Deval Patrick, you are now an enabler for extortion artists. Not a very high note in your final year in office. As a former federal prosecutor yourself you should be able to recognize extortion and ca more »

Best wishes to Mayor Dan Rivera. He has the intelligence and integrity that Lawrence needs.

I have always been opposed to capital punishment. Cases like this one make me question that position.

Thank you, Senator Warren (and Congresswoman Tsongas, too) for having the political courage to do the right thing and endorse Dan Rivera for Mayor of Lawrence.

He deserves the same kind of treatment he gave to that poor dog.
