The cover of the Sunday Globe included an article about Kraft's sneakers. While there has long been soft news on the front page, this is just silly.

Posted 11/07/2014 08:37:25 EST
Let's hope Bob has a quick and thorough recovery. I have always enjoyed his reporting. As a side, it impossible to be "cautiously optimistic." It's hard to believe a phrase like that gets by an editor more »

There is also little to no enforcement of the other Public Garden rules by the park rangers. Besides skateboarders, there are aggressive bicyclists, off-leash dogs and sunbathers lying on the grass. T more »

Comment on: For restaurant owners, striking the right noise level is key - Food & dining - The Boston Globe
Posted 04/23/2014 01:49:09 EDT
I've never heard anyone say "it feels dead" without any noise so I have no idea where this notion came from. The real culprit is often the sound level of music in the dining area. The sound gets loude more »

For many office workers, a lot of work gets done before and after traditional core office hours, particularly with e-mail and cell phones. What time you show up may not be the best yardstick to measur more »
Comment on: Why donât more Boston fans root for UConn?
Posted 04/07/2014 07:16:09 EDT
Connecticut has a professional sports franchise: the WNBA's Connecticut Sun. The Sun gets even less than the Whalers did, which is a shame.
