Steyn may be a Canadian citizen. His Wikipedia bio says that's the case, although the source it links to is unclear: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Steyn
Comment on: New film on Whitey Bulger is pretty good, but makes inaccurate claim that he wasnât an informant - Metro - The Boston Globe
Posted 02/04/2014 01:27:35 EST
Kevin, obviously Whitey was an informant. But when I read your and Shelley's excellent book, I understood how Whitey has managed to convince himself that he wasn't. After all, he was paying off the go more »

Comment on: Mass. casino repeal petition: Why I will sign it - Opinion - The Boston Globe
Posted 09/27/2013 01:59:26 EDT
Just say no to casinos. But what will we do if the courts fail to overturn Martha Coakley's decision to keep this question off the ballot?

Yes, I'm one of the old farts who had to look up "twerk."
Comment on: The Huffington Post surrenders to the trolls - Boston.com
Posted 08/27/2013 10:40:14 EDT
Sadly, not the first time. Since I follow this stuff, I run into that specious argument all the time.
Posted 08/27/2013 08:41:20 EDT
How is this "dangerous" and "at odds with the First Amendment," Tom? I didn't realize HuffPost was an arm of the government.

Posted 06/17/2013 08:21:00 EDT
We've come to associate kneeling with execution? Really?
Comment on: DH should become fulltime - Sports - The Boston Globe

Yes, by all means, get rid of the DH.
Comment on: Developer pitches $200 million boutique hotel, slot parlor in Boxborough - Metro - The Boston Globe
Posted 05/08/2013 07:57:25 EDT
Does this mean there's no longer a proposal for Danvers? No one has reported that it's been officially withdrawn.

Comment on: Mayor Thomas M. Menino undergoing surgery for broken leg - Boston.com
Posted 04/13/2013 10:49:32 EDT
My definition of "minor surgery" is surgery that is done on someone other than me. Best wishes to Mayor Menino on a rapid recovery.

Not the Phoenix's closing, but your column, Yvonne.

Comment on: Standing up for car-free development in Boston - Opinion - The Boston Globe
Posted 03/12/2013 04:54:34 EDT
I think the concern that residents will have cars anyway and try to park them on the street is a very real one.

@PL, many good stories are hiding in plain sight. Terrific job by Northeastern alumnus Cal Borchers.
Comment on: Gambling developer considers site near Liberty Tree Mall in Danvers for slots parlor - Danvers - Your Town - Boston.com
Posted 01/22/2013 06:58:37 EST
What a disaster. I hope town officials are prepared to do everything they can to stop this. A slots parlor would be an existential threat to the community.
Comment on: Eight votes for the Hall of Fame - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 12/25/2012 09:30:29 EST
Totally disagree on Clemens and Bonds. Glad you're giving Schilling some love. You're right: Without Schill, the Red Sox still would be without a post-1918 title.
Comment on: Leaving the stage isnât easy - Opinion - The Boston Globe
Posted 12/02/2012 09:13:20 EST
If Mariano Rivera starts serving up meatballs, he'll still be the greatest closer ever. And if Tom Menino hasn't made a good recovery a couple of months from now, he'll still have plenty of time to ma more »
Comment on: Chick-fil-A critics should confront fast-food chain with love - Opinion - The Boston Globe
Posted 07/29/2012 11:23:55 EDT
Jennifer, Northeastern (my employer) did not ban Chick-fil-A. It rescinded an invitation. We're talking about a closed student center with a limited amount of space. Doesn't it make more sense to give more »
Comment on: Chick-fil-A dust-up is smart politics for Menino - Opinion - The Boston Globe
Posted 07/29/2012 11:18:33 EDT
Tom, I'll skip what you call "legal niceties" (i.e., the Constitution) and go straight to this: Truett did not invent the chicken sandwich. There have been chicken sandwiches as long as there has been more »

Comment on: Mass. should make Amazon pay sales tax - Opinion - The Boston Globe
Posted 04/18/2012 09:03:59 EDT
I'm pretty sure Apple is now charging online sales tax. No reason for Amazon to get a free ride, especially when hard-pressed brick-and-mortar stores aren't exempt. more »
Comment on: Saving Fenway - Opinion - The Boston Globe

Another name that deserves a huge mention: Stephen Mindich, the owner and publisher of the Boston Phoenix, whose building would have been destroyed by the "New Fenway" plan. I was at the Phoenix in th more »
