No, it's not really "a growing problem". It's just that the press has finally discovered it.

The bottom line is this: pay for a 21st century transit system with 20th century budgets; write a 50 page report showing pervasive MANAGEMENT deficiencies; and cash in decent blue collar jobs with ben more »

And Charlie...half a million people in Bristol County are waiting for a chance to share the Bahlkes' frustration with commuter rail so they can take advantage of the jobs in the Boston area, too. more »

Thanks for the fairness and truth in this piece. Unions continue to be the only countervailing power resisting the conversion of the US to 'banana republic' status. more »

Good balance in this piece. Rare when there is so much 1% hysteria about "austerity", or why we must take money from poor, elderly widows. more »

Greater inequality is directly related to lower union density. more »

The Pioneer Institute is not simply a "policy think tank". It is a "right wing think tank". more »

But...the vast and underutilized economic potential of Gateway Cities New Bedford and Fall River will never be realized without a real connection to the Metro Boston region. more »

Another example of Boston-centric thinking! And why Western and Southeastern Massachusetts can be so alienated from the crowd In the capital city! more »

Wrong about the Pioneer Institute. It is a right wing "stink tank" masquerading as a "nonpartisan research organization". To imply the latter is to be inaccurate and taints the impartiality of the pie more »

Sounds like a good model for Globe columnists, too. How about $10 per column for the last 3 months of the year? Might be a slightly excessive price for some columns, though.

Just one more skirmish in the war over inequality. More important to know are the willingly oblivious hotel owners.
