Comment on: New tests show no evidence of forgery in âGospel of Jesusâs Wifeâ papyrus

Yes, and there is firsthand knowledge of Adam and Eve, too. They were awesome memoirists, apparently. Please. Spare me. So much in the Bible has been edited over the eons, with books removed, and word more »
Comment on: Large fire raging in East Boston
Posted 04/10/2014 02:25:08 EDT
Why park your car in front of a hydrant? There's an 8-alarm blaze raging across the street with the potential to take down an entire block of wooden triple-deckers. Do you really think the firefighter more »
Comment on: Americaâs War on Yoga Pants
Posted 04/10/2014 01:56:58 EDT
Yoga pants are the new sweats. Wearing them in places other than the yoga studio, gym, or other place of physical fitness is pure laziness. I think they are inappropriate for school but not for reason more »

I loathe "business casual." Yes, dressing appropriately, which in this case means wearing a tie, does convey respect for the occasion. And there are also degrees of formality in neckwear. There are wh more »

How can anyone give this comment a thumbs down? Really. I hope they were erroneous clicks.

I'm going with ZeeOff's theory: a second vehicle was involved that got of scot-free. The truck driver could have braked or tried to make an evasive maneuver in response to a clueless driver. (Preoccup more »

Generally, the JP Noonan drivers are very careful. I see their trucks all the time in Chelsea and on Route 1. My possibility: the tanker could have been cut off and had to slam on the brakes as a resu more »

Dear LW, You must be watching way too many reality TV because your problem is very simple and you're blowing it all out of proportion: you just weren't into those guys. Come on, you're only 23. You ar more »

This family obsession must be an intimacy killer.
Posted 08/28/2013 10:52:31 EDT
Someone in the boyfriend's family was likely getting married.
Posted 08/28/2013 10:33:58 EDT
It seems the LW is more concerned with having the boyfriend be part of one big family than with her own relationship with him: "His parents loved me and my parents loved him, and everyone seems to be more »

Two things: first, I suspect that LW makes more than the boyfriend. She says, "I would never ask him to leave his field," which says to me that he's not meeting his earning potential in what she sees more »

Methinks DNA testing for failing to scoop doggie doo is a tad overreaching. What constitutes a real problem? They say the problem is excessive but some people consider one doggie dropping ever as exce more »

He can't be the man of her dreams if he doesn't share her dreams. It's all wishful thinking otherwise and you know how THAT goes: snag the man but attempt to change him afterwards. Or get "accidentall more »

This is a polite way of saying she wants to ignore evertything anyone has posted today.
Posted 07/31/2013 03:03:21 EDT
The LW is not going to come to the realization that the wedding is no longer a good idea today. Clearly we've hit a nerve--which is good. It'll take some time before it sinks in, which I hope will be more »
Posted 07/31/2013 02:52:45 EDT
Not only are the replies unanimous (and even I posted--and I rarely get a chance to post), but there are almost 2000 posts in one day--probably a LL record. Despite the snarkiness, we are concerned fo more »

Dear LW, If someone made you feel foolish, it's probably because the truth is sinking in. It's OK to feel foolish. It beats what you're in for if you marry this guy. The realization that you made a b more »

To clarify: I'll be her family would support her decision to call off the wedding, that is.
Posted 07/31/2013 02:11:02 EDT
OhMyGodOhMyGodOhMyGod. It doesn't matter if she loses the entire cost of the wedding. It's chump change compared to how he's going to clean out her finances, put her through the emotional wringer, and more »

Why on earth is it important that flight attendants be attractive? They are not there for your viewing pleasure.

Patrick, I do enjoy your column. I am an airline employee (23 years) and also an "airline brat." (My father also was a longtime airline employee.) I'm also a private pilot. I, too, seek to dispel the more »

I work at an airline and we have a shoe requirement: they, too, must be plain black shoes. But not one woman wears heels. We all wear flats, clogs, or at most, a low, one-inch heel. I think a happy wo more »
