I no longer believe any of the polls- they vary so much and have been wrong so many times the last few years- I wish the media would just knock it off re: polling and do 2-3 max- enough with the ridic more »

Thula- I've sent complaints twice into MBCR in the past- never heard a word back nor do they return a call. Someone passed out on my wife's train this morning due to overcrowding (everyone had to stan more »

The MBCR has been awful. The service in the last 10 years has gone downhill year after year. Only now that they are in danger of losing the contract do they have "great new ideas". Too bad- give someo more »

Comment on: 'Prosecutors to investigate police shooting'
Posted 02/28/2012 10:59:47 EST
A man shoots someone, and almost kills him. In public. Then he kills himself. In a public space. And there's nothing more to investigate? Huh? As a parent, I feel badly for those children of the cop f more »
Comment on: 'Red Sox unity, dedication dissolved during epic late-season collapse'

Is this a big surprise to anyone who has had the displeasure to have to use the commuter rail to get to work? What once was a fairly reliable and reasonable priced alternative to driving has become an more »
