You grossly undervalue Gorbachev's role and overvalue Reagan's and the Pope's. I lived it, and it was clear who was the mover in chief.

No, it didn't, because the cop had no cause to shoot the unarmed kid. Unless you consider cigar theft a capital crime.

Where is Price Chopper on that list?

Now here's a faith story worth something. Anglicans, patting yourselves on the back for finally admitting women to the episcopacy, take note. Now take off your vestments and roll up your sleeves in th more »

Wrong. This is the church responding at its usual stodgy behind-the-times pace, but still responding, finally, to what the modern world requires of it in order to maintain a measure of credibility and more »

On the other hand, it's probable that the "Lutheran" in the name has been as irrelevant to the people served by this noble organization as the new name will be. What matters to refugees and children a more »

Does the article have a byline? more »

Paragraph 12: "restating" should be "restarting" peace negotiations. Great article, Mr. Allen, about a great man. more »

Terrific piece. Now write a comparable rave for "Call the Midwife," which leaves Downton in the dust. more »

Thank you, Ms, English, for continuing to tell this story of "lost children" who have, despite unspeakable trauma, been "found." Thirteen years ago, when the first of 45 Sudanese youngsters arrived more »

Actually, Wegman's does do circulars. I get them in the mail. I'm near the Wegman's in Northborough. And, yes, the Bounty paper towels are the same, but that's about where the similarity to other sup more »

The operative word is in the first paragraph: the Pap smear is "cheaper." I would add "easier." I looked for some figures in the article documenting how much money this new test would make for Roch more »

This is just bad journalism. No one unfamiliar with various forms of Christian worship would have a clue as to what you're describing. A "before and after" scenario would have helped. What was the more »

Oh what nonsense! The biggest most elaborate and ostentatious church in any NE village, town or city is Roman Catholic.

I think you have it turned around: most of the hateful speech and demonizing is directed by the anti-abortion folks at the pro-choice folks. Just read the signs carried by demonstrators who picket wo more »

It's James Carroll, and the article in The New Yorker is a must read for anyone intrigued by Pope Francis. Carroll is a progressive Catholic and no doubt rejoices in this papacy -- thus far. But he more »

Twenty-seven years ago, when my youngest child was an infant, he had a scary reaction to his first DPT shot: a high fever, restlessness, crossed eyes, a high keening cry. His pediatrician in the milit more »

I remember the first time I shopped at a Market Basket -- on route 126 in Hopkinton. It was immediately clear that it was the super market of choice for low income families, which at that time include more »

How very cool! He brings the church into the world, and in so doing, brings the world into the church.

Dare we look forward to the day when "atheism" is no longer a dirty word but simply a word that describes someone's personal world- or life-view? A word not freighted with negative connotations and v more »
