Comment on: Bring back the gun buyback - Opinion - The Boston Globe
Posted 03/15/2014 01:19:45 EDT
Gee, Guy, how many cars does one person need? Or houses? Or money? How is this anyone's business?
Posted 03/15/2014 10:15:17 EDT
Only the military and police can legally own automatic weapons. That law has been like that for decades.

I hope Mr. Macdonald gets plenty of publicity, and has the time and place prominently promoted. That way, I can stand outside and offer the people a lot more than a $50 gift card from Stop and Shop.
Comment on: âPhantom Gourmetâ brothers buy Mendon drive-in - Business - The Boston Globe
Posted 03/15/2014 08:18:21 EDT
My sons still talk about how much fun they had at the Mendon Drive In back in the mid 90's, pajama clad, watching movies sitting on the hood of the old Suburban, staying up way past bedtime. Glad to more »
Comment on: Is libertarianism taking hold of GOP? - Opinion - The Boston Globe
Posted 03/11/2014 12:11:24 EDT
JLErwin3, interesting comment. I'm not a fan of either party--in fact, I don't see much difference between them. We still have the corporate kleptocracy that existed under Bush, which he inherited f more »
Posted 03/11/2014 12:04:48 EDT
OETKB, I agree with you. I believe that this is about individuals and how they think the nation should be governed. Do they want government to regulate or control more areas of American life, or do more »
Comment on: State shouldnât limit the number of medical marijuana licenses - Opinion - The Boston Globe
Posted 02/16/2014 02:57:54 EST
Interesting question you ask, Serious. If the issue was simply whether or not marijuana should be legal, it should not matter if the consumer grew his own weed or bought it at a pharmacy or liquor st more »
Comment on: The man who didnât want to be president - Opinion - The Boston Globe
Posted 02/16/2014 02:45:06 EST
Geo, time to look at what is actually going on. Neither party is willing to compromise. Compromise implies a willingness of each side to change their stance. President Obama, back in 2009, simply s more »

Tom, I read your columns frequent, and rarely agree with your opinions, but in this case, I do. Just wondering---- what exactly is the purpose of limiting the number of licenses in the market, not j more »
Comment on: Christopher L. Gasper: - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 02/11/2014 12:08:22 EST
Does anyone truly care what any player's sexual preference is? Why make it an issue on the sports page? If the subject is worthy of discussion, the editorial page is a good place to do so. Like man more »
Comment on: Chris Christie: A slow fade? - Opinion - The Boston Globe
Posted 01/11/2014 06:07:57 EST
I'm not a Christie fan by any means, but he certainly would not be the first petty, vindictive bully in the White House. Seems to me, there is one living there now.
Comment on: Patriotsâ kicking history is a three-part story - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 01/10/2014 07:42:12 EST
How did you overlook John Smith ? He played for the Patriots for 10 years, made the Pro Bowl in 1980. He kicked the field goal in the infamous Snowplow game vs. Miami.
Comment on: Airline dissatisfaction: Peace in the legroom wars, for a price - Editorials - The Boston Globe
Posted 12/30/2013 11:19:49 EST
How about a free market solution? I fly JetBlue as often as I can. All of the seats have more legroom than many other carriers on the routes I fly. In addition, I can pay a few more dollars for a s more »
Comment on: Red Sox werenât comfortable offering Jacoby Ellsbury as much as Yankees did - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 12/04/2013 06:34:34 EST
Jacoby, I guess you are worth $150MM if you can get it. Good for you. But also, good for Ben Cherington for holding the line and not giving such a huge contract to a 3 year old speedster. Can't wait more »
Comment on: Jacoby Ellsbury leaves Red Sox for Yankees and seven-year, $153 million deal - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 12/04/2013 06:28:31 EST
Jacoby, good for you. You are one of my favorite players, and hate to see you go. I stop short of wishing you well, however. Now that you are a member of the Evil Empire, I'm trying to work up a g more »

Comment on: Jose Iglesias, Xander Bogaerts, and the tricks of the trade - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 10/20/2013 08:33:54 EDT
Bob, after Iggy's error in Game 6, which led to Victorino's grand slam, perhaps Ben Cherington will get a pass on the Peavy-Iglesias trade.
Comment on: With todayâs low wages, why work? - Letters - The Boston Globe
Posted 09/23/2013 10:33:59 EDT
Mr. Raymond, you hit the nail on the head. Why work if minimum wage jobs like those at McD or Walmart are the only realistic possibilities? And that, sir, is precisely the problem. Why work a low p more »

Comment on: Private detectives see holes in Patriotsâ handling of Aaron Hernandez - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 08/25/2013 05:40:36 EDT
As Americans, have we become SO accustomed to being spied upon and so unconcerned with our privacy that it's OK for employers to dig into the private lives of employees. I wonder how many sportswrite more »

Posted 06/11/2013 09:04:54 EDT
I'll take my privacy, than you very much. I believe that the Federal government has greatly overstepped its authority in monitoring all phone, cell, and online communications. There are more instan more »

Posted 03/20/2013 08:51:07 EDT
Jeff, I usually agree with your writings, but in this case, I'm with Southshore Rick. I was one of the 30% who did not support the war in 2003, and remain opposed today. Where is it written in the Co more »
