It appears that satire (to which it seems this song would apply, since it's kind of mocking the original song) is protected under fair use laws, though not as universally as parodies, which would be m more »

What's the difference between this and a Weird Al song? They're both used to make money and they both use the same tune but change the words. If Weird Al recorded this exact song, and the toy company more »

I am outraged! This was so important to me! My life has no meaning! /s

Just because there's some progress doesn't mean the job is done.

Back-in diagonal spaces are safer, and easier to park in, than parallel spaces... Just gotta get used to them! And they're safer than front-in spaces, since it's way easier to exit the space without h more »

This is a good move - the colossal stadium may have been cool for the Olympics, but the city has a life beyond the Olympics. It's important not to destroy a city's image and personality for a 2-week e more »

To Boston.com: "cyclist" means someone riding a bicycle, not a motorcyclist. Kind of a misleading headline.

Actually, the Globe's headline was "Titanic Hits Iceberg, 1500 Die". http://www.rarusnet.com/images/0-9/NM000267_001.JPG Next time, use a historical event that predates the Globe's existence if you wa more »

Kids get injured. It happens. Kids got injured 50 years ago and 100 years ago and 1000 years ago. If we're trying to prevent kids from getting injured, why not ban them from riding their bikes or cros more »

September interleague exists because it has to. There are an odd number of teams in each league. This is just how the schedule fell. 10 out of 15 games being between divisional rivals is (almost) the more »

Really. West Broadway has 17' travel lanes. Highways have 12' travel lanes. Many urban streets have 10' travel lanes. 7 extra feet is a TON of room. And extra space only encourages illegal activity li more »

Even if it's one more cyclist and one fewer driver, how is that a worse situation for anyone aside from the double parkers?
Posted 08/21/2013 03:15:14 EDT
Yes, it keeps cars in their place rather than driving all over their absurdly wide area. Bikes know where they belong and cars know where they belong. I can't speak for the 4th Street bridge, but the more »

West Broadway is super wide --travel lanes are 17' or more (not including parking) in most areas. 11 foot lanes on city streets are more than sufficient. The extra space is going to be used, either b more »

sticksnstones, this is just one more thing. You don't think the team endorsed the hell out of this? If Fenway is a sanctuary/museum/cathedral/whatever we're supposed to think it is, why can this dope more »

Pink hat? This man is a hero. Pink hats came around when it was "cool" to like the Sox (read: when they started winning titles). And they're the only ones going to games now.

This is an embarrassment. This song is NOT catchy; the lyrics sound like they could have been written by a 2nd grader. If it wasn't about Fenway this song would not be considered listenable by anyone. more »

People in California DO subsidize red states. In fact, BLUE states tend to pay more in taxes than they receive in federal aid, where RED states tend to pay LESS in taxes than they receive (with some e more »

Guess where the educated workforce lives (disproportionately)? Boston, Cambridge and Somerville. What do they have in common? All accessible to transit, no car necessary.

I pay for the Pike with my taxes and excise tax, and I don't drive. I'd prefer if all that money went to the T, but it doesn't.
Posted 01/15/2013 10:06:17 EST
To those saying they don't want to pay for transit because they don't use it-- I pay for highway maintenance in my taxes and I don't own a car. And I can't even get a freaking bike lane put in. So you more »

Transit subsidizes the T. If everyone who used the T to get to work got into a car, game over. Transit is also healthier (you walk more), saves the user money (people who commute from suburbs pay more more »
