Someone paid $92k for a "fake bloodly sock"? Wow. Hasn't it been known for years the real sock was thrown out? Suckers born everyday.
Comment on: Pit bull adoptions increase as suburbanites consider a dog they previously ignored - Style - The Boston Globe
Posted 10/07/2013 07:39:33 EDT
Pit bulls were bred to bite onto the noses of bulls (that's how they got the name) and not let go and this trait is in every Pit Bull. They can be the "nicest puppy" you met until they go into attack more »

We all need to consider that as soon as you go into the ocean, you are entering the wilderness and that always requires caution. It is their domain and no-one should be surprised that sharks and other more »

The issue is not a "spending problem" as too many people like to say. The issue is a "budget problem" and has to be solved by looking at revenue and spending together and not separately. The right has more »

I try to avoid all the tunnels and I know others who do the same. The question is: is the state working on a plan on what to do once the tunnels are closed? more »
Comment on: 'A president with migraines? Ask Thomas Jefferson'
Posted 07/24/2011 06:12:36 EDT
Comparing the presidency today to that of 1800 is foolish. The pace then was much slower versus the 24/7 world we live in today. If Jefferson got ill and took a few days off who knew and who cared? Co more »

The more things change the more they stay the same. This could have been a story about Civil War defense contractors who cheated the government just to get rich. It never changes. The lesson is that t more »

Coakly ran an awful campaign and there is no reason to think she can do better. You could not find so much as a campaign sign anywhere in Cambridge or anywhere around here. She took her win for grante more »
Comment on: 'Wedding is a royal pain'
Posted 04/24/2011 06:21:25 EDT
It is too much and kind of a joke when you think about it. There seems to be all this hype about Will and Kate being a young King and Queen. But, the Queen will likely live another 20 years and then C more »
