Comment on: Walsh, Olympic committee must drop ban on criticism
Posted 01/22/2015 06:37:26 EST

Comment on: Cape residents protest NStarâs use of herbicides
Posted 01/20/2015 06:19:58 EST
If the photo is accurate, the workman spraying the herbicide is in violation of using poisonous chemicals that kill honey bees during daylight hours (when they forage). Why not get a herd of goats? more »

At 5:30 this morning the title of the article read: "King had a dream. His children had lawyers an army of lawers." It has been corrected. That was the point of the question. more »

Comment on: Baltimore Orioles going for it in 2014 - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 04/03/2014 07:02:34 EDT
The online edition of The Globe placed this article just over the recap of last night's win over the Orioles. Kind of makes Mr. Shaughnessy look silly. As is he needed any help with that--really? THE more »

Agree. The whole story turns my stomach, the Remy clan makes me sick, the Red Sox disgust me by protecting REM DAWWWG, NESN should be ashamed, the Boston Globe too for allowing the Remy family to air more »
Comment on: For high schoolers with Ivy League dreams, summer has gone from a time to kick back to a time to lean in. - Metro - The Boston Globe
Posted 03/05/2014 10:37:58 EST
That occurred to me as well! It's an industry preying on wealthy, anxious, high-achiever/high expectation parents, not for benefit of college bound kids. Shame!

I don't know if other parents of high school kids felt like hyperventilating when they read this.

Thanks for the nice article but I really don't care about Bobby V's great life. Bad decision from the mucky-mucks. Amazing turn-around this season with a guy who knows how to build a team.
