The steps of that building were designed as a public gathering place. Here's a novel idea: why doesn't the city fund the library adequately so they can staff the entry? Problem solved. Also, telling p more »

Well, yes they do. more »

Are we supposed to feel sorry for you? Well, I do. But not for the reasons you'd hope for. more »

Yes, albeit sometimes clumsily so. more »

Two tries have made me an expert on how not to win elections. But it's still a great way to make new friends (and the best sort of enemies. ;) more »

Nobody is entitled to a public parking spot for their private automobile any more than they are entitled to a publicly subsidized slip for their yacht on the waterfront. Eliminate residential parking more »

Let's all be sure to remember to thank freshman councillor Michelle Wu for casting the deciding vote for Linehan's council presidency. Way to go, Ms. "progressive"! more »

I hope it DOES get picked up by the national media. Fair pickings. more »

I think this is a little unfair to Berwick. more »

"global warming when does it F......n end?" Thanks to collective denial and selfishness, portebello, not for a long, long time.

Taking his cues from Putin? :)

I say get rid of the primary process altogether and replace it with a single I.R.V. election. That would be simpler, cheaper, and far more fair to all participants.

"I would think that it would be hard for any individual to be elected mayor without an understanding and respect for Boston's great history." I beg to differ, Weytown. Menino was proud of his anti-i more »

At that price, I'd skip the middleman. :)

I think it's a bit rich that the Republicans should accuse Obama and Reid of polarizing the senate when it is their party that has petulantly blocked nearly all legislation and administrative appointm more »

Pretty cool. So why do we have to wait until 2016 to see the Casey overpass come down?

Dammit, Shirley, why didn't you run for mayor?

I'm glad to see that both candidates want to create a firewall between the planning and development wings of the BRA. That said, I think that Walsh's approach could create a NIMBY clearing house that more »

Comparing Marty Walsh to Bill Deblazio is just off the wall. I can't imagine two more disparate personalities. Wishful thinking from Walsh camp?

How about REALLY completing the Silver Line as light rail, as originally promised?

You're right. But it's a chicken/egg situation. Unfortunately, the necessary political pressure for comprehensive restoration/expansion of our transit system will only occur if we act aggressively t more »
