I agree that it is unfortunate that the island had to be evacuated so swiftly, and regret the effects that had on folks who walked way from treatment. But the truth is that these organizations knew th more »

The only way this bridge will be rebuilt is with MassDOT funds, and if so I think it should only done if it's a public roadway. Use state tax dollars, then you have to let everyone use the bridge. Oth more »

I'll take this as good news. Drivers need to shift their mentality. It ain't the 80s or 90s anymore with easy street parking whenever you wanted to hop into town. Hopefully this driver outrage will ma more »

With all the other underfunded public infrastructure needs we have, this is way way down on my list of what needs public subsidies. Maybe small water taxis would work, but not big ferries. If you want more »

This is ridiculous, and shows the inability of Catholics to to look outside the narrow box they live in and realize that their religious views are not the only ones allowed in this great country of ou more »

Interesting that, when this article was posted last night, the title was something about the breach of privacy being worse than the racist comments. I'm guessing the Globe realized that, yeah, the ra more »

Do you think I could be added as a host community for the casinos too? I mean, if physical boundaries are meaningless, maybe the definition of community can be broadened to include anyone who hosts i more »

Good thing he's going to a facility with a great reputation for mental health care. Oh, wait, he's being sent to Bridgewater? more »

Here's a pretty cool article about the engineering design.. and the foundations are drilled concrete shafts.

Either way, I realize I'm being picky. But isn't what what comment sections are for?

Yes, fattony3333, I know what a casing is. As wikipedia says, casings are used to hold open borings or keep water/contaminants out. The foundation could be a drilled shaft with a steel casing filled more »

The building itself is anchored into bedrock with cement casings that are up to 185 feet below ground." Not sure why the Globe writers can't get structural terms right... Cement is a powder and casing more »

I think the headline should read "Crimea declares complete dependence on Russia"

We should charge the parade organizers the cost of the police OT and cleanup, then they can have their private parade. Otherwise, the city shouldn't pay for a private, discriminatory parade.

What happened to the Republican lawmakers who were adamant about not passing legislation that wasn't paid for? The flood insurance program is a mess, subsidizing homeowners who built in risky areas. more »

That's the best-dressed protest I've ever seen.

How we Bostonians put up with the BRA is beyond me. Any other public agency wanting to do any work on public land has to put out projects to the lowest qualified bidder, while the BRA fights for swee more »

Apparently you haven't been hit by ice chunks flying off a semi truck a few cars in front of you (on the highway, that is). At low speeds, it's not a big deal but once you go 50mph or so, that snow a more »

If you have a smartphone, download the CitizensConnect app, and get to work reporting all these property owners who don't shovel. It works surprisingly well.

I normally agree with Yvonne, but not here. The casino law is the law of the commonwealth, and if they are allowed by the law to revise their plan to work just in Revere then I say go for it. That d more »

The Globe should at least get their facts right - what happened in the legisltation was that the budget cap of the lock & dams project was raised from 1.7 billion to 2.9 billion. Funding up to this 2 more »

"Some Americans were already filling the pinch" . . . sounds kinda dirty to me.

If you're buying or renting a unit in a development that had to carve out additional space for more parking, then you're subsidizing parking. Less parking spaces in a development means more space for more »
