Comment on: 'Polito scrutinized over low-number Sox plates'
Posted 12/02/2010 06:10:38 EST

Comment on: 'GOP letter vows intransigence'
Posted 12/01/2010 06:39:23 EST
Republicans are refusing to do anything until rich people get more tax breaks. Super. I am pretty sure that's not what people want. But, you get what you vote for, and I sure hope the folks who voted more »
Comment on: 'SJC nominee tells of threats after marriage ruling'
Posted 12/01/2010 06:33:42 EST
By the way -- one role of the courts is to protect minorities from the tyranny of the majority. We should all be very grateful for that because you never know when you might be in the minority and nee more »

Comment on: Cooking up a healthy lifestyle - The Boston Globe
Posted 11/27/2010 08:18:50 EST
Some of the comments here are fairly shocking. People who think poor people are lazy have probably never been poor themselves. Life is vastly more challenging when you are poor. It infuriates me that more »
Comment on: 'Banks raise fees in bid to offset regulations'
Posted 11/13/2010 06:20:48 EST
As I understand it, the banks are doing this not to maintain their solvency, but to maintain their profits. And, what do they do with their fat profits? They pay their executives, the folks who nearly more »

Comment on: 'Downtown Crossing improvement plans hit snag'
Posted 11/08/2010 06:11:10 EST

Comment on: 'A feud with a view'
Posted 09/15/2010 06:56:53 EDT
Astonishing that anyone thinks it's okay to knock down a house because of a failure to compromise. What an ugly society we live in. The Sheys should be terribly, terribly ashamed of themselves. The wa more »
Comment on: For sake of competition, GOP should write in AG candidate - The Boston Globe
Posted 09/08/2010 06:19:48 EDT
First the Globe fell all over itself promoting Scott Brown in January. Now this. Is it misogyny or is it something about Martha Coakley? If it's the former, c'mon boys, new century and all. If it's th more »
Comment on: 'GOP targets nominee to run health agency'
Posted 05/13/2010 07:06:03 EDT
Let's be real. The Republicans have been holding up hundreds of appointments. Because of their reflexive "no" to the Obama administration on everything, they simply have no credibility when they criti more »
Comment on: Though wind power isnât free, benefits justify extra cost - The Boston Globe
Posted 05/13/2010 06:42:38 EDT
I will gladly pay more for cleaner energy. It's good for the environment and it's patriotic (lessens our dependence on foreign oil, etc.) Frankly, I am appalled by the short-term selfishness of people more »
Comment on: Petty payback on Beacon Hill - The Boston Globe
Posted 05/12/2010 06:31:49 EDT
The Legislature needs to keep its hands off the Judiciary. It's bad in principle and bad in practice. While they're at it, they should also fund it properly. We're talking about the administration of more »
Comment on: Council must rescue Boston from bloated firefighter raise - The Boston Globe
Posted 05/12/2010 06:26:40 EDT

Thank you for a lovely story. Ignore the people who don't understand that part of a newspaper's mission is to tell such lovely stories. And to share reviews of movies and restaurants. And to provide s more »
Comment on: 'All sides press councilors over raise for firefighters'
Posted 05/11/2010 06:55:50 EDT
The firefighters should be deeply, deeply ashamed of themselves. The reason why the story keeps landing on the front page is because of the widespread and rightful outrage at the firefighters' greed. more »
Comment on: No need to backtrack on rights - The Boston Globe
Posted 05/11/2010 06:50:57 EDT
Not sure why so many people are willing to cut little inroads into constitutional rights. We know that people talk after Miranda rights are read. We know that torture doesn't work at all. What's the p more »
Comment on: 'Communities review Ariz. boycott'
Posted 05/11/2010 06:41:19 EDT
Let's remember some key facts: Illegal immigration is down in Arizona and illegal immigrants pay more in taxes than they receive in services. So, really, why did they need to pass this law? Because so more »

Comment on: How not to run a hospital - The Boston Globe
Posted 05/09/2010 10:22:15 EDT
