Comment on: Commuters ride free Friday as T tries to make amends
Posted 04/25/2015 07:29:08 EDT
Whether it was a free fare or school vacation, ridership seemed up to me yesterday. On my commute home, the first green line train passed us by because it was too full. The second one picked us up and more »
Comment on: Cyclist, pedestrian die in crashes in Cambridge, Boston
Posted 03/12/2015 07:42:36 EDT
(Using Code 47's tactics...) So are Boston Drivers. Never mind that there is almost not enough room for cyclists and pedestrians to travel safely, now we can throw cars back into the mix. Cause you kn more »

Most people assume that if you're a childless woman it is easy to make friends because you have "so much free time." But in my 30's and 40's when most women my own age are having and raising their kid more »
Comment on: Anatomy of a winter cyclist How does a cyclist manage in subzero temperatures? A Commuterâs Cold CALculus
Posted 01/09/2015 06:31:09 EST
Personal preference. My husband bought bar mits for winter cycling, I just use a thin ski glove. Below 30, I switch to a thicker one. I would wear the bike pants next to skin though. Let the chamois d more »

There once was a carless city
With winter requiring citizen's gritty
On two wheels they rode
From job to abode
And their obesity was real itty-bitty

You know who rides 30 mph? A pack of pro cyclists in the Tour de France. Bike commuters rarely cycle more than 20 mph and most of them less than 15.

We can debate all day that some cyclists may not obey traffic laws, just as some drivers may not. It has no bearing on this case. Legally each case should be judged independently of other people's act more »

Euro cities were designed before Boston. It's a cultural bias, not a logistical thing.

From a recent speech by John Kerry. But the truth of how we generated the 1990âs economic boom does need to be told. We didnât just cut our way to a balanced budget; we grew our way there. And not more »

While I agree that Odgren now must go to jail, (or a mental hospital preferably). I think that justice would have been better served if mental health services were better and he had received the care more »

Portland, OR established a bottle bill for water bottles a few years ago. I think plastic juice bottles may also have been included. Boston should study whether that law increased the recycling rate. more »

Posted 05/05/2010 10:05:05 EDT
If Odgren was bullied, and it contributed to his mental state and the murder he committed, this law is too late for him. But it could help kids like him in the future. It can help stop other kids from more »
