@November-6: You're a world-class cut-and-paster. Thanks for the blizzard of stats and the market report. The Dow's also up more than 8.5% over three months ago.

Sorry, Republicans, for this inconvenient truth.

@gotham77: Good, informative posts. Read them fast, though, and they make you sound like you're pounding double espressos and chewing on chocolate-coated beans! Love coffee too. Trader Joe's sells a w more »

Wow. It's already been said by someone in the story and probably repeated by many of the 90-odd posters here, but what a sad retreat. Public transport is supposed to be the best (sometimes only) optio more »

It'll be an annoyance for many who just can't pay right now. But you've gotta love all the righteous righties piling on the president for trying to collect money owed the US government. Wasn't this sa more »

How unfortunate that it looks like every other cruise ship: stacked to the max with cabins so that it resembles an apartment block with a hull. more »

Uh-Os indeed. 0 and 1 so far for the series. It sort of worked to add the question mark on the headline. But editors should do that on the home page too. It's a little incongruous under the shot of a more »

I do wish my town had acted by now on my repeated pleas over the past few months to deal with the enormous silver maple whose deadwood limbs overhang my house. It has been established that it's a town more »
Comment on: 'Buffett’
Posted 08/24/2011 11:03:59 EDT
I don't follow the column's logic. This common, knee-jerk retort that Buffett should just "write a check" is a weak one. Jacoby even seems to acknowledge that. Buffett's suggesting a federal policy ch more »

Nice little piece. First time I saw Myopia play was in the late '70s/early '80s up in central New York State against American polo legend Pete Bostwick and his sons (Village Farms). I think Argentine more »

Nice piece. It's too bad Romney can't stake out the radical middle and admit that he's not ashamed of what he did on health care in Mass. But the politic process would be too nuanced for the US electo more »

Being explored off Maine coast too -- tidal power. Turbines on the seabed would be out of sight, and they appear not to be a hazard to marine life. I think someone on here has posted the link. more »
