The "both parties have become more extremist" trope has no validity whatsoever. While the Republican party has indeed changed from a center-right party to what would be a far-right party in any other more »

What would be the point of including the fare in the article? It's a dynamically-set price that fluctuates constantly. more »

That's not a commuter train -- it's a rapid-transit (or "El") train.

The whole French state was at fault in the collaboration with the Nazis; to single out the SNCF (then a 100% state-owned enterprise) for particular approbation doesn't really make sense. In 1995, then more »

Thank you for this story, Boston Globe! A fascinating glimpse into a faded, glorious space. I love the photos, too.

It's been a staple of their story for YEARS. They used to brag about FiOS availability in the entire Boston-NYC-Washington corridor -- except it wasn't available in any of those cities, only the inter more »

Amusingly, they are also opening a satellite office in downtown Boston because, like many companies, they're having more and more trouble luring software engineers to car-only office parks. (At least more »

Uhm, OK. So as a truck driver you have a right to smear cyclists across the road, not stop, and get off scot-free?
