Comment on: Report: Three Days After Signing, LeGarrette Blount to Suit Up for Pats - Extra Points - Boston.com

wonder if Jonas Gray sitting has as much to do with his tweets and comments after the discipline as the fact that he missed practice
Comment on: Push by workers for paid sick days gathers steam
Posted 10/04/2014 10:21:07 EDT
I'm guessing the laundromat doesn't have more than 10 workers--so it wouldn't make a change in the example. It is those small businesses that have trouble with coverage when people are sick. Larger en more »
Comment on: A booming economy and waterfront development makes the quest for a parking spot in Boston worse than ever - Business - The Boston Globe

JDB- Have a look at the various MBTA commuter rail schedules to the south, the west and the north. While a few lines run more often, most others drop down markedly while many people are still working. more »
Posted 10/03/2014 09:41:48 EDT
For more people to take the MBTA, they need to add to the train schedule. People aren't going to wait an hour in the evening for a train. The Tobin is a mess. The Pike is a mess. Downtown parking is a more »

It would be great to take public transportation...if you can wait forever for the next train in the evening. MBTA: ADD MORE TRAINS. more »
Comment on: August Commuting Traffic Worse Than Ever. Thanks Pike.
Posted 09/01/2014 03:41:13 EDT
How about they work out having the MBTA add more trains? Many people drive because the evening train schedules are so inconvenient. There are plenty of train lines that service many of the same locale more »

Comment on: What in Godâs Name Is Happening with Mass Pike Traffic?
Posted 08/13/2014 08:55:46 EDT
Would be helped HUGELY if they would add MBTA trains to the schedule--then a lot of drivers would take the train. As long as many evening schedules go to once an hour when many people are still workin more »

Diving to draw penalty on Bartkowski with a few minutes left? "Veteran move". Knocking the goal off intentionally with 10 seconds left. "Veteran move". Squirting the guy who just dove, turtled and whi more »

Good on PK. Hard not to like the kid's game, athleticism, skating, shooting. Fun to boo, because he's so darn good--like the treatment Chara gets. But class comment on his part to diffuse something more »
Comment on: She Didn't Win, But Shalane Flanagan Represents What's Great About Boston - Touching All the Bases - Boston.com

inspired young runners I saw and heard talking at the race today--who well know who Shalane is and that she was them a decade and a half or so. Notably, her time today would have won Boston every year more »

Smith seemed like the 7th player shoe-in until February, but not sure how you overlook Soderberg at this point. Team looks great--but let's remember, the real hockey doesn't start until the playoffs. more »

Excellent run so far.
Perfect would be Wilfork also boomeranging back to Foxboro and signing one new top receiver.

A failed stretch to find a new way to complain about smoking bans. There IS a consistent, liberal principle: if the activity harms someone else (drinking AND driving, smoking around others) it's restr more »
Comment on: Report: Shawn Thornton suspended 15 games - bruins blog - Boston Globe hockey news
Posted 12/14/2013 03:28:05 EST
BTW--probably worth it to take the 15 games and send a message that the team won't put up with that s*&$. But imagine, if Thornton had just skated straight up to the front of Orpik, dropped his glove more »
Posted 12/14/2013 03:24:33 EST
boomerst3--"mugging" was a figurative term--but it fits. All Thornton had to do was approach from the front and initiate a hockey fight. He didn't. He slew footed Orpik from behind. Then he popped more »
Posted 12/14/2013 02:49:50 EST
Love Thornton, the fact that he can actually play the game, his standing up for teammates, and his being a good guy in the community. Amazing that in 11 years of playing his role, he's never had an i more »

So, similarly, mercury and other chemicals in water are a ludicrous concern, as are banned pesticide substances, banned chemicals in food, other substances where long term studies show harmful health more »

Some poor logic by those whining "nanny state" and the "make it illegal or back off" set. Smoking is harmful. You're free to harm yourself. Second hand smoke is harmful. You're not free to harm other more »

Just want to see some consistency. If you're going to flag McCordy for the hold on the Panther's key late 4th Q scoring drive, then you need to flag Carolina for holding Gronk.

Ignore Maher--he's neither that funny, that clever nor that smart. Far better talent to watch than him.
Comment on: Adding Celtics games a low-risk gamble for Sports Hub, radio observers say - Business - Boston.com

Bummer--that presumably will result in less Pats and Bruins coverage on the Sports Hub to waste time on the Celtics.
