I feel your pain, Steve Grossman. And I know that you're a better man than I. Having experienced the true joy of passing kidney stones, I don't know how you kept functioning there, let alone be presen more »

Iâve never previously given much thought to the death penalty. But on this, I am certain: Iâd much prefer to see Sampson executed for his monstrous acts. My decision on this surprises me, as I hav more »

This actually came out of the mouth of a functional, informed human: ââItâs cruel to tell struggling coal families that they canât have a job because some billionaire from San Francisco disagr more »

âIn just five years between 2006 and 2011â, NOAA reports that the recreational catch of striped bass in Massachusetts plummeted by 85 percentâ. And as a result, fishermen and their money are sta more »

I don't 'hate snow' either, Nicole. I can always get warmer .... but I can't always get cooler. Having lived in an area that has far colder average temps, Boston is comparatively balmy! Another reason more »

Donât forget about the counter to the âNIMBYâ argument: the plantâs employees and the careers that they have here. Call it âYIMBYâ: Yes, in my back yard. A great many -- if not the majorit more »

I was afraid they'd never take action, so this is positive. Hope it's a good effort and that they revise it as necessary. And yes, I concur with Lesvalseuses. Rachel Carson, they've forgotten it all, more »

Mr Ramsay is surely not referring to any product of US, Canadian, or Mexican-based horses, as the wholly unregulated status of these animals rules their meat out of consideration by an informed popula more »

The reference to a âglue factoryâ may have been used as a euphemism, but be assured that some 170,000 US horses ship to slaughter annually in Mexican slaughter plants. US horses ship in similar nu more »

Me sad. And so disappointed that Red Sox management couldn't make it a goal to deal to keep him here. But, maybe there was no earthly way to do that. I wish Ellsbury well, and I thank him for his effo more »

They "want to amend the law to limit litigation from wildlife advocates that has resulted in protections for some species. And they want to give states more authority over imperiled species within the more »

Those parcels that are of a size that are advantageous to the support of wildlife, green space, and recreation are finite and invaluable. Without doubt, the majority are irreplaceable, and would be f more »

Outstanding choice!! Those Harvard thespians didn't need to wait for their degrees from Harvard to show their smarts.

I agree with the Ritzer family. A life sentence here, for this juvenile, is appropriate. I have no confidence that this individual will ever know right from wrong, and society needs to be protected f more »

I agree, but I fear that pharmaceutical companies aim at the bigger payback for preventive- or treatment-based programs. Those of us who've contacted Lyme disease in time to prevent its worst are incr more »

I used to think that Sampson's long, slow decay in jail was the best justice for his victims and their families. I've changed my mind: no more column inches, no mention on Boston's evening news, his n more »

DON'T let him go. Just sayin'.

Those fears seem rather extreme, lucyl. I support a move to increase access by authorities: police and animal control officials. It's widely under-reported &/or disregarded that those who injure/tortu more »

What public resources are there to gain actual figures for deaths, as related to these turbines?And, has any non-industry group corroborated/ascertained that those figures are accurate/substantiated?
Posted 12/06/2013 11:05:51 EST
Where are the incentives/deterrents for the involved parties to pursue a benign operational presence? I fear that w/o that, this concern is an "us/them" stand-off. And where does that leave 'nature'? more »

Yes, and maybe not necessarily "middle ground", per se, but hopefully, proven, successful methods/approaches that enable supportive efforts could be implemented for this and similarly-challenged speci more »

Oh, they're gonna hear from me on this one! "Dozens" of American Bald Eagles are killed annually? I'll tell you this: we're gonna see those numbers climb now, baby. Mark my words.Damn dumb decision.

Thanks, and good luck, Jacoby. It's been great to have you in Boston. I wish you well. And if you find that you want to come back .... just sayin'.
