I think the article contains the answer. Check out this line: "âThereâs not a bunch of âboys can do betterâ in China,â Feng said." Unfortunately, things aren't that way here....

Mr. Feeney, I just wanted to tell you that I loved this line: "Except that she turns into an eagle instead of a swan." What a great summary of Eleanor Roosevelt!

The college students can be a pain, but the universities themselves are part of what makes Boston such a great place to live; we'd be immeasurably poorer without them. And the universities wouldn't su more »

That's the EXCUSE the authorities gave, but that's not WHY. Once a perpetrator or collaborator is caught, they'll say anything that they think will get them off the hook. The cops were probably being more »

Where does one find out what the cultural norms ARE? I'd be happy to follow them, but it's not as if they give you a pamphlet with cultural norms when one enters another country. When I moved to a new more »

THIS is why I subscribe to the Boston Globe, even though news is readily available online. The Globe has been outstanding in curtailing abuses of power in all walks of life, from the priests who sexua more »

Sounds like he has zero remorse; I hope that will be taken into account at his sentencing. more »

Leonard Nimoy tweeted "What a sad day. Shocking loss of Robin Williams. A brilliant talent and a gentle man. May his memory LLAP" Zachary Quinto tweeted: ""o captain! my captain! rise up and hear the more »

I'd never heard of him before, but he sounds intelligent, thoughtful and gutsy. I think I need to learn more about Mr. Berwick. more »

Wrong! The Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, sex, religion, color, or national origin. Sexual orientation is NOT included in the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and tha more »

My husband and I were there last night, and Mr. Nimoy was adorable. He was wonderfully playful with Ms. Hicks, and it was great to see him looking quite healthy after the reports of his COPD. A corn more »

When I was teaching Social Psychology to college students, I made the point again and again and AGAIN that correlation is not causation, giving a lot of examples and making them funny. And yet no mat more »

Daniel Collazo's relatives really need to sue. OSHA isn't allowed to levy fines large enough to change corporate behavior, but the court system is. A lot of lawsuits are frivolous, but this one woul more »

Nothing will repay this man for spending the best years of his life in jail for a crime he didn't commit. His case is a tragedy, and I'm glad he's finally been paid and can get on with his life. more »

Congratulations to Mr. Nimoy! And thanks for having brought to life a character that so many of us have found inspiring, comforting, or otherwise personally relevant. Having read your autobiographies, more »

Vicarious traumatization is a real possibility and is one reason why we should all be careful what images we choose to take in.

"The MBTA investigated and contributed the derailment to human error, the Boston Globe reports"
Um, you mean "ATTRIBUTED," not "contributed."

Sounds like this guy needed to see a doctor, not a judge.

That's. So. Cool!

My doctor almost never LOOKS at me; he has his face in the computer nearly the entire time that I'm in his office. I understand that he's required to fill out forms and to take notes, but it feels qu more »

Thanks, Mom, for talking to me so frequently and at such length. :-)
