Comment on: Which Boston-Area College Radio Station Gets the Most Obscenity Complaints?
Posted 05/08/2014 12:48:58 EDT

They introduced this in Philly last fall, and they're only okay; not nearly as good as Boloco's tofu.

It seems as if Remy felt that he had a choice between giving up on his life, or going back on the air. With that being the case, it's not surprising that he made the choice he did. In reality, though, more »

Well, I suppose maybe the advantage to that proposal is that it could create construction jobs while the casino is being built, then go out of business quickly enough that we won't have to deal with t more »

That must be really embarrassing for that woman. Why didn't the school officials go and talk to the woman after the first door? At most public schools there is an intercom through which they could hav more »

Posted 10/06/2013 04:48:31 EDT
As I recall, Beverly became a no-horn zone a few years ago; where trains will not normally blow their whistles at crossings. Has this contributed to a rise in accidents? Would be good to know.

Obviously his spending is absurd, but I imagine that it is in line with other college presidents. If he is fired (which he should be), I hope that he is able to make public the spending by other colle more »

It is kind of odd that intercollegiate athletics would be sponsored by the federal government anyway; you'd think they would have a private endowment from that, if not possible for it to break even on more »

People do still go to movies, but either way it's not a moronic headline: the headline says "tenuous future;" acknowledging that the future was already questionable.

As a performer I find his attitude arrogant. Engage with the hecklers if you want to/need to, or ignore them, but then start up where you left off. Why let a small minority in the audience ruin it fo more »
