Comment on: Smearing the Tea Party - The Boston Globe
Posted 08/03/2011 12:50:21 EDT
Jacoby and others only need to look at the conservative right to note who is doing a ton of name calling. He says ". . . only a matter of time before somebody invokes Adolph Hitler . . . to discredit more »

So the Conservatives and other Republicans want to cut back on government spending, like Medicare? Let's save more funds by not helping those in our country who have lost their homes through our many more »
Comment on: The Huckster in Chief - The Boston Globe

Trump is so trumped up and full of himself that he should implode at some point, hopefully before he goes any further with his rediculous statements about being able to run this country. He wouldn't n more »

Posted 03/21/2011 11:14:12 EDT
The loss of competition & choice to customers far outweighs the so-called "benefits" AT&T and T-Mobile are claiming. This deal should be closely scrutinized by the FCC and turned down. AT&T has terrib more »

We saw this play on Sunday, one of its first performances. It was beautifully done - well acted, interesting story line which you keep thinking about after you've seen it, keenly drawn characters. Go more »

Absolutely terrific series. I wish it were many more episodes than four. This is also a great way to learn about the British social order, manners, customs, dress, and inheritance. more »

S&S has just about the highest prices of any other grocery store in my area. Will only shop there out out of total desperation. Each article is at least $.50 to $2.00 more than in Market Basket and fr more »

Used to be a DD coffee drinker; I've now graduated to Starbucks - real coffee! Their short, dark coffee costs no more than a DD coffee -- and their multi-grain bagles not only cost less, but are much more »
Comment on: OMG Social Security!? - The Boston Globe
Posted 12/29/2010 11:27:49 EST
Ms. Boushey needs to tap into reality regarding those of us in her parents' generation. Many of us collecting SS do NOT have a pension NOR healthy 401k funds to tap into; many of us still need to work more »
Comment on: 'When dining in this economy, should you still split the bill?'

Having had many meals with a "lobster" and dessert person when I ordered a hamburger or chicken; and having had many meals with friends who order 2-3 glasses of wine while I happily drink water, and h more »

Brown apparently thinks he's Tom Cruise, with lifting one hand and then the other when he's making a case to cut off unemployment benefits. Cutting benefits from the unemployed while the economy is ma more »

At last - a positive story about the economy! Re residential real estate sales: there are communities, at least in the metro boston area, in which the number of sales this year have increased compared more »
Comment on: The new normal: living alone - The Boston Globe
Posted 11/10/2010 12:19:22 EST
Of course there are pros & cons to living alone, much of them relating to your individual circumstances. When my "significant other" and I decided he needed to move out, I was overcome with joy. Bette more »

I'm a mystery junkie. Saw the new Sherlock -- loved it! It's very fresh and interesting. Also thought the review was right on. Looking forward to the next episodes. more »
Comment on: 'For some dog owners, when pets are left off the guest list, the party’

While I'm thankful that my Siamese cat allows me to share her 8 room house with her, I'd never think of asking if I could bring her to a social event. Whenever I have guests, they are forewarned that more »

Housing sales crash -- plunge? Adjectives, to keep folks reading the article, like these are what contribute to buyers' reluctance to move forward. Consumers need to keep in mind that all real estate more »

hapticz: unless you know first hand about this family's situation, it's unwise and not fair to remaining family members to make such comments. And if you do know first hand about the family's situatio more »

I read Brown's comments in his email. I think these were condescending to a women who is intelligent and smart -- regardless of what he, or anyone else, is trying to accomplish with fear fundraising, more »
Comment on: 'Homeowners need more, some say'

Let's get real. For the majority, mortgage payment problems haven't arisen because homeowners have taken lush vacations and bought plasma TVs. Many homeowners have fallen behind because they've lost t more »
Comment on: 'Brown, Maddow wage political war over fund-raising letter'
Posted 03/27/2010 11:59:55 EDT
Think about it: if Mr. Brown can't vet stories like this before he sends out requests for funds, and is condescending to a very bright and intelligent woman, can the voters really rely on him or trust more »

Saw the play; we enjoyed it and laughed, without being cued. The audience also liked it. Although the play is still being smoothed out and the Boston accents were not quite Boston accents, the play is more »

Posted 02/20/2010 12:57:41 EST
This is a fabulous show with a ton of soul. Great music, great production, great acting, many touches of humour, compassion, and sadness. I often find it's best to ignore much of what reviewers say. D more »
