About Me: A retired guy in the suburbs trying to stay a few steps ahead of whatever might be after me.
Posted 04/16/2014 12:21:16 EDT
A freak accident followed by an unfortunate judgement call by the caregivers. Welcome to the nightmare of our current system of playing the blame game.

I remember the "Scollay Under" sign. I think the subway fare was 20 cents the last time I saw it. Orient Heights was the last stop outbound before the extension to Revere.

Can't everyone just lighten up a bit?

Back in the 70s subway fares were 25 cents with "dime time" during mid-day hours. Parking in a T lot was less than a dollar at most areas. When I hit 65 in 2002 a senior pass got me on the subway for more »

Kind of an arrogant, insensitive move by the T. I had heard nothing about it until the last moment. No consideration at all for those inconvenienced by loss of the easy connection between the blue and more »

He sounds like a guy that gets it. Best of luck to him.

Letting the Fish get a first down on 4th and 5 was the real killer. Also, very poor tackling based on my flat screen views from a seat at home. The "D" did not come through with the game on the line. more »

The senior fare for the subway is now 4 times higher than it was my first year of eligibility. Way to go T!

Why not simply make crashing into a "defenseless player" illegal, i.e., if the catcher is looking the other way or reaching for an incoming throw, etc.? If the ball has arrived before the runner and t more »

Having to venture into Boston is a headache. The traffic, congestion, stress, lack of parking and dealing with the T are just some of the problems to be avoided if at all possible. The necessity of a more »

Message to NBA. Figure out how to create at least the semblance of parity or count me not interested. A few elite teams playing lots of pinatas not a good business model. I wonder what's on the DIY Ch more »

What a joke. That's now three recent losses, counting the Baltimore non field goal called good last year, in which the refs have hosed the Patriots with terrible calls resulting in a loss. Is this som more »

Baseball is more based on tradition than any of the other major sports. The game's format of today is totally different from that of the decades which laid the treasured foundations. Night games are t more »

Well said Mr. K. You are truly one of us and know the drill. This is our bleepin' city and if you don't like it.....................well, you know.

King's "B" game better than most at their "A." Looking forward to a good read like one only SK can provide. I started with "Salem's Lot" many years ago and have rarely been disappointed since. I wonde more »

What ever happened to the donuts? This also true of Dunkin'. They are now taking a back seat to all of these other menu items that seem to keep getting more exotic. I can no longer find many donut typ more »

No matter how much experience sports front office and coaching personnel have in evaluating talent the final decisions boil down to "luck."

Too bad that the change in ownership at the Globe now becomes a factor that the reader must consider when reading anything about the Red Sox in that worthy newspaper. I am a Red Sox lifer who finds it more »

What a disappointing road trip. Makes me wonder if this team is worth any kind of time or emotional investment on my part. My hopes were that they would come back with 3 wins in Houston and at least 2 more »

That Saturday night loss was hard to swallow. They let Pap go and have likely spent just as much ever since in time money and effort trying to replace him as it would have cost to keep him. The Sox fr more »

There's no crying in hockey. Tough luck, move on and hope for a better result next year. Thanks B's for the great year!

We might as well hope for the return of 25 cent hot dogs or 50 cent bleacher tickets as hope for speedier baseball games. I think it's the money. Baseball players used to be paid 2 or 3 times more tha more »

Iggy and Nava making the front office look bad in a nice way. Life is good.
