You seem not to realize that education for illegal children is required based on supreme court rulings, and is not at the whim of "socialist democrats"

Yes, the interest rates are a problem. So are exorbitant tuition costs. However, it need not take an act of congress to reduce tuition. Students, don't attend schools you can't afford. Don't borrow $2 more »

Skippy, of course young women can take steps to avoid unsafe situations, but why don't you ask your friend if she thinks males should also bear some "personal responsibility." I'm assuming the man i more »

Clinton's consensual (albeit despicable) affair with Lewinsky.is not equivalent to Thomas' unwanted repeated harassment of Hill. You trolls need to google Paula Jones for an accurate analogy.

Brandeis lists her as a an advisor to the provost AND a professor teaching 2 classes.

Richmond, you are perpetuating the problem, by insisting that this is a women's problem only. Men need to be educated to take no for an answer. Men need to be educated that verbally pressuring an unwi more »

My apologies. I quickly looked up who was governor in 2001 and got incorrect info. Guess you can't believe everything you read on the internet! And by the way, cranky folks, my "conservatives get what more »

The judge is an army veteran who was appointed by the republican governor. So by your logic, conservatives get what you ask for? Judge's term is up at the end of May. I bet she gets a sweet job with t more »

How on earth are you blaming "the anti-vax crowd" for a virus that currently has no vaccine? Vaccines are great and make a lot of sense. Your comment, not so much.

It's extremely disturbing. We went into Children's a few years ago with my son in seizures that would not stop. I believed that the medication he was on (Trileptil) was making him worse because the mo more »

That's all great and necessary, but it seems to me that the single most important factor that will keep ex-cons from returning to a life of crime is meaningful employment. Where is the job training an more »

Watch09 and anti-lib, What you refer to as "evidence" is actually privileged communication with a lawyer at the rape crisis center. The defense can't put a victim's lawyer on the stand and can't deman more »

Miker, you're so cute when you're wrong. Love that you think Facebook is a legitimate place to get your info. You probably think that stupid story about the $4037 fine is true too. Awww.

Miker, it's no "secret" that many progressives think single-payer is the way to go. Many of us opposed ACA as written because the fatal flaw is that it still rewards insurance companies and pharmaceut more »

More importantly, WHY is there this epidemic of autism? Why is virtually all the funding thrown at behavioral treatment and psychiatric medications? It is impossible to have a genetically- based epide more »

Students with disabilities DO have to take MCAS, even if they are in alternate programs. As a former special Ed teacher and mom of a child with significant special needs, it is truly outrageous and he more »

Let's not pretend that all parents declining vaccinations are uneducated, ignorant, or arrogant. If you have a healthy child, yes, vaccinate your kid. But if you have an at-risk child, do not allow st more »

It does a grave disservice to our children to lump all these incidents together as "bullying." The word "bullying" implies a type of schoolyard childishness (such as the ostracism of Harriet the Spy.) more »

Super great, Harry. Except that today, if your kid bit Judy's kid, you would get sued for $100,000 and your illegal daycare operation would be exposed and your wife would be arrested. I had a friend w more »

The College Scorecard only shows the repayment rate for federal loans, which are capped. If a school costs $25,000 per year, and the student borrows $25,000 total in federal loans, where is the rest o more »

I would agree with you in principle, but FYI, many kids get on the bus at 6:15 or earlier for a 7:00am start to high school. In order to get your recommended 10 hours of sleep, they would be going to more »

At what point does it become unethical to withhold results and deny the medication from children who clearly benefit? Waiting until the end of 2014 while watching the child lose ground day by day...is more »

I definitely agree that food cravings are more intense when you are tired. But I'm surprised there was no mention of mistaking thirst for hunger, especially when exhausted or stressed. A cup of herbal more »

That makes no sense. He was arrested for bashing her head into a mirror. He didn't kill her BECAUSE he was arrested, he killed her because he's a violent murdering psycho. I actually know someone whos more »

Seeley, the fact that diet soda actually CAUSES weight gain is most troubling because the primary reason people drink diet soda is to avoid weight gain. So, there is no "upside" and thus no justificat more »
