MALE, Revere, MA
About Me: Retired.
I try to post calm, logical messages. Sometimes an arrogant post will elicit an arrogant reply. I'm only human, and they deserve it. :-)
I'm egalitarian. If there's anything I truly hate it's racial and ethnic prejudice. I grew up in the South and learned to recognize all the code words. I won't let it pass.

I agree about Franco. He seemed spaced out. He may be able to act from a script, but he's no presenter. On the whole, though, I thought the show was boring. As usual, some of the acceptance speeches w more »
Forum Post: Your favorite dog breed?
Posted 01/28/2011 07:33:08 EST
Mixed breeds are best. Many purebred dogs suffer from various defects from inbreeding or because they've been selectively bred over the years into something unnatural -- a prime example is bulldogs. I more »
Forum Post: Quincy council criticizes Fore River Bridge design
Posted 01/20/2011 04:58:33 EST
I think the vertical lift design is rather nice, and makes the bridge a little unique. It sounds like the council just wants the same old same old. They need to move out of the 19th century. more »

It was a totally unscientific online survey. Who knows where the people who voted are from or what cities they've visited. You can't legitimately rank one city against another unless you've been to b more »

Why must there be only one way? The intelligent thing is to weight various solutions to a problem and pick the best one. The problem with economic or political dogma is that nothing is weighted. The " more »

Some Red Sox fans seem to be nostalgic for the days when they were losers, as hard as that is to believe. It's like they've lost their identity now that they're not supporting a losing team. Anybody w more »
