I'm glad you mentioned Uber Black Car. I wish the media would distinguish between UberX and Uber's other services. I don't care for UberX, yet Uber Black Car drivers are insured and have livery plates more »

I am sad to learn that he died of his injuries. My thoughts are with his loved ones as well as with the train operator. more »

Nobody has pointed this out yet, so I will. Excuse the grammar police, yet a news organization should know a little something about adverbs. "...reminder to drive safe..." should be "reminder to drive more »

Oh, never mind. I see now that it's a quality issue. Still, BDC, how about some more detail? I'm tired of these so-called stories that are not much more than a couple of Tweets.

The article fails to mentions the reason that "several bars (are) saying no to green beer." Are we supposed to guess?

My son is a special education student who goes to a school on the South Shore. If you would care to walk him there and back, go right ahead.

My son's driver's trick this morning was to show up ten minutes early, wait for about a minute, and then start to leave. Had it not been for the intervention of one of our neighbors, my son would not more »

Our son goes to a school for students with special needs that is located in another district. BPS is responsible for transportation. We have no way to get him there, so he stayed home (as did I).

How about opening this story up to those affected most by it, for whom a subscription is not in the budget?

We visited an Ice Bar in Stockholm earlier this week and loved it. I hope the concept works as well here. The Ice Bar in Stockholm is cooled to -5C (23F), so it is bearable. At current exchange rates, more »

Well put, Drewchild.

Aside being against the law, you may be passing up a fantastic worker. How do you know that a 58-year-old won't take a lower salary? It's a heck of a lot more than unemployment pays, for those lucky e more »

Then at least call me for an interview so that I can demonstrate that my skills and training are up-to-date. During the interview, ask me for an example or two that describe how I've been adaptable to more »

Please don't paint us with a broad brush. Recent studies show that trailing edge Boomers (those born 1955-1964) expect to work until at least 70. And, there is no guarantee that a 25-year-old will sti more »

HarryRPitts raises a good point. The way I've been told to handle it is to omit the years I earned my BA and MS and to have my job history go back 15 years on the resume. (Not much before that might b more »

I am 50, unemployed for a year after my job in financial services vanished. I do not need medical insurance -- I have coverage through my husband's job. It's sad that I have to say that right off the more »

"I am far from a gun nut, I just do not want the globe to encourage copycats by giving publicity to the mass murderer."
I agree completely, Anne.

"Cloak of ignorance?" No, that's not it at all. All I'm saying is that we need to grieve for the community. In time, we can learn more about the shooter. But, it's too soon.

Let's not waste space on this coward, please. Two dozen elementary school kids and adults lost their lives today; many others traumatized. Can't we just focus on the community, please? Please?

I agree with EveryNameTaken. I only found out about this when I did my usual, weekly check of my profile visibility to the public. My email address had been hidden, and only friends/friends-of-friends more »
