And in mine. Although sometimes I think, how cold and wet those little girls' feet must be! To the writer: I don't see any "horse carts" -- I do see a carriage, and what appear to be horse-drawn trams more »

Gee, 1976 was about the year that I got mugged in front of this church. In daylight, on a weekday. I hold no fondness for it. But the design could be more attractive, definitely. more »

This article is quite misleading, with so many towns being left out. How can it be good journalism not to even mention that this covers only some arbitrary selection of locations? Another town not men more »

Mr. Gladwell is not the subject of the article -- that is Joel Baden. I heard Malcolm Gladwell on the radio yesterday and he was not badmouthing David. Nor did he state that David didn't kill Goliat more »

Of course I would cite my sources in any written communication -- to do otherwise is dishonesty!

While we are at it, no love for the Autumnal Equinox either? I can't find any instance of that being celebrated secularly, but I do find very interesting the in-between celebrations -- Hallowe'en is more »

Yes, pigs are smart, but when did two wrongs become a right? Horsemeat is not used in dogfood anymore, by the way. Check your facts. And the toxic residues in it would be just as bad for Fido as th more »

Any discussion of eating horsemeat should include two more points. First, the actual process of turning a living horse into meat is anything but humane -- yes, less humane than the process of slaught more »

How sad -- just yesterday I was thinking about the Higgins Armory and wondering how it was doing (that flood they had a few years ago and all...). This was not what I wanted to hear. I loved that pl more »

B.good is a burger place with a difference -- they don't rely on only beef, either. The one in my neighborhood (now gone, alas) had a wonderful veggie burger, a chicken sandwich and also a turkey bur more »

Don't you have a spell checker? It is not "duanting"...

That is simply not true -- that 50% are freeloaders -- and I am surprised anyone keeps parroting it. People may not be paying FEDERAL INCOME TAXES but that is only one part of the U.S. tax burden. I more »

Another fan of Jeff and Beth here -- Highland is a terrific place.

So sorry to learn about this -- I've been through it myself, a beloved dog with cancer that first seemed to be responding to treatment, but then... -- it's heartrending. Not to diminish the place tha more »

There is no article here. Please fix it.

Were you in such a rush to get this story up that you didn't proofread the photo caption? I'd think everyone would know the first name of Mr. Petraeus.

There have been several petitions on various platforms -- I signed 'em. Don't know what their influence has been, though.

Come on -- Bill and Lou (RIP) are a lot more like pets than not. They have names, they are recognized by people, they have or had relationships with people. They are workers doing our bidding, do w more »

RIP Lou -- probably the best outcome if his injury was not treatable. Now, I hope an equal amount of compassion will be put forth for Bill. He should go to a sanctuary -- what on earth would be the more »

Thank you, Boston Globe, for covering this story. Shipping to slaughter is racing's dirty little secret -- I am glad you are helping to bring the issues into the light. Please note, however, that th more »

Perhaps there was no complaint because there was no way to complain? I noticed it and would definitely have complained, if comments had been allowed. At least you could have said [sic]. more »

Isn't that interesting. The comment I wrote yesterday disagreeing with these judges is not posted now. Hmm. Would anyone care to comment on that? more »

I am really surprised! Am I the only one who dislikes this site? I find it remarkable that the poor usability of the site wasn't a factor. Take, for example, this page upon which I am typing. It is a more »

Please fix misspelling of Seychelles in photo caption. I would so much like my hometown paper to be first-rate, but I am not sure you-all share that goal. more »

Oops -- it's an AP report, sorry; that explains it. I was looking for a byline down where the text began and didn't see one. more »
