Beautifully put!: "It is a relic of days past in Cambridge when matters of the mind mattered more than money." I too came to Cambridge 30+ years ago, and stayed because people only cared about what I more »

No need to upend the justice system, wrenhunter. Just make domestic violence "special" - put the burden on the defendant to prove he is not an abuser. I like your idea of an automatic restraining or more »

Until we have new laws, and domestic violence has been eradicated, articles like this are important. Public awareness leads to the political will for zero tolerance on domestic violence.

Is there some way that at least part of the Prouty Garden could be preserved inside the new building?
