I was thinking the same thing on "shelf life". I grew up in Pittsburgh during the Chuck Knoll era and witnessed the slide of the steelers towards mediocrity. I hope we aren't in the same boat with BB, more »

I think there is also an interesting point about Google Wallet and ISIS. IF I recall correctly, Verizon (and perhaps other carriers) block Google wallet. Of course, Verizon can't push around Apple. Be more »

The Boston area is already fairly strong financially. I struggle to see how this would be a net win for the area. 1) Do we need a new major stadium? Even if if we do is it worth the compromises neces more »
Comment on: MBCR makes case for renewed contract, even in face of long-flagging ridership - Metro - The Boston Globe

And while the train server can stink, the most annoying aspect is the the MBTA parking police who like to give out big tickets if your inspection sticker is a day out of date. Insult to injury. I do more »

As a commuter on the Framingham-Worcester line this is a good idea. It is also a good idea to move the Post office out of high value real estate right in the city and on the water. Maybe this isn't c more »
