  • Comment on: 'WEEI, WBZ fighting for sports talk victories'

    Posted 08/09/2010 09:54:55 EDT

    I am a long time WEEI basher, mostly because of Dennis and Callahan, and the addition of the Sports Hub to the airwaves is like a dream come true. I know the D&C show is popular with certain people, a more »

  • Comment on: Rescue Catholicism from Vatican - The Boston Globe

    Posted 04/05/2010 05:51:34 EDT

    Think about it: some out of touch old men sit in the Vatican making decisions that millions live their lives by. They've probably never had to work a day in their lives and they sit there like they co more »

  • Comment on: 'Republican trounces Coakley for Senate, imperils Obama health plan'

    Posted 01/20/2010 01:42:08 EST

    Again, Scott Brown = flavor-of-the-month. Time will tell. Let's see if he can do what the people of Massachusetts elected him to do. more »

    Posted 01/20/2010 01:35:26 EST

    Scott Brown = flavor-of-the-month. Let's all come back here a year from now and see if we're still popping the champagne. He seems like a pretty good guy, he has decent credentials and he ran a very g more »

  • Comment on: 'Roster miscues rest with Belichick'

    Posted 10/21/2009 10:11:26 EDT

    How many rookies are gonna supplant established veterans? So the draft argument is sort of bogus. Yean maybe there have been some misses, but the draft is only one means to acqyuire talent. I'd like t more »

  • Comment on: 'Daniels has no reservations'

    Posted 10/02/2009 09:55:26 EDT

    Dear Globe

    Did Daniels go to Vanderbilt or Auburn? Please clarify or fact check. more »

  • Comment on: 'Governor threatens a Hyatt boycott'

    Posted 09/24/2009 11:31:11 EDT

    The Hyatt used poor judgement, and I'm sure that the Hyatt's hardworking housekeeping staff deserved better than what they got. These are people just trying to make a living. But ALL businesses look a more »

  • Comment on: For%20better%20...%20or%20for%20worse%3F

    Posted 09/22/2009 12:02:01 EDT

    Tony How is that Red Sox "sham of a franchise" doing these days? Good call on that one. Do you think maybe you're being a bit premature? I think you're hoping you're right so that you can say told ya more »

  • Comment on: 'Kendall Square is starting to work as a home for many'

    Posted 09/16/2009 01:55:03 EDT

    Kendall has changed, but not all for the better. I can remember the vacant lots and dilapidated buildings, which were not good. But now the place is surrounded by the hulking frames of biotech giants. more »

  • Comment on: 'A politically incorrect subject?'

    Posted 09/03/2009 09:06:06 EDT

    I've heard Curt speak on the issues. He may be candid and he speaks without a filter, which is good, but based on what I've heard I don't think he really gets the issues or would represent Massachuset more »

  • Comment on: Don’t let Senate seat be vacant - The Boston Globe

    Posted 08/21/2009 10:27:15 EDT

    This IS a hypocritical request. The way succession is decided currently was put in place purely for political reasons. It was meant to thwart one man's ability to name a successor because he was a Rep more »

  • Comment on: 'Leaders cool to Kennedy's request to appoint interim Senate successor'

    Posted 08/21/2009 10:04:40 EDT

    A special election is the way to go. The power for the Governor to appoint, whether the right or wrong way to decide succession, was wrested from Romney as a way to thwart him. Now that Romney is not more »

  • Comment on: 'Patrick-Menino rift points to bigger woe in reelection campaign'

    Posted 08/06/2009 03:28:25 EDT

    This biggest laugh in this article is that Menino says that Patrick's "private sector" ways makes him an out-of-his-element Guv (paraphrasing). Last time I checked, Patrick was elected by the people t more »

  • Comment on: 'Patrick hastens to rebut poll, but his foes sense an opening'

    Posted 07/27/2009 08:57:30 EDT

    I think Deval Patrick has had a few peaks and valleys during his first term as governor, which is to be expected. No one is infallible. I like some of the things he's done (whether others admit it or more »

  • Comment on: 'FM challenger to muscle into Hub sports-talk scene'

    Posted 07/15/2009 02:04:07 EDT

    One thing I learned from perusing these comments is that Dennis and Callahan are by far the biggest target for WBCN to take out. I don't wish them ill will personally, but as a team, I simply cannot s more »

  • Comment on: 'FM challenger to muscle into Hub sports-talk scene'

    Posted 07/15/2009 12:05:31 EDT

    If the new WBCN sports format offers an alternative to the Dennis and Callahan show, I will be the first one to tune in. I left WEEI in the AM a long time ago because the hosts' "alternative" to exclu more »

  • Comment on: 'Police unions act fast to undo $50m cut in salary bonus'

    Posted 04/21/2009 11:17:09 EDT

    Great, let's politicize this issue too. In the real world it's up to the individual to get a college degree and use that as the basis for salary negotiation. Maybe it's time to restructure the civil s more »

  • Comment on: 'Widen right to drive, say chiefs'

    Posted 04/20/2009 08:38:32 EDT

    My parents are both immigrants and came here in the 1960's. They have since become citizens. In fact, my mother had to have a sponsor to come here in the first place. They did it the right way, and it more »

  • Comment on: Scarce%20resource%20or%20scare%20tactic%3F

    Posted 04/15/2009 04:50:05 EDT

    I'm sorry, but you're dead wrong LeBovidge. I am generally sympathetic to the fact that state and municipal services come at a cost to the consumer (residents). But don't forget who is PAYING for the more »
