    I used to work at Borders. They are going under because of lousy management at the corporate level. All bookstores are struggling somewhat, but the well-run stores have a better chance of surviving.

    The other day in Downtown Crossing, I saw a bicyclist riding down the pedestrian-only part of Washington St, cutting off a blind woman trying to cross. I hope karma gets that guy soon. There are many more »

    They're also cutting the price for people who only want streaming, or only want DVDs. I used to pay $9.99 for DVDs and streaming, the latter of which I never used. Now I will pay $7.99 just for the DV more »

    So wait, it's not enough that they are here illegally. Now, we shouldn't deport those who "only" commit petty crimes? We should have a zero tolerance policy for those who are here illegally. I underst more »

    Honestly, people, you don't need to be plugged in all the time. Very few of us are truly that important. more »

    @Reese: Until a few years ago I made $8 an hour...I had roommates! Sure, it would've been nice to live alone, but I couldn't afford it, and no one was subsidizing me... I agree we should provide housi more »

    I have been really frustrated with the T the last couple days--and just in general. But that one MBTA rider who claims it normally takes her 25 minutes to get from Quincy Center to Oak Grove: Are you more »

    From the article: "While tactful peer pressure can help preserve quiet, SEPTA frowns on those who accost noisy first-timers unfamiliar with the rules, or who file written complaints about crying babie more »

    So are they banning espresso martinis as well? more »

    Thank you, Senators!

    I'm liberal on most issues. All Patrick is doing with statements like this is giving me reasons not to vote for him. And there are more people like me than you'd think. more »

    Just went to Tony's on Saturday! I tried the lobster roll for the first time. Great food and really good for people-watching. more »

    Bad weekend to do this. The Walk for Hunger is on Sunday and lots of Brookline and Newton residents need to get downtown! more »

    Kmcmasters: No offense, but I'm not sure how the Friendly's can be considered out of place when it's replacing another chain (which had itself replaced a McDonald's). It seems like, these days, Coolid more »

    I love that it takes me 20 minutes by subway to get downtown, yet I'm also a 15 minute walk from the beach. I love neighborhoods like Merrymount filled with well-preserved, older homes. I love that my more »

    I live in Quincy and agree with a lot of the comments here. n00b: I agree that the homeless can be a problem, but there are lots of homeless people in Copley Square too, yet tourists and locals hang o more »

    I understand that deporting all the illegal immigrants may not be feasible. But they certainly shouldn't get breaks that LEGAL citizens of other US states don't get. And they certainly shouldn't be ta more »

    This is not new. I was bullied as early in first grade, and that was in the 1980s. more »

    I wish the article had mentioned which restaurants are closing and which are independently owned and remain open. As far as I know, the one in my Quincy neighborhood is not closing. more »

    For goodness's sake, Boston Globe. Yesterday you reported a stabbing in Brighton and I forgave you for it, figuring it would be fixed in the print edition. This is nowhere near the Allston/Brighton bo more »

    I'm not a Republican and voted for Patrick, but he comes off as really obstinate here. We cannot build Green Line and commuter rail extensions when the infrastructure is crumbling, we have possibly im more »

    The statistic that 87% of counties have no abortion providers is often quoted, but it's misleading. The large majority of American women live in the other 13% of counties. more »

    I think life sentences without parole would be appropriate in some of these cases but don't believe in mandatory sentencing minimums. And I question the article's statement that those sentenced to lif more »
