    Two things: 1. It's possible to microwave metal without sparking. Look inside your microwave popcorn bag sometime. Depending on the details of thickness and geometry, you can get lots of sparks or you more »

    The GOP promised me that the market had already recovered and that there was no such thing as global warming. So I suppose reading about the worst housing market in 14 years while the temperature hits more »

    Why do I get the feeling that we're being "had" by both sides? Again? Because: Just last winter we were told, again and again, how the US Government was "about to shut down" if a budget wasn't passed. more »

    Amazing. All this finger pointing at & by the right and the left, but not one person wants to attack the rampant fraud in Medicare & Medicaid? As 60 minutes put it: "In fact, Medicare fraud - estimate more »

    Meahwhile, Ian Anderson was doing an excellent job rocking the Lowell Auditorium on the same evening, but not one word mentioned in the Globe.

    P.S. Ian's diction is still good. ;-)

    Two comments: 1. Be very careful about changing what's allowed and what limits are changed. That means not only what limits are changed, but what bycatch effects those changes could cause. Letting a s more »

    We're not hip! Huzzah! Hip/trendy/ephemeral. That's not what Boston's ever been about. Hip is the social equivalent to a sugar rush; sweet, but brief with a crash at the end. Boston's more like a good more »

    This is their second attempt at appealing to a younger audience. The last time was about 25 years ago and they made the mistake of adding new clothes for the younger customers while dropping clothes t more »

    That's sad, but at least ABE went while doing something useful! I brought those big red shells down to WHOI from MIT in the middle of January all those years ago. They stuck out of the car so I had to more »

    Steve-1950 nailed it in one. Congress is demanding results while refusing to commit to funding. Unfunded mandates is sooo last administration. Realism may not make sexy headlines, but it sure beats li more »

    This whole debate over which ineffective/untrustworthy party is better than the other is pointless. As long as the Speaker of the House continues to control too much power relative to the rest of the more »

    And this has to be an either/or issue....why? What ever happened to cooperation? more »

    Is Arlington at the levy limit or the levy ceiling? If the town is not at the ceiling then the override is not "putting the groceries on the credit card." So without knowing the answer to that, it's n more »

    Remember Mark Twain: Lies, Damned Lies, and Statistics. Lumping all graduate degrees together isn't going to tell you anything useful... more »

    The "no coat" issue is a waste of time. How would anyone at the airport know if he had a coat or not? They only know now because they arrested him and collected his belongings. Also, security screenin more »

    P.S. Perhaps the most useful metric is to track where the students, both American and international, wind up after they leave school. Where are they and what are they doing in 2 years? 5 years? 15 yea more »

    The article may have made another point entirely without knowing it. Specifically, even our educators' inability to apply proper regimen to a theory before coming to a conclusion. In this case the aut more »

    Our economy is driven by consumption. Which is driven by advertising. Which depends on getting attention. And the easiest way to get attention is to do something "shocking." Ashley Dupre getting a col more »

    LOL! A light-filled building housing students trying to see their computer screens. I wish I owned the eye-drop concession for that place! And I'm sure MIT is looking forward to the the summertime air more »

    The authors call that ominous? Are you kidding? 35 million out of a population of over 6.9 billion (latest estimate). That's about a half of one percent! The world has much larger medical problems, th more »

    As long as parents view schools as a place to dump the kids for a few hours, things won't ever improve. Schools succeed when the people who depend on them place value in them. That means parents, teac more »

    One of the great advantages to being a 21st century Republican is the ability to ignore reality and substitute it with whatever you want. Thank you Karl Rove. more »

    Thanks for the review! History has shown that I and my friends are likely to enjoy anything Ty pans, so we're definitely going to be seeing this one! I don't need a reviewer I agree with, just one who more »

    This feels like a solution looking for a problem. It adds some complexity to your "phone life", mimics the call-through feature which has been around since the 1980's and (as others already pointed ou more »

    I don't look for agreement between myself and a reviewer, just consistency on the part of a reviewer so I have a benchmark. And if it's fantasy, Sci-Fi or Action and Ty hates it, then I know it's goin more »
