Comment on: 'Survival of many high school sports programs south of Boston depends on fees, fund-raising'
Posted 08/30/2010 03:56:22 EDT
When I went to school, we had so many opportunities, and I really fear we are selling the current generation short. Sports are only the latest thing to be put on the chopping block. Art, music, shop, more »

So you have a decent relationship, a guy that treats you well, who has a steady job that he enjoys? But that's not good enough? Leave him so he can find a woman who appreciates him for who he is. Then more »
Comment on: 'The incredible shrinking office'
Posted 08/26/2010 12:39:27 EDT
I like that the managers and, to some extent, the executives in this firm also became a part of the "open plan" office. Often the managers "need" offices so they can "concentrate" or "work on sensitiv more »

hfffc, I'd rather have money thrown away than lives. People operating buses and trains have the responsibility of every (unbelted and unrestrained) passenger on that vehicle in their hands, in additio more »

I'm glad to see that the T management is actually taking this thing very seriously. If you actually read the article, quite a few people have been fired and it appears that tips that come in are proce more »

I lost 35 pounds on WW and have switched to calorie counting. I think lots of people think of weight loss as a one time thing, or a thing you do for a while and then stop. To be successful you need to more »

I concur with zenfu. Study after study has demonstrated that a person on a cell phone talking is as equally impaired as a drunk. Texting is even worse. Personal responsibility is all well and good whe more »

Most cities have laws as to when power equipment can be used. I'd try and talk first, using empathy (e.g. "Work is really tough with the recession and all, and your leaf blower is keeping me up. Do yo more »

I am glad they are having this class. I would have gone for less cutesy names, though. I would have picked "snurder" and "texslaughter". When you get behind the wheel, you are in charge of a weapon th more »

People seem to think that houses "way back when" were all black and white. It's just not true. Hysterical, er, historical societies seem to have their vision of what is "proper" in their head, when in more »

Wow, the negativity here is amazing. A manufacturer admits a problem, then, assigns one of their employees to the job full time and also sets the expectation of 24 hours for replacement and this is so more »

lizzo, I was not trying to single you out. I know you were not trying to advance the "anti-undesirable" argument. But I've heard the same argument in affluent town after affluent town, usually in rega more »
