NAMEUNKNOWN07/05/14 10:17 PMHow do you define "world class".Um . . . Paris, London, New York, Tokyo, etc. How surprising that you should ask.

Dan is wrong to say that Boston is a world class city (please, has he ever been outside the US?), but he is correct about hosting the Olympics here. It is a ridiculous idea. The conversation should be more »

Comment on: Dayâs ordinary beauty A sea of normalcy drowns out memories of 2013 Marathon horror - Metro - The Boston Globe
Posted 04/22/2014 06:57:19 EDT
I agree with CSson. It's a ridiculous comparison, a real stretch of the imagination to mention these two events in the same column. It is also true that the "terrible beauty" emerged only after the Br more »

"Ortiz made $15 million last season, and is on the books for another $15 million this season. Sometimes athletes just canât win." Gasper really did write this. I wonder if he re-reads his copy bef more »
Comment on: Contract extension for David Ortiz makes no sense for Sox - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 01/28/2014 08:00:25 EST
I'm bummed about this. I just spent 90 bucks in the Red Sox souvenir store for an Ortiz jersey for my daughter. They only carry two current players' jerseys (Ortiz and Pedroia) because, as the salesla more »

Thanks for writing this fitting tribute. As Paul Simon has stated elsewhere, I can't think of any duo whose voices complemented one another's so beautifully. Their music is timeless.

Shribman was the Globe's finest writer. I wish we could still read his columns on a regular basis.

Boras is a negotiator. Do we really have to get his views on topics that are outside his professional experience? Go interview the average baseball fan on these questions. It make for more interesting more »
Comment on: Book review: âSimple Dreams: A Musical Memoirâ by Linda Ronstadt - Books - The Boston Globe
Posted 09/17/2013 06:30:32 EDT
I'm saddened to learn of the silencing of one of the great voices of our time. Not everyone will agree, but I think Ronstadt at her best belongs in a league with very few singers (Streisand, Whitney H more »

Great column, Kevin. I saw the man once about six years ago in a pub in Temple Bar. He was with friends and it was crowded, but no one made a fuss and it was lovely to see how he was given the space t more »

A great ending to a column that speaks to those of us who have reached a certain age. Perhaps not an easy thing to write about, but Scott does it so well here.

I think this tendency to standardize the emotional response to personal loss wildly misses the point that each situation is different for countless reasons. And now, a word from NPR: In the news today more »

Thank you for writing this. What is this need to label and diagnose every experience? It suggests an understanding when there is none.

It seems like each year the Globe publishes a story on Veterans Day that gives one pause to reflect on the humanity and self-sacrifice of individuals even amid the horrors of war. These stories need t more »

My wife and I also watched this series maybe six or seven years ago and were captivated by it. I'm pretty sure the subjects were 49 in the last episode that we watched. I had forgotten about it, so it more »

A couple of pitchers could go work for Perdue, and make room for a return of Derek and Pedro. Anyone know what Bob Stanley is doing these days? more »
