Comment on: Hallmarkâs ugly sweater ornament stirs controversy - Nation - The Boston Globe
Posted 11/01/2013 08:08:13 EDT
I taught my students to ignore Hallmark's slogan " If you care enough to send the very best." Eleven year olds could understand the emotional, illogical soft sell propaganda. Seriously, if you care e more »

Dan Shaunessy is a great reporter who knows how to keep us informed and entertained. Sports help us escape and take the world not seriously. Unfortunately, there will be enough hate around found in more »

This is the single biggest danger to every one of our children. Parents and teachers need to listen intently, respond quickly and possibly save a child's life. Social media technology allows bullies i more »
Comment on: On TV, violence sells - Opinion - The Boston Globe

We are hypnotically drawn to fictional violence and sexual violence, yet shocked by our very infrequent encounter with these evils in real life. It fascinates and horrifies us that there our folks amo more »
Comment on: Attleboro students denied food for lack of money in their lunch accounts - Metro - The Boston Globe
Posted 04/05/2013 06:33:59 EDT
School is suppose to teach . The child did not starve because friends shared food - they always do. The overheated article misses the life lesson taught: there is no such thing as a free lunch.
Posted 04/05/2013 06:25:51 EDT
As the article states, the food service company sends the parents notice after their account is overdrawn and the child has eaten five free meals.

Posted 03/17/2013 09:09:28 EDT
Precisely, MNMoore, Lynch has been on the wrong side in too many issues. Overall his views do not represent Massachusett's values. Vote for Ed Markey.

I agree completely. Public education funded by all taxpayers is the portal to economic opportunity and social equality and an absolute obligation. Even those with no stake or faith in our children's f more »
Comment on: Charter schools: Results too good to ignore - Boston.com
Posted 03/08/2013 08:31:12 EST
Collective bargaining began in 1967 and that professionals with higher salaries weren't the first to be let go because of fiscal austerity. Parochial, private, and charter schools seem like an easy a more »

For every dozen competent, sensitive child-centered educators there are a few, very few, terrible teachers. At tax time or anti-authoritarian rants it is easy for anonymous bloggers to bash a public s more »

Comment on: Carnival CEO Micky Arison chooses the Heat over the heat - Editorials - The Boston Globe
Posted 02/16/2013 06:52:58 EST
Because he gets the big bucks, he should have to appear in sack cloth and do penance for a situation behind his control? Too many human interest stories - aren't all that fascinating. So, he watched more »
