It's nonsensical that bananas are included in this comparison. For one thing, six of the nine stores offered Chiquita brand bananas - obviously NOT a "house brand."

Unfortunately, that Chowhound thread is three years old and mentions a number of places that are very quiet indeed because they have closed: Cognac Bistro, Sel de la Terre, Market, Grain and Salt, etc more »

I'm disappointed that this article didn't touch on the most egregious noise problem I've heard of recently - the fact that sound from Alden & Harlow is interfering with film screenings at the Brattle more »

So sorry to hear this.

Link is to last week's Miss Conduct chat....

So where's the chat?

ajp77 is referring to the fact that the sidebar box includes this cryptic statement:
"Handicap accessibility: All major credit cards accepted."

"...we're pretty sure you'll see some sort of reprisal of their various shared sketches."
I believe the word you're thinking of is "reprise" rather than "reprisal."

My parents both died in 2005, and I inherited their home and their phone number. Although I changed the outgoing message promptly, eight years later I still haven't had the heart to change the voice I more »

This letter reminded me oddly of the plot arc in Gilmore Girls in which Emily, after having been separated from Richard, planned a vow renewal ceremony that was basically an over-the-top "wedding" com more »

I'm not convinced that referring to "Freud's blind spot about women" denigrates blindness - a blind spot for the sighted is a real enough phenomenon, as my husband will testify pretty much any time he more »

Boston.com really really really needs copy editors. There is no "s" In Susan Orlean's last name.

"Jeopardy" is misspelled on the headline on the boston.com fron page that links to this item. Someone might want to fix that.

This. A million times this. I am really tired of not being able to sit down to eat the food I bought at a food-serving establishment because of people camped out working, and I'm really surprised th more »

#1: Rachel Raczka can't write - she rarely makes a post without at least one grammatical eror or misuse of a word. It's a shame that boston.com doesn't employ copy editors, because she needs one. #2 more »

We already have lion's head meatballs in Allston, at Shanghai Gate.

There's an error in your graphic - Engine 4/Ladder 24 (200 Cambridge Street) is not located on the Cambridge Street in Allston.

This is a very odd reply. Do you truly have no interactions with other people other than business (and you say that you have no interpersonal interactions at work) and your club? How strange.

Well, no - "in-laws" may refer to the relationship of the parents and the children (i.e., father-in-law, daughter-in-law), but there's not really a term for the in-law relationship directly between th more »

"Jeopardy!" is pretty clear on this rule: they accept misspellings in the written Final Jeopardy answer ONLY if that misspelling doesn't affect how the answer would be pronounced. For example, a miss more »
