Comment on: Rising enrollment means Newton may face redistricting, need for more classrooms - West - The Boston Globe
Posted 10/22/2013 10:50:41 EDT
Buy back the Hyde school. Find some public housing space elsewhere, relocate those residents and take the new Hyde by eminent domain at market prices. Would still be way cheaper than building a new more »
Comment on: McCartney at Fenway Park - Boston.com

I would first ask Paul why he doesn't introduce them on stage, even as he thanked them as a band generically. I thought that was the only part missing from an otherwise amazing night.
Comment on: David O. Russell: McLean Hospital the âgold standardâ - Names - The Boston Globe
Posted 06/28/2013 10:30:33 EDT
It's a great institution and a great cause. Thanks to Russell and others like him for drawing attention to this.

You should get a PR job for a tobacco company. "Cigarettes don't kill, they just allow customers to compress their smoke sucking pleasure into a smaller number of breaths."

DNA evidence, like fingerprint, is not perfect. It can be contaminated in the lab, mislabeled, misinterpreted, overstated by lawyers, etc. It's an excellent addition to the forensic toolbox, but it' more »

Absolutely right - the death penalty should be banned. There is NO way to administer it fairly, stories abound of wrongly convicted people, the demographic stats are lopsided against certain groups, more »
Comment on: Russia contacted FBI `multipleâ times on concerns about alleged Boston Marathon bomber - Boston.com
Posted 04/23/2013 09:58:00 EDT
I hate to say it, but it seems to me there is a basic level of competence missing in the FBI regarding technology. They interviewed this Tamerlan dude in 2011, there are clear photos of him, they get more »
Comment on: Newton approves tax increase - Metro - The Boston Globe
Posted 03/12/2013 10:48:55 EDT
You may not be aware of this, but two of Newton's elementary school buildings are rated by the Commonwealth as among the very worst in the state. A teacher actually got a concussion from falling ceil more »

Posted 03/08/2013 06:28:12 EST
Saying the law is imperfect and needs to be fixed is wholy different froim the question of whether we are better off or worse off without it in its current form. Especially given that you can amend i more »
Comment on: Head Start program in Boston braces for sequestration cuts - Metro - The Boston Globe
Posted 03/03/2013 08:18:48 EST
Instead of assuming you're being lied to, why not do some reading on the topic? Maybe you would find out that not all parts of the government get affected the same amount. Some programs are exempt, more »

When it comes to infidelity, there are two types of people. Those that do it and those that don't have a tempting opportunity to do it. more »
Comment on: Scott Brown doubtful on fourth debate, Warren wants to reschedule - Metro - The Boston Globe
Posted 10/30/2012 10:59:53 EDT
He's been losing the debates, so he probably figures it's better to just slam her with negative TV ads. Probably a good move on his part.
Comment on: New Globe poll shows dead heat in Senate race - Metro - The Boston Globe
Posted 10/29/2012 05:44:08 EDT
The MoE is 4.1% so a 2% lead when almost every other poll has shown Warren in the lead doesn't sound like Brown is in the lead. It sounds like the Globe poll could be an outlier.
Posted 10/29/2012 05:39:24 EDT
Definitely a possibility. If Nate Silver is calling it safe Democratic, then I'd have to see more polls showing Brown ahead.
Comment on: Election endorsement: Elizabeth Warren for Senate - Editorials - The Boston Globe
Posted 10/28/2012 05:06:00 EDT
A lot of good points in this very fair, well-reasoned endoresement. I figured the Globe would endorse Warren, but I am pleasantly surprised by the cogent reasoning. I'm looking forward to see her ta more »
Comment on: Elizabeth Warren known at Harvard Law School as tough but fair - Metro - The Boston Globe
Posted 10/14/2012 10:33:35 EDT
Puff piece? Are you saying she's actually not a wonderful educator admired by both faculty and students at the top law school in the country? You're upset the Globe hasn't run a profile piece admiri more »
Comment on: US SENATE RACE Debate two showdown - Opinion - The Boston Globe
Posted 10/02/2012 12:25:59 EDT
You write "She gave viewers a good sense of the jobs approach sheâd take. Although she dodged a little on Simpson-Bowles..." The reason to dodge on Simpson-Bowles is because it's a terrible plan. In more »
Comment on: Elizabeth Warren appears to inch ahead of Scott Brown in new Globe poll, 43 - 38 - Metro - The Boston Globe
Posted 09/30/2012 10:39:26 EDT
That's quite a scientific poll. Not.
Let me know when the BBO changes their mind and decides there's something to investigate other than which hairs to split.
Posted 09/30/2012 04:19:11 EDT
Oh jim1751, give it a rest. People like you have no substance to use so you keep talking about these trivial issues about a box on a form or some other phony issue. The fact is, if you had anything more »
Posted 09/30/2012 01:00:03 EDT
"Warrenâs lead is within the pollâs margin of error of plus or minus 4.4 percent, meaning a spread of as much as 8 percentage points between the candidates would still statistically count as a dea more »
Comment on: Netanyahu says Iran near bomb - World - The Boston Globe
Posted 09/27/2012 03:20:22 EDT
Could he have picked a more cartoonish looking prop? How about actually putting Wyle E Coyote on there, maybe wearing a turban? He should assume that people can handle looking at a regular graph or more »
Comment on: Scott Brownâs bizarre campaign - Metro - The Boston Globe
Posted 09/26/2012 09:28:16 EDT
Get your extremist colored glasses off. She's not advocating anything ultra liberal.
Posted 09/26/2012 09:26:38 EDT
Stop with the juvenle, condescending"Professor" sarcasm. I noticed Brown keeps using that but it makes him sound like a jr high school kid. "Hey four eyes, hey poindexter". You think that's makes p more »
Comment on: GOP staffers mocked Warren with chants, chops - Metro - The Boston Globe
Posted 09/26/2012 08:28:37 EDT
It's spelled weasel, not weazel. What burden of proof? She and her family believe themselves to have Native American blood and you have no proof that they don't. If you come up with proof of the neg more »
