    How about too bad no one took his cries for help seriously? Or too bad no one paid attention to what was happening in his life and intervened? Those who are serious about committin suicide will find a more »

    Seriously? First of all, the 5 year old didn't violate the policy. He probably can neither read nor fully comprehend the language of the policy. The parent who allowed him to wear something that it is more »

    poppymal - good thing the residents of communities like Medford and Somerville don't share that cynicsm. They've done a pretty good job of "coming back" and none moreso than Somerville which, 15 years more »

    So by your census of 5 houses, both owner and tenant occupied, with only one of those 5 homes being an offender (and it sounds like at least one tenant in said home was humbled by your education), we more »

    Ugh. more »

    voteforme: I had a long rant typed out, but you know what? Forget it. Instead, I'll say this to you and 200UnpleasantSt: Until all of the information is reported, why don't the two of you just stop. I more »

    That's it. I'm sick to death of the way that the most vocal citizenry is the last to take practical action - and the first to blame everyone else "not from here". I've said it before and I'll say it a more »

    House - Yeah, I drive through Arlington each day on my way to work. In fact, I drive through the projects there...which is usually cleaner than most of the Malden streets around us. I know that I pick more »

    ^^^ Yup. I see these upstanding parents' kids tossing their trash all over the playgrounds too; middle/upper-middle class mums leaving water bottles behind when they take their kids home; home owners more »

    Amen. My daughter remarks daily how "people are wude - lookit dis trash, mummy!" Sometimes she just calls them yucky. And yeah. I stepped in a pile running on Monday night. I have to look down when I more »

    I echo the sentiments of those who posted here - and I would also like to add that if these hotspots had been young women in bikins, NO ONE would be complaining in the least. The moral outrage over th more »

    Underwhere69 - So you're fine with allowing a baby to be placed on a bed, in a crackhouse, with a loaded weapon directly underneath the mattress? Trigger pull not withstanding, even I'm not OK with th more »

    jkziggy: Westover is overflowing. Maybe you should take a look out there some time. As for Hanscom, yes. I work here. Someone else already put it far nicer than I would in terms of what this base does more »

    Justin - OK. I see your point, and yet...Fenway keeps filling seats and selling out games. I get a mil discount to Fenway and I forget the prices of tix though, I'll grant that. more »

    In Response to Re: New baseball stadium: Counterpoint - Does it matter if it can attract large amount of people to the point of being our anchor?  Criticize it as a suburban thing if you must, but if more »

    One point - Fenway Park is part of the history of Boston and hosts a major league team. Minor league parks are most definitively a suburban phenomena. more »

    Hm. I'm sorry. What's wrong with Medford? And Revere actually has more to recommend it than Malden does these days. They've significantly cleaned up their waterfront and we started spending weekends t more »

  • Posted 02/09/2012 12:24:30 EST

    Seriously?! Look. Fenway is a mere T ride away and frankly, if I'm going to go to a ball game (which is unlikely to begin with), I'm going to see the Sox play and THEN I'm going to go out and have my more »

    @anotherman - It was hard. On the one hand, I try to instill a sense of compassion in my child. On the other, I have almost no compassion anymore for the drugged out zombies in Malden that we see on a more »

    @anotherman - I forgot to mention that this scene played out on a Tuesday afternoon at 3:30pm after I was returning from taking one of our cats to the vet in Stoneham. So, it's not even as if this was more »

  • Posted 01/13/2012 03:36:14 EST

    I'd much rather see a Trader Joe's than Whole Paycheck...er...Whole Foods come to Malden. But I fail to see how a baseball stadium is going to be any kind of economic boon to this city. I mean, let's more »

    @Sentaur - So that makes a juvenile, nasty, and unproductive comment from a professional outlet permissible? We may need to stop making excuses for our collective weight problems, but perhaps you shou more »

    This topic has been addressed ad nauseum in earlier threads. I glance at the board now but haven't been engaged in...um...forever because it's pointless and has been for years. more »
