About Me: I lived in metro Boston for 25 years and summered in Scituate for over 20, as well.
Emmanuel and Boston College degrees.
Have currently 11 inside cats, taken from the street, feed 5 ferals whom I trapped, neutered and returned and they come every day for breakfast and supper, and we have 6 insulated feral cat shelters on our property which some use every day. We also had 5 dogs, one at a time, all from shelters, whom we adopted and they are all in heaven now.
Retired, married and am now 65 years old. My husband is wonderfully supportive of what I (we)do and is very helpful.
Consider Boston to be H-O-M-E. Not a lover of NYC, where we live in a suburb style house. Rarely go to Manhattan even though it's close by! What for?

Well, I went to a public elementary (kind) but Catholic H.S. (some nuns were mean, some were extremely kind) and a Catholic college founded and taught in large part by nuns (extraordinarily kind, wond more »

How ironic. Here we have a story about a vicious attack on a sad, homeless man by alleged perps aged early 20's, an act of hatred if there every was one, and what do we get? Several hateful and insu more »

Oh, please. Cheap shot. It has nothing to do with Catholic teaching. It's our world today. And the person. Say that about Jewish or Muslim teachings and see the reaction you will get. I am not more »

Too often a college's rep is tied to $$. People equate power with achievement. I have a grad degree from BC and a brother with a B.A. from B.C. by the way. more »

This has nothing to do with a Catholic education, jpn1. I am not a practicing Catholic but I resent your stupid remark anyway. It has to do with the person. Catholics do not teach this kind of thin more »

user - what a loser thing to say. Here we have a story about violence and you write a violent remark. I would agree with it if it was in defense of the victim, but I don't hear from you that you are more »

I mean to say that a "master's lite" is not even good enough. An MSW ought to be demanded for employment, period. End of story. more »

I don't know what the quality of the staff at DCF is like these days. I think that you ought to have a Master of Social Work degree, not just a B.A. or a "master's lite" one year counseling degree, i more »

Rileysdad, The founders had no idea that America would top 300 million people. How can you compare the size of government and the number of laws, bylaws and committees. I am sympathetic to your fee more »

Well, your suggestions being followed through would mean that those who thought up such cruel and inhumane and abusive procedures would have to stop thinking of these women and their babies as less th more »

Although the average Catholic is aware of this, St. Thomas More was "involved directly" in the burning of heretics at the stake, yet the Catholic Church has never recinded his sainthood status. So, we more »

What total morons decided ever to have women in labor shackled? I know it has been going on, just as a lot of other inhumane practices have been going on in our country. Did it every occur, also, wh more »

Thank you, Bendogger, for writing that. My comment will anger many, but here it is: It is a fool's journey to travel to Afghanistan to an illegal war action that should have never taken place. Why more »

Leo, What did people write - the ones who were blocked? I am fascinated.
