Comment on: 'Bank of America website problems continue'
Posted 09/30/2011 08:05:41 EDT
the only reason I use Bank of America is because of it's extensive ATM network. It's very convenient if you travel, particularly out of state. Aside from that, it's an awful bank. Interest rates are i more »

Yukonjack, you chose to be ignorant and wear blinders, and you get called out on it. Boo hoo. You could go to pride and see what it really is about. But that would dispel the stereotypes and that scar more »

Most of the criticism comes from isolated hermits who have never been to a Gay Pride festival. All they know is what they see on Fox News, which purposely highlights the stereotypes to stoke their wor more »

Posted 05/31/2011 09:48:17 EDT
The comments that I find most offensive are from the apoligists like Brookline Tom. Coming to the defense of thugs in the name of race, protecting them from the evil white man. What makes you think th more »
Comment on: 'High-achieving Asian-Americans are being shut out of top schools'
Posted 04/16/2011 06:04:19 EDT
It's amazing how schools preach about diversity but force everyone into 4 racial categories. I prefer to identify as Irish American, not "white", which was the only check box offered me, so I checked more »

Comment on: 'The Francophilia effect'
Posted 04/03/2011 07:11:32 EDT
It's sad but true: life in American suburbs is very soulless, sterile. Predictable. It's engrained in the American psyche that everything we have here is the best and the rest of the world is inferior more »

I always find it interesting that Legacy Place didn't factor mass transit into its design. Even though train and bus routes run along the property. Also, a lot of employees take mass transit to get th more »

What is ironic is that even though the people in recent news from Libya, Tunisia and Egypt are all African, in the United States they would not be considered "African-American". more »
Comment on: 'MBTA considers changes to parking lot fees'
Posted 02/20/2011 09:38:56 EST
Reducing parking lots fees? Sounds like supply and demand. Someone at the MBTA must have finally finished their Business 101 course. As for collecting the fees, you don't need to spend millions on fan more »

New Hampshire is a state that is 99% white. It amazes me much libertarian thinking changes once you add minorities to the mix. Let's keep it real here. Do these NH republicans want Blacks and Hispanic more »

Basically the New Hampshire legislators see escalating the conflict as the solution. The only thing that would make me want to carry a gun is knowing someone else is carrying a gun. more »
Comment on: 'In suburbs south of Boston, populations change little'
Posted 01/09/2011 10:53:07 EST
The problem with this article is that is basically defines "diversity" as the number of non-whites. "White" includes various, diverse ethnic groups that contribute to diversity, Irish-American, Italia more »

Shopping malls have a limited life span. Today's premier shopping center is tomorrow's ghetto mall. Once a brand spanking new mall opens up down the street, everyone abandons the mall where they used more »

Success happens with mixed use developments like that proposed for Quincy Center. Stand alone shopping centers are a thing of the past. Everyone abandons the current malls for the new ones: just look more »
