Comment on: Nelsons sweetens Symphony Hall return with the opera â yes, opera â âSalomeâ - Music - The Boston Globe
Posted 02/01/2014 09:42:23 EST
Interesting... I look forward to this. I'm not sure I agree that an orchestra can be ''too refined" in this music. I remember hearing the most exquisitely played and conducted Elektra in Vienna with A more »

Posted 05/29/2013 11:53:06 EDT
So, I'm trying to understand: There's much talk about marriage protecting the rights of children. Does that mean that straight-couples without children should lose their marriage liscence? I find your more »

Comment on: On balance, the Iraq war was worth it - - Boston.com
Posted 03/20/2013 09:06:19 EDT
Uh-oh, here come the ALL CAPS! No need to yell. Your comment suggests that you make a connection between Iraq and 9/11. Have we still not put that one to rest?

Posted 03/19/2013 09:41:33 EDT

Comment on: Downtown Crossing pushcarts to leave soon - Boston.com
Posted 03/09/2013 08:12:51 EST

Comment on: Gun Control Now - Metro - The Boston Globe
Posted 12/15/2012 08:03:22 EST
Once again, I see in too many of these comments a greater concern for the 'unborn fetus' than our children out in the world. The pro-lifers and pro-choicers will never agree and this issue has no plac more »
