Comment on: Write Your Way to Owning a Bed and Breakfast, John Grisham - Maine news - Boston.com
Posted 03/12/2015 12:11:18 EDT
It would be so nice if people who write for boston.com knew something about grammar. "Whomever" will not write the winning essay; "whoever" will write it. You folks should give a grammar test before y more »

Comment on: Caucuses revealing weaknesses in Martha Coakleyâs campaign - Metro - The Boston Globe
Posted 02/20/2014 10:55:23 EST
We understand that Frank Phillips does not want Martha Coakley to win because the only articles he has written about this campaign are anti-Coakley. But as a seasoned (to say the least) political rep more »
Comment on: What does a casino share with Coakley? - Opinion - The Boston Globe
Posted 02/13/2014 08:10:33 EST
One wonders why Vennochi has been on a crusade against Coakley when there are other candidates that clearly have far more baggage than she does and have contributed far less to the Commonwealth than s more »
Comment on: Partners HealthCareâs special status carries special obligation to help city - Editorials - The Boston Globe
Posted 01/05/2014 06:18:22 EST
It's time for the whining to stop. Nobody complains when Boston lures companies from Cambridge or Somerville after those cities have invested large amounts in retaining them.
Comment on: James Reedâs top concerts of 2013 - Music - The Boston Globe
Posted 12/29/2013 02:06:05 EST
I'm glad that James Reed got to go to the concert at Town Hall, but most Boston area folks did not. It does not belong on this list. And if it does then all kinds of out-of-town concerts should be i more »
Comment on: Partnersâ move and Bostonâs history - Opinion - The Boston Globe
Posted 12/29/2013 01:43:56 EST
Somerville is an urban center equally as diverse as Boston--and it shares a border with Boston--so I don't understand the fuss. It's not as though Partners moved to some lily-white suburb. And maybe more »
Comment on: Attorney General Martha Coakleyâs campaign funds in disarray - Metro - The Boston Globe

This story might have more validity if Frank Phillips did not have a history of trashing female candidates. Time to retire Frank.
Comment on: Senator? Senator? If itâs in a Senate hallway, Elizabeth Warren rarely answers - Politics - The Boston Globe
Posted 08/02/2013 09:03:57 EDT
Why is this worth a page 1 story? Because the journalists are offended that she will not stop to chat with them.
Comment on: Really, why shouldn't sellers wait for higher prices?
Posted 02/01/2013 08:20:38 EST
Good point--the market is much sofer in those communities because buyers want the convenience of an easy commute to downtown Boston.
Comment on: - Opinion - The Boston Globe

What box does Scott Brown think she checked when she applied for those academic positions? To begin with, those universities probably invited her to apply by submitting nothing more than a cv. At mo more »

Posted 12/29/2009 07:38:42 EST
Coakley makes a reasonable proposal that will help the middle class, but not the rich who do not need help, and Brown and his lackeys can do nothing but carp, insult and criticize. If we were not cont more »
Comment on: Coakley's act - Out of Line - Online Cartoons by Dan Wasserman, Boston Globe
editorial cartoonist - Boston.com
Posted 12/01/2009 09:33:36 EST
It's impossible to take the Globe seriously. First the bizarre endorsement of Khazei and now this insulting cartoon, which fails to examine Coakley's true position on the Patriot Act. You should be as more »
Comment on: 'For Democrats - Alan Khazei for Senate'
Posted 11/29/2009 01:08:07 EST
This sounds just like the Globe's endorsement of Obama, who also had potential and "HOPE." And where are we now? The fact is that Khazei is running for the most junior seat in the Senate--the kinds of more »

Posted 11/28/2009 12:53:33 EST
If it's true that Somerville has the most corrupt politicians in the state then Capuano should be included in that category. As for the allegation that Coakley is unexciting, while I don't believe tha more »
Comment on: 'Coakley holds strong lead in Senate primary race poll'
Posted 11/22/2009 12:05:18 EST
I would like to remind the Fells Acres folks that Martha was not the prosecutor in this case. The sexism of the article and most of the comments is mind-boggling. When are you folks going to get past more »
Comment on: 'A charisma shortage'
Posted 11/20/2009 12:37:35 EST
So it's charisma you want? Deval Patrick. Barack Obama. How about another column titled "A results shortage." I know Martha Coakley and find her to be engaging, dedicated, thoughtful and honest--and v more »
Comment on: 'Khazei generates some celebrity buzz'
Posted 11/18/2009 10:53:20 EST
The names of Coakley's dogs are a non-issue. It's amazing what the press will come up with to slam a female candidate. Have a sense of humor Potlemac--and I'm sure you never intended to vote for her a more »
Comment on: 'Caution, ambition mingle in Mass. attorney general’
Posted 11/18/2009 12:45:02 EST
Was Coakley cautious when she announced she was running for the Senate without waiting to hear if one of the Kennedy's would run--while all the others waited in the wings? Was she cautions when she wa more »
