Posted 04/15/2014 07:51:26 EDT
âLowell is a strong institution,â Robinson said. âItâs banished the competition in its market. For Tufts to form a relationship with Lowell is a good move for Tufts because it has had difficul more »
Comment on: Political push for raw, unpasteurized milk is increasing access, but illnesses are up, too - Nation - The Boston Globe
Posted 04/14/2014 08:55:32 EDT

The only reason there is a monopoly in the city of Boston is because Menino refused to allow Verizon FIOS to build. A much better option would have been to allow competition which would have resulted more »

Comment on: Somervilleâs new high-end Assembly Row will have room for those with lower incomes - North - The Boston Globe
Posted 03/30/2014 01:28:21 EDT
What is frustrating about these types of places is that they are often advertised as places you can "live, work and play". The people who work there in these low wage jobs can't possibly afford to l more »
Comment on: Popcorn Time is panic time for Hollywood - Business - The Boston Globe
Posted 03/27/2014 02:29:07 EDT
Another half baked tech article from Bray. The service has already been shut down. Sure you can get the software elsewhere but bittorrent has existed for a decade. There isn't much "new" about this more »

Why the heck does it cost $6 to RENT a movie On Demand? It didn't even cost that much at Blockbuster and they had MUCH higher costs. The movie industry is getting exactly what it deserves.
Comment on: FBI investigating possible criminal involvement in Everett land where Wynn wants to build casino - Metro - The Boston Globe
Posted 11/21/2013 10:01:51 EST
I really hope this sinks the deal. A casino doesn't belong in Everett.
Comment on: TVs get smarter, but not smartersmart enough - Business - The Boston Globe
Posted 11/21/2013 10:00:03 EST
A Smart TV is a huge waste of money. Buy a cheap Roku. They are as low as $50 most of the time. It does a LOT more than any of these expensive Smart TV's will ever do.

Posted 11/20/2013 11:09:40 EST
Oh stop it Shirley. This is an industry that preys on poor people. It's not tough enough. MA residents have spoken. They don't want a casino.
Comment on: Food stamp cuts taking hold for Massachusetts families as stimulus boost expires - Nation - The Boston Globe
Posted 11/18/2013 09:24:14 EST
Really? A lousy $36 a month? Many hard working people have lost a LOT more than that these past few years. How much money will this reporter lose when The Globe finally goes under?
Comment on: Conn. woman loses arm in pit bull attack - Metro - The Boston Globe
Posted 11/13/2013 12:18:12 EST
The pit bull advocates will certainly claim that this wasn't a pit bull and the media got the story wrong.
Comment on: Domestic workers testify at State House hearing for bill of rights - Business - The Boston Globe
Posted 11/13/2013 12:16:44 EST
This will certainly backfire and block illegal immigrants from obtaining employment. Great job!
Comment on: Disabled trains cause delays on Green, Red and Orange Lines this morning - Metro - The Boston Globe
Posted 11/08/2013 01:44:14 EST
It's funny that the T apologizes publicly. I was in this mess this morning and the only thing I heard from T employees was them YELLING at riders to move away from the doors. They have no respect at more »

Posted 11/08/2013 01:41:34 EST
Good for Channel 5 for not always going after "eye candy" like most of the local stations....I'm looking at you Channel 7. It's nice to see the respect they have for these more experienced anchors ev more »
Comment on: What if we legalized gambling, but end up with no casinos? That could happen, only in Massachusetts - Business - The Boston Globe
Posted 11/08/2013 11:58:45 EST
The Seaport is full of people with money. They don't want it. They only want it in places without money like East Boston, Revere and Everett.
Comment on: It couldnât be closer â mayoral candidate wins by two votes in town of Amesbury - Metro - The Boston Globe
Posted 11/07/2013 12:35:17 EST
Of course they should recount.
Comment on: - Metro - The Boston Globe
Posted 11/07/2013 09:38:51 EST
I think this just goes to show that most people don't want casinos. These projects keeps failing over and over again. Time to let it die...
Comment on: Laboring under a cloud - Metro - The Boston Globe
Posted 11/05/2013 04:42:42 EST
I'm so tired of everyone complaining about how the poor unions get picked on. I don't know a union worker that makes less money than I do. These folks are raking in the big bucks. Why don't they sto more »
Comment on: With a sales tax on purchases, online retailers lose advantage - Opinion - The Boston Globe
Posted 11/05/2013 03:32:34 EST
Making returns is hit or miss in retail stores. Some stores have horrific return policies and will treat you like a criminal for returning something, or flat out refusing the return. This actually h more »
Comment on: Suffolk Downsâs well-drawn makeover leaves too many open questions - Editorials - The Boston Globe
Posted 11/01/2013 01:46:41 EDT
Jam-Packed? Have you ever been to this neighborhood? It's like a ghost town!
Comment on: Suffolk Downs has no clothes - Editorials - The Boston Globe
Posted 10/31/2013 11:06:36 EDT
Why on earth would Suffolk Downs partner with a company that is $24 BILLION in debt? This whole thing is very fishy.....
Comment on: Take the train into the city? No, thanks - Opinion - The Boston Globe
Posted 10/28/2013 02:21:01 EDT
I have to agree with with the writer here. I used to take the Newburyport train everyday into Boston. The monthly payment that I handed over to the MBTA was more than my BMW payment. Now I live in S more »

Comment on: MBCR makes case for renewed contract, even in face of long-flagging ridership - Metro - The Boston Globe
Posted 10/22/2013 09:40:00 EDT
The Legislature doesn't use the MBTA. They pull up in their Cadillacs and park in the top secret State House parking garage. They couldn't care less about fixing it.
