Comment on: Massachusetts health insurers, swamped with new federal taxes and fees, post first-quarter losses - Business - The Boston Globe
Posted 05/16/2014 04:51:43 EDT
Smc123, what happens to that $2500 savings when your premium hike is more than that? I happen to like the ACA for the same reasons as other boomers: no discrimination on pre-existing conditions, keep more »
Comment on: Wake, memorial service planned for slain N.H. officer - Metro - The Boston Globe
Posted 05/16/2014 10:42:32 EDT
So why was a 47-year old man living in an over-55 community? With his parents, who were apparently victims of his abuse. I've heard of married couples who cannot move in to this type of housing beca more »

Well, duh. Could you maybe put in benches that seat more than one? (And avoid the lawsuit after an elderly person stops to rest and slides off of it?)

I now live in Waltham but used to live in Newton. The report of comments made at this meeting confirm my suspicions of Newton-NIMBY. Yes, Waltham provides services to homeless people, and willingly. more »

Comment on: Boston area tech recruiters battle for talent - Business - The Boston Globe

If only real people would read resumes and cover letters. Instead, they crunch them through their filters and reject a lot of very talented engineers, simply because a resume includes one tool or prog more »
Comment on: Medicaid expansion a tough sell to governors of both parties - Nation - The Boston Globe

For once it's not the Globe's fault, but the parent's: Correction: July 12, 2012 Because of an editing error, an earlier version of this article contained a headline, appearing on the home page of NYT more »

I realize this is very late after the original article, but I just read that Hearth Wood Fired Bread is going to be available at the Waltham Farmer's Market. I can't wait! more »
Comment on: School abuse fears not reported - Metro - The Boston Globe
Posted 12/16/2011 02:06:20 EST
So the fact that the school did not report the alleged abuse indicates that the principal did his/her own investigation and determined what? That there was no abuse? That the student was not believabl more »
Comment on: 'The inside story of Keurig's rise to a billion-dollar coffee empire'
Posted 08/08/2011 01:39:12 EDT
No way is the word Keurig Danish. Dutch maybe? Perhaps someone confused two European languages beginning with the letter "D" and spoken by few people. I can look up "keurig" in Babel Fish and find tha more »
Comment on: 'Advocates fight nursing home cuts'
Posted 06/16/2011 01:07:02 EDT
So part of the issue is who should absorb the cost. Seems like if the nursing home does not have to dress, feed, or bathe the patient (it's an empty bed), then the state should not have to pay the ful more »

"Coloroso said the judge should order them to apologize individually to Princeâs family. âThen, they can truly get on with their own lives,ââ she said." I hope that "getting on with their live more »
Comment on: 'Don’
Posted 03/08/2011 12:38:13 EST
Rather than "out-educate," we should focus on "right-sizing" our K-12 system. Other advanced nations have done this and have produced workforces that have the appropriate level of education. Not every more »
Comment on: Slippery slope to nanny state - The Boston Globe
Posted 02/04/2011 12:26:14 EST
Thanks, Scot, I needed that. Was roundly trounced when I complained about my City-which-shall-remain-unnamed making reverse 911 calls at 7:30 on a SUNDAY morning to warn us that the roads were slick. more »
Comment on: Tuition lost on the techno-dependent - The Boston Globe
Posted 09/27/2010 09:35:00 EDT
Some colleges are getting it. At St. John's in Annapolis, it is considered rude to use any type of electronic device while in the company of others. If you're with people, you are expected to be engag more »

No surprises here, this is how state government works. Did Braintree pick up the phone to ask, "what happened to our application for a complaint"? Did the State police pick up the phone to ask for a c more »

Comment on: A false choice in health care battle - The Boston Globe
Posted 11/18/2009 01:03:49 EST
I would like to get back to literal terms, and make the conservatives honor their commitments. (And btw I am a pro-choice independent.) Call it abortion, not "reproductive health services," and take c more »
Comment on: 'Vineyarders pressed by health costs'
Posted 08/25/2009 03:28:48 EDT
Thanks for the actual data, Ms. Thurber. I suggest that one reason your gross seems low is that your employer is picking up a large tab for your health insurance. Whether that proportion is 75% or som more »
Posted 08/25/2009 02:14:36 EDT
Jmfi, my point is that you seem to have purposely chosen 2 of the most expensive policies available through the Connector, declared them unaffordable, then use that as your argument against health ins more »
Posted 08/25/2009 01:07:13 EDT
Here's my issue: the Globe apparently does not check anyone's arithmetic. According to her, Mrs. Thurber's family shares a $48,000 annual health insurance premium with her school system employer. She more »
