Comment on: Wynn decision leaves future wide open at Suffolk Downs - Opinion - The Boston Globe
Posted 10/16/2014 09:22:45 EDT
The writer overlooks the almost 7,000 acres in the state which up until now have been dedicated to breeding and raising Thoroughbred horses. With no incentives for Massachusetts-bred horses, these far more »
Comment on: Market Basketâs only solution: Bring back Arthur T. Demoulas - Editorials - The Boston Globe
Posted 08/07/2014 07:33:46 EDT
It looks like Market Basket should become an employee-owned business. Arthur S. could sell off his shares to the 25,000 employees, they can make Artie T. king, and everyone will live happily ever afte more »

Comment on: Yankees rout lifeless Red Sox - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 06/28/2014 02:47:20 EDT
The team has a crying need for offense, so why would they think that signing the 0 for 29 Drew would be the solution? Bogaerts was one of the few guys who was hitting, but since they switched him to t more »

Comment on: Red Sox extend losing streak to nine - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 05/25/2014 05:09:28 EDT
And what does management do? Re-sign the hitless wonder Drew to save them! Obviously, a decent-fielding shortstop is not this team's biggest need. They should have put the money toward signing a third more »
Comment on: Marty Walsh on casinos: Is he playing to win or bluffing? - Business - The Boston Globe
Posted 03/29/2014 03:14:00 EDT
The people of East Boston shot themselves in the foot, now they should have to live with it. The casino is going to be either in Everett or Revere, and either way East Boston will suffer the inconveni more »
Comment on: Contract works well for Red Sox and David Ortiz - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 03/25/2014 01:02:21 EDT
That type of contract is more evidence of how much smarter Ben Cherington is than Theo Epstein.
How many ex-Red Sox are they still paying the salaries of thanks to Epstein?
Comment on: Harvard was game in loss to Michigan State - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 03/23/2014 12:23:48 EDT
I would hope that BC wouldn't make the same mistake they just finished making: Hiring an Ivy League coach because he won a game or two in the NCAA tournament.
Comment on: Donât let Markey hedge on Herbalife - Editorials - The Boston Globe
Posted 03/17/2014 04:12:34 EDT
Really? Markey didn't know who Ackman, the notorious short-seller is? This is Ackman's modus operandi: he shorts a stock and then does whatever he can to bad-mouth it, deservedly or otherwise, to make more »
Comment on: It added up for Russia - Sports - The Boston Globe

There will always be controversy in any event in which there is any subjectivity involved in the scoring.
Ice skating is not meant to be competitive; it is meant to be enjoyed.
Comment on: Allâs fair in love and parking - Metro - The Boston Globe
Posted 02/14/2014 02:37:44 EST
If a person is spending that much time in Cambridge (or any other city) isn't he actually a de facto resident? He's probably using a lot of the local businesses and otherwise contributing to the econo more »
Comment on: Former Mitt Romney campaign chief leading new breed of political combat group - Nation - The Boston Globe
Posted 02/14/2014 02:29:23 EST
Makes you proud to be an American, doesn't it?
This is what our political system has become, everything negative, nothing positive. And it'll get worse before it gets better...

Comment on: Reports of sexual assaults rise on Boston-area college campuses - Metro - The Boston Globe
Posted 02/03/2014 12:20:01 EST
To stop the sexual assaults on campus, first the underage drinking has to be stopped. I think the reasoning behind that is obvious. But no college seems to want to get serious about stopping their stu more »
Comment on: âHEARTBROKEN,â CHRISTIE TRIES TO LIMIT DAMAGE FROM TRAFFIC SCANDAL - Nation - The Boston Globe
Posted 01/10/2014 08:31:53 EST
Even if Christie wasn't involved in setting up this traffic jam, once it was happening wasn't it his responsibility, as governor of the state, to ask why it was happening, investigate, and find out th more »
Comment on: Revere dreams of a casino at Suffolk Downs, but not if East Boston has its way - Business - The Boston Globe
Posted 11/22/2013 10:29:38 EST
Can't the same be said of a casino built in Everett? Won't the surrounding towns, like Chelsea, Medford, Malden and Revere be subject to the same headaches as East Boston would if a casino were built more »

Well, I hope the people who've supported the ban on greyhound racing are happy with this unintended consequence. Now it looks like we are in danger of losing this wonderful breed altogether. Since the more »
Comment on: Ivory seized in Boston part of stockpile crushed in effort to highlight elephant slaughter - Health & wellness - The Boston Globe
Posted 11/15/2013 08:49:26 EST
I'm not sure this is the right thing to do. First, I agree with Mr. Stiles that if you destroy a large stock of ivory, you make the ivory remaining on the endangered animals even more valuable to poac more »
Comment on: Group of business leaders exploring 2024 Boston Olympic bid - Metro - The Boston Globe
Posted 11/12/2013 12:15:55 EST
You'd have to be very naive to think that a cramped place like Boston, with its tired old venues and inadequate transportation system, could support a venture like the Olympics. Obviously, the only pe more »

You can talk about those beards, but it's the David Ortiz show. He's batting .733, and the team batting average is .256. Without Ortiz, the rest of the team is batting .193. Ortiz could break the reco more »

Isn't it the coaching staff's job to make sure that all the players, even the new ones, are up to date on all the new rules?

Comment on: Obama, Republicans escalate rhetoric on shutdown, debt - Nation - The Boston Globe
Posted 10/09/2013 08:45:52 EDT
I have to put most of the blame for the shutdown on Boehner. He controls what's voted on in the House and he could have put an end to the Tea Party's antics. Instead, he caves in to them so that he wo more »

Posted 09/26/2013 09:34:42 EDT
Is this what our Congress was designed for, buffoons and sideshows? Congress has so many silly rules that the minority winds up controlling the majority.
