About Me: I lived in metro Boston for 25 years and summered in Scituate for over 20, as well.
Emmanuel and Boston College degrees.
Have currently 11 inside cats, taken from the street, feed 5 ferals whom I trapped, neutered and returned and they come every day for breakfast and supper, and we have 6 insulated feral cat shelters on our property which some use every day. We also had 5 dogs, one at a time, all from shelters, whom we adopted and they are all in heaven now.
Retired, married and am now 65 years old. My husband is wonderfully supportive of what I (we)do and is very helpful.
Consider Boston to be H-O-M-E. Not a lover of NYC, where we live in a suburb style house. Rarely go to Manhattan even though it's close by! What for?

And I should like to add that I had a brother who spent a year in the Mekong Delta in Vietnam at the height of the War. Please don't start telling me I don't appreciate "our heroes". I wish that "ou more »

Thank you, Bendogger, for writing that. My comment will anger many, but here it is: It is a fool's journey to travel to Afghanistan to an illegal war action that should have never taken place. Why more »

Comment on: New tests show no evidence of forgery in âGospel of Jesusâs Wifeâ - Metro - The Boston Globe

Of course, I'd love to believe it is authentic, but it flies in the face of the complete and utter silence in all other references to the life of Jesus - that he had a wife. I cannot imagine the Gosp more »

DRK, Yes, a presumption of innocence is critically important right now when such tragic losses have happened. I am talking about a constitutional presumption until proven in a court of law. So extre more »

BAMDAD118, I wish I had a dollar for your kind of hateful, stereotyping remarks: "We have politicians who swear to uphold and protect the laws of this land. If you don't like the laws, change them. 68 more »

The Cardinal puts social justice ahead of the rule of the law, just as Martin Luther King, Jr. did.

Aborted fetuses are used in medical research. I had an MD pathologist who used aborted fetus parts for research. He told me so.
I have no trouble with this.

Pacovka, Thank you. But it is a win-win for anyone who helps animals. It is true that it fills what may be a gap in one's emotional life, but I like to think that it is a very constructive and hel more »

The reading you have done - including an op-ed in the NY Times - is based on false science. As a matter of fact, the truth is not being published enough. Please do read this balanced report: http:/ more »

Why do you want them dead? To make YOU feel better because you consider them to be a nuisance, right?

What you have written is based on junk science. Feral cats are not the "vicious killers" you say they are: See this: http://www.alleycat.org/page.aspx?pid=1011
