About Me: I grew up in the Boston area, and have lived here most of my life. A note about my posts on Manny: I admit I was wrong about him given what happened with the steroids, and was somewhat naive in defending him. I defended him because it bothers me when fans scapegoat one guy for a team's problem.

    I wasn't the best chore person as a kid, but my parents made me do stuff, and those practiced methods -whether doing the dishes, cleaning the bathroom, yardwork - come in very handy as in adult when y more »

    The overallproblem with this country is not big government. The problem, as I said in an earlier post, is 1) 9/11, 2) Wars, and 3) Economy crash - which became a crash b/c of 1 and 2. Trying to blame more »

    I work in big business - almost everyone is out of the parking lot by 5:15. Don't work harder than the public sector or adacamedia - that is a lie. Some are more driven - but only out of fear - e.g. b more »

    This comment here below in quotes - that has received by far the most recommended votes for this thread - this is a very hurtful comment - and it makes me sad it gets the most votes. The comment is no more »

    On September 11, 2001, this country was attached and thousands of citizens killed, and terrorist organizations threatened our country with more of these horrible events. Since that time we have been i more »

    I thought Perovic was effective and entertaining as a playmaker. If he can hold up, him and Joseph may be a good midfield. more »

    My problem with the internet is its not properly regulated. There's a ton of ways one can use it to commit crimes like assault, slander, fraud. It can be very unhealthy for kids. We don't know yet if more »

    I find it disheartening to read comments here so critical of Obama. It was the Bush Administration that sent troops into both Iraq and Afghanistan. And the economy crashed prior to Obama's administrat more »

    Never watched AI before this season, but watched it to follow Siobhan - I liked her manner. Enjoyed her excellent performances, and that she seemed to be trying to keep it real-that was inspiring for more »

    Posted 02/09/2010 02:19:32 EST

    I think there are positives to a suit like this. A decision will be made that will be the law going forward. And, more importantly, brokers will feel pressure to be more honest. more »

    That's a fun area - good for young people. There needs to be a subway stop or two there - not that silver line bus stop. If there was a subway stop to South Station, it would thrive. more »

    First, hog isn't the right word. Hogging the ball in any sport is bad-no good coach encourages players to hog the ball. Writer probably wasn't good at sports. Second, if one watches the top leagues in more »

    I enjoyed watching Heaps. He always played hard and with emotion, and cared a lot about the team and fans. I knew I'd be getting my money's worth with him playing. Great job Heaps and good look with y more »

    The problem with this very high fine and all the publicity is another lost hiker may not call for help for fear of the fine/bad publicity, and end up dying. In my opinion, it would be better with a sm more »

    Don't think the Globe should have a front page article based on someone's opinion who only was a lab partner of the person, and ended up dropping out of med school. Sounded like she didn't really know more »
