Innocent until proven guilty...let's keep it that way. What is keeping her from going to the police? Is there some legal obstacle to a regular police investigation? Why not simply bypass the universit more »

Though Democrats are imo at least an order of magnitude worse, crap like this inane bill shows the disgusting underbelly of the Republicans. I can not for the life of me fathom why someone in a party more »

It must be if Harvard, in its infinite wisdom, has decreed it so.A mediocre idea flawlessly implemented is usually superior to a great idea poorly implemented...

I can attest that the streets have been better plowed (and salted, yes!) since January6 than in the preceding storms for at least the past two years. So whoever was stealing the salt - or salt budget more »

Yes the 'child' (btw she's a teen) would certainly not want anyone to know that the state agency, powerful hospital, and kangaroo court had conspired to have her locked up for a year at a psychiatric more »

Yes, the gag order raises so many questions, doesn't it? I commend the parents over and over for shining the spotlight of public attention on to their child's situation. Just as you aptly state, the more »

You know, I've had mixed experience with Children's. Good, nay great doctors in the actual medical departments...such as audiology, neurology, communication disorders, general pediatrics, orthopedics. more »

@truthbetold Yes, the gag order is one of the most absolutely sickening, nauseating aspects of this story...Of course the fact that a teen was incarcerated in a psychiatric facility for a year is the more »

You know, I'd say the parents...they spent a whopping amount more time with this teen than the doctors who saw her for the first time when she walked into their hospital... And consider that there are more »

Jim thanks for sharing this important observation. The fact is that because these over-reaching medical people were affiliated with a powerful institution - Boston Children's Hospital - their demands more »

All good questions...one thing I'd find interesting is how these cluster by schools. For example, what fraction of the students in Boston attend the three exam schools? I'd wager it's a very high perc more »

What kind of office products do they offer? BTW I love IBM. But it only overlaps with some segments of MSFT. MSFT is a company generating huge revenues and healthy profit across most segments. They ha more »

In any case, clearing the decks for Rand Paul to chew up Hillary and ... her out is fine by me.

Well....that depends what the meaning of 'is' is.

Someone said there's evidence? Well, that settles it I guess...

So lucky that we can choose. I can't say I have loyalty to one store brand. I do think Publix is the best big name chain in Florida, and consistently good across stores. Whole Foods is great for a sel more »

You mean a script paid for by Obamacare?
Well, at least it won't be under patent I suppose. Like pricey biotech drugs?

Oh, wait...Amesbury. Excellent. Local jobs.

Well, hopefully this will create more jobs, especially for medium skill workers. And hopefully some benefit for patients. Where is the weed, er marijuana coming from, is there a requirement to grow it more »

The Boston school district and other school districts routinely require these gag orders on settlements with families, in order to cover their tracks. The state plays right along with it.

Not all of us are affluent enough to afford a fat bike + a fixie for nice days, + a car to haul the family in...the WSJ profiled fat bikes about a month ago... they seem nice, but pricey.
