    Good piece except... should read "Primary politics are different FROM general-election politics."

    Michael - should read "therein lay the frustration", not "lied". Otherwise, good piece.

    Christine: I never said that false accusers were "pouring out of the woodwork" - I merely acknowledge that they must exist, something that Mr. Garabedian seems incapable of admitting. I'm sorry for wh more »

    Christinehickey: No doubt that many priests were predators and were enabled by the hierarchy for years, but is it so far out of the realm of possibility that there have been so-called "victims" lookin more »

    To Globull: The Globe performed an invaluable service in helping to uncover this scourge and the efforts to keep it quiet. Are you saying it would have been better if everything remained as it was bac more »

    Boogsie - you don't fix a train wreck eight years in the making overnight, as all righties have seem to have demanded of this president. It will be a long recovery - witness the Great Depression. And more »

    Boogsie, worst president in history?? Check the state of the economy and the deficit in January of 2001 when W took office, and then again when he left in Jan. 2009. Nuff said. more »

    11/6/2012: Your posts this morning are hilarious since they are so sadly lacking in reality. The current field of GOP candidates is the weakest I've ever seen, and the party itself is hopelessly fract more »

    Totally agree with phonyuser - the Tea-Partiers don't understand that their idea of the perfect candidate (Paul, Palin, Trump, Bachmann,etc.) won't stand a chance against Obama. American voters have a more »

    Councilor Iannella - That would be, "Kick him or her out of office." more »

    The simple fact is that the days of needing multiple Catholic Churches within a small geographic area are long-gone. The ideal is, and should be, fewer places of worship with larger congregations. I u more »

    After attending last night's concert, I was struck by both the wonderful and generous performances given by Kissin (two concertos and encores) and the palpable excitement not often felt at Symphony Ha more »

    Oscar - "Every state claims that the Tea Party is irrlelvant" - the T.P.'s strength is in the South and West mostly, with perhaps pockets of influence elsewhere. But definitely not here! You're delusi more »

    Totally agree with chaco52 - can we please acknowledge the myth that the Tea Party had anything to do with Sen. Brown's election? The T.P is irrelevant in this state...always has been! So those of you more »

    Kai - I'm truly sorry for what happened to you and completely understand your anger. What those priests did, along with the cover-up by the hierarchy, was beyond disgusting. My only point is that the more »

    Scoogy... Right,you wish for the "slow death" of the largest charitable organization, probably in the world. Even wih its flaws, the RCC is still a force for much good. Like typical right-wing haters, more »

    Hey Mary - why don't you take your hate to the Herald. Both Shrivers led full, accomplished lives, doing so much for those less fortunate. How on earth does that bring out your spite and bitterness? W more »

    Brazair: the Globe came out with their Spotlight story last May! It's the independent investigation by Paul Ware that was just released, unfortunately after the election. You Globe haters need to get more »

  • Posted 11/20/2010 09:18:43 EST

    And one other thing: we voters are complicit in this scandal by repeatedly re-electing those who perpetuate this kind of corruption. Somehow we are outraged at the actions of the Legislature, but we c more »

    Liquidgee - I'm glad you at least recognize her achievement. My comment was more directed to the "What's in it for me" cynics. I understand your feeling about that kind of money NOT going into cancer, more »

    I admit I read this feel-good story thinking it would probably incite a torrent of negative comments. Sadly, I was right. A woman works hard and achieves something singular and all the nitwits are the more »

    Dan, you're all over the place here. First, you say Damon is an idiot for staying with the Tigers and refusing to come here to join a pennant race. Then, you rip the Sox for not offering enough back i more »

    Amalie - I would have included Moyer's age (47) when drawing the comparison between him and Wakefield, identified the player who went on the D.L. yesterday, and mentioned Pedroia's injury. You usually more »

    It's funny - the Tea-partiers scream about getting government out of our lives until disasters like Katrina, the BP spill, and the financial meltdown, and then they're screaming for the gov't. to step more »
