Comment on: Baby boomers who moved on may be ready to give marijuana a second chance - Business - The Boston Globe
Posted 04/13/2014 04:06:04 EDT
I think the lazy and spaced-out percentage is higher, but the same can be said of booze. Personally, I do not care for it, but I don't think it should be illegal...or encouraged.

Let me offer another perspective: Papi comes from the Dominican Republic, which is poor and had never gotten anywhere playing by the white man's rules. Maybe, he's gonna take as much money as he can p more »

Good column, Dan. I have but one request: win another damned championship this year. I don't think that's too much to ask. Signed - typical Red Sox fan....
Comment on: No reason for Jerry Remy to lose his job - Sports - The Boston Globe

Parenting is the hardest job there is. There is nothing a parent would not do for their child. I have great sympathy for the Remys and hope they hang in there. I fault Jerry for nothing. The judicial more »
Comment on: Public pensions are eating taxpayers alive - Opinion - The Boston Globe
Posted 03/23/2014 06:17:22 EDT
There's two sides to this story. There's the 20 years and out government employees in Massachusetts, who 'retire' in their 40s and there's widespread disability abuse. Indeed, that should rooted out. more »
Comment on: J.D. Salingerâs psychological catastrophe - Opinion - The Boston Globe
Posted 03/23/2014 02:23:23 EDT
I am surprised you did not mention the excellent PBS American Master's documentary about Salinger although your account of his brief first marriage is more detailed. One factoid I remember is that he more »

Comment on: Rajon Rondo needs to better understand how his actions affect his standing with Celtics - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 02/27/2014 07:11:01 EST
I think this leading to free agency if he doesn't get traded. I don't see much love for the Celtics from Rondo. He could end up in Miami. That said, I am fan. He's intelligent and immensely talented, more »

Comment on: Ortiz contract request fair, not foul - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 02/06/2014 06:33:53 EST
I could not agree more. David Ortiz is paid up in full. Without him, we'd still be fighting The Curse. Give him until 2020 as far as I am concerned.

Comment on: A barely passing grade on the curve - Business - The Boston Globe
Posted 01/30/2014 12:48:38 EST
Worthless gimmick, heh? OK...so much for curved smartphone screens especially when the phone's other features are mediocre. What's your take on curved displays for large TVs for that more "immersive e more »
Comment on: - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 01/30/2014 09:45:03 EST
I am not buying this caving for a higher draft pick thing. I was at the game...they were trying to win as they should every game. Sullinger, who had a terrific game, made the point about trying to win more »
Comment on: Contract extension for David Ortiz makes no sense for Sox - Sports - The Boston Globe

Take it back for a Pedroia jersey.
Posted 01/28/2014 06:42:06 EST
This is your formula, Dan. The guy is a jerk for speaking his mind, but let's acknowledge his accomplishments first. It was the same with the Patriot - Denver coverage. You wrote they suck and will lo more »

Comment on: Bill Belichick obviously despises Wes Welker - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 01/20/2014 07:51:57 EST
I don't get it, Dan. For the past week, you've done NOTHING but beat up on the Pats as an aging franchise that has fallen and can't get up. It's tiresome, off the mark and unoriginal. You have the sam more »
Comment on: With the game in Denver, Patriots are goners - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 01/15/2014 08:34:38 EST
I hated this column, Dan. Even if you said, they probably are going to lose, that would have been better, but the no hope angle is BS.....as if we really care that YOU, the omniscient, think they are more »
