I'm looking forward to Pepe's coming to town! They make a great pizza! It's all about the coal-fired oven. Their presence will spark competition and hopefully boost the quality of pizza in the entire more »

If I were in charge of the MBTA I would ditch the current provider (MBCR) and switch to Keolis. It's time for a change. This is one of those instances where complacency by MBCR has led to poor service more »

If there is to be a casino in Massachusetts, Suffolk Downs is the best location. It has a subway stop and it's very close to the airport. This will attract a high percentage of tourists and also make more »

Republicans should be hanging their heads in shame for the way their party has played politics with people's health insurance. Healthcare is the NUMBER ONE issue for so many people, and GOP governors more »

Clark will do well representing the 5th Congressional District. She was the right choice to represent such a great region. The 5th is packed with so many great places to live. Something the Republican more »

Wing-Righter, we can't afford not to. I used to live in Texas, and I can tell you first hand that they have a singular goal of stealing jobs and people from all states, especially northeastern states more »

If Clark is from Melrose she must know how badly the Boston area needs more funding to improve public transit, roads and bridges. If there is one issue to focus on in Washington, this is a great one! more »

Given the way the national GOP is structured, it would be crazy for Massachusetts to elect a Republican to Congress. The power base of the GOP is centered in Texas and southern states. The national GO more »

Addivinola doesn't live in the 5th Congressional District. He lives in Boston. Why would he expect to win?

The elephant in the room that nobody talks about: are the Boston public schools better now than they were 20 years ago?

I don't want to be a nitpicker, but Addivinola doesn't live in the 5th Congressional District. He lives in Boston.

If there is to be a casino in Massachusetts, let it be in as close to the airport and the subway lines as possible. Therefore, I would choose Suffolk Downs as the best option. Having it near the airp more »

Your facts are wrong. Healthcare costs have always been high in Massachusetts, but not 2 or 3 times higher than other states. See WSJ link below. Other northeastern states have high per-capita spendin more »

Was Mitt Romney right? What a ridiculous question. Of course not. The Massachusetts model can work in all 50 states if given enough time. Let's not forget that Mitt Romney left office before the Mass more »

To answer the question of whether taxpayers benefit from increased public transit, the answer is a resounding YES. The more cars we can pull off the roads improves the commute for others. But even wel more »

This is welcome news. But really it's just window dressing. The lack of significant improvements to the transportation systems will be the blotch on this governor's record. Traffic is horrendous durin more »

The MBTA is an incredible asset to this region. For a number of years I enjoyed living in a "boom" city in the southwest, but one of the biggest things missing was a subway system. For metro Boston to more »

Most of the blame for weak security on 9/11 belongs with the Bush Administration. They had advance warning of the plot but failed to take appropriate action. That said, we can't really hold George W. more »

I lost interest in professional sports 20 years ago. A free hot dog won't get me back. The players and owners make millions per year off the backs of fans and in some cases taxpayers in the form of ta more »

It would also be very useful to have round-the-clock service on the Blue Line for getting to and from the airport. Currently, grabbing an early-morning flight is not possible by way of the T.

If a casino is approved at Suffolk Downs, then most definitely there should be round-the-clock service on the Blue Line and possibly other lines as well. In fact, maybe the casino could chip in a litt more »

Expand the T and raise the gas tax. First thing to expand is parking at outer T stations like Oak Grove. Impossibe to find parking at Oak Grove after 7 a.m. Second thing is to create more bus routes d more »
