the p more »

    Let's remember some key facts: Illegal immigration is down in Arizona and illegal immigrants pay more in taxes than they receive in services. So, really, why did they need to pass this law? Because so more »

    Betty White deserves every bit of this massive devotion. She's endearing, inspiring and so very, very funny. more »

    Unless there's evidence that the woman was unqualified, did not deserve her job or her severance, this is much ado about something very, very common -- people getting involved with coworkers. It happe more »
