A number of the comments here reflect what surveys show---that many people, particularly young people, see nothing wrong with cheating.

The article states that none of this will happen soon. Some has been planned, but suspended due to insufficient funding. Meanwhile: #1: Yesterday (Sunday) the T was running single car trolleys on the more »

For some people this discovery won't matter one lick. Those are the people for whom Gary Larsen ("The Far Side") wrote a cartoon in which some scientists stand in front of a board of complex equation more »

For me the most fascinating thing about the history of the Gays wanting to March in this parade is how the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court ruled in favor of the gays groups. The parade organizers more »

There are a quite a few places on Rte 9 eastbound where one can make a legal left turn/u-turn with a green arrow to change direction to westbound. Quite often I've seen [from another car] or experien more »

Given the obvi-ism that most of those 200 people were among the 40% who voted no, I hope no one interprets this demonstration as a sign that most citizens of Revere have changed their minds.

You forgot: Don't yell into the phone so EVERYONE else in the office can hear you!
In today's open office environments, this is #1 on my list.

I recall seeing a sign on VFW Parkway (or another): "Lights timed to require frequent stops". I think the same thing has been done on Rte 9. It really is frustrating to sit at a red light, advance o more »

Instead of attacking the author, how about logically trying to overcome the objections raised in the article?

I react to this with emotion and not intellect. The South has never forgiven the North for what they call "The War of Northern Aggression". I have not forgiven many Southerners for their "Save oil; Fr more »

All the people who gave a thumbs down to RedJanitor's accurate comment should google Real ID and visit the TSA web site. If our state does indeed pass this bill, then it is possible later this year yo more »

if Massachusetts passes such a law, then our MA drivers licenses might not be accepted by the TSA at the airport later this year, as the licenses would not be Real-ID compliant. Google Real ID and c more »

I appreciate the replies correcting me. I amend my earlier comment to say "Chet comes across fine in this obit/article. I love the last paragraph . It shows the wisdom he gained through the years. T more »

Chet comes across fine in this obit/article, until the last paragraph. Then it shows how he had changed over the years.
It also shows why America adored Walter Cronkite.

This happened to a friend of mine who lives in North Grafton. The store he went to was not the one in or near North Grafton, but one further away. He went to another Walgreens store closer to North G more »

In 1989 front-liners Andre Tippett, Ronnie Lippett and Garin Veris all suffered season-ending injuries in the preseason finale. The coaches, the organization, and the fans all accepted that the season more »

I grew up in Neponset, technically still part of Dorchester. I used to ride my bike around Ashmont, Fields Corner, Codman Square, and more. I think if I saw the French consul general I would salute more »

I agree with everything you write, but shall point out FANaticS tend to think by a sports team winning, they establish the superiority of their city. Through the years, the Globe has published, just b more »

The first time you got to the Denver airport, you see this circus tent and wonder where the terminals are.

For once, I actually agree with Muddy. I think the idea of Boston hosting the Olympics is one of the stupidest ideas ever. I wish this article had mentioned why Denver backed out. I recall it wasn't D more »

Christie allegedly did it because the Mayor did not endorse him, not because of the way anyone voted.

It used to be a politician or other public figure was embarrassed by scandals; now his "brand" is hurt. I see online articles and even books at stores about promoting your "personal brand". I realize more »

I have friends in Fort Lee. They tell me this has been suspected for weeks, if not months. And many people there have suspected Christie all along.
