The rules must have changed. I was told I would be on crutches for 6 months so I tried to apply for the Ride. They told me it had to be a permanent disability for me to qualify. I was grateful not t more »

How many participants in each section (placebo vs actual) got the flu?

So sad that the "best and the brightest" of college minds have not figured out how to end this problem but instead must hire someone to address it after the crime has all ready occured. The upward sp more »

It follows that we should name humans inherently dangerous and uninsurable? They have been known to bite in far greater numbers than horses and we can't corral them like we can a horse.

"I remember my school days very well. I went through the baby boomer era, and my junior high school was an antiquated as it could get, and remains that way to this day." Exactly, so how was his educat more »

"respectable Sears matrons?" Will anyone know what this phrase means in a decade? Maybe this is why they are taking away public restrooms and replacing them with Purell dispensers.

I so agree about the online homework. The quality is not there and yet the school buys the crap it is a booming industry!

As I said above, my childrens school gives them the iPads and despite parents objections they are required for school work. Since when has a child learned to write on an iPad? Many parents are starti more »

I don't buy devices for my kids the school gives iPads to them!

I think "under God" is a reminder that although our liberty and justice (and free public education for that matter) are due to our government's principles there is a higher moral authority (it doesn't more »

Of course we would need bug free software and, looking at how long my technologically advanced appliances last, I would need a guarantee that the car maker would fix computer problems on their dime.

This was ridiculous micromanaging. There is no reason to eliminate salt from children's diets and have you ever tasted a lunchroom pear? Most kids would eat fruit (not to sure about the veggies) if it more »

If only the state's politicians would take notice and realized gambling is not something the Commonwealth wants nor needs. At best it is a short term fix at worst it will be an ongoing headache becaus more »

I hope this prompts the government to action. Tick borne illnesses are horrible and even if you live in the city you are not safe because all it takes is a visit to the Cape/Islands or the Berkshires more »

A restraining order is hardly worth the paper it is printed on that is why most victims do not request one. Assault and battery should have a harsh sentence and if domestic violence is treated as seri more »

My children's school has a Health and Wellness Director (he also teaches Health) that can not control his eating. They get to hear "do as I say, not as I do." Meanwhile the caloric limits have been l more »

Is Western Mass now so economically strong that they can stand tolls and high gas prices? I don't think so. I see a foreclosure resurgance.

MAMLEO is a sham and biased themselves. They choose to defend an incompetent cop who failed in his duty to protect other color/sex victims. Obviously color is all they hold dear (not lawenforcement). more »

When my kids were young the local playground was always littered with cigarette butts and lottery tickets. The air is not the only thing spoiled by smoking.

If only society cared as much about human children as they do about disease carrying invasive species.

Utilities spend so little on infrastructure because they think it is more important to spend millions on executive compensation and perks. There are always gas leaks in my town and it takes many years more »

This ties into women drinking more wine, a self medicating way to slow down. Rich or poor, a lot of our busyness is driven by fear. The US seems less and less like the land of opportunity. In the p more »
