It's not a boondoggle at all. It would provide a major transport upgrade for people in the area, and provides a highly useful rapid transit network upgrade for the region. If you're looking for transp more »

Whether or not the project managers screwed up in the bids, abandoning this project would be an utterly terrible thing for the region, and frankly a catastrophe for residents who have staked a lot of more »

Thanks for this great piece! I always do track the march of the blueberries every year, from Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina (gritty and barely edible from all three states) to North Carolina (no more »

Yeah. Have you ever seen the Green Line at rush hour at a busy station where the driver *doesn't* open all of the doors? It takes many, many minutes for all of the passengers to move in and out of the more »

Actually, it's pretty unique to the US that mainstream right wingers insist that climate change isn't conclusive, that it isn't cause by humans, or any other evasion that is based on faith, not scienc more »

The "both parties have become more extremist" trope has no validity whatsoever. While the Republican party has indeed changed from a center-right party to what would be a far-right party in any other more »

pit16, the "taxpayers supporting him" argument doesn't hold water, apart from the many ethical problems with the state killing murderers. It costs more in legal charges (in states with the death penal more »

What would be the point of including the fare in the article? It's a dynamically-set price that fluctuates constantly. more »

Wow, this is another great win for Boston. Exciting! more »

That's not a commuter train -- it's a rapid-transit (or "El") train.

Yes, absolutely. When I was growing up in Newton in the 1970s, EVERYBODY walked to my elementary school. A few years ago when one of my kids was enrolled in an afterschool program housed in the same s more »

Really? I have found Pandora always to be extremely unimpressive in its choices -- I check in with it every year or so and am always sorely disappointed. Spotify, on the other hand, has always seemed more »

What a ghastly accident. Poor family.

The whole French state was at fault in the collaboration with the Nazis; to single out the SNCF (then a 100% state-owned enterprise) for particular approbation doesn't really make sense. In 1995, then more »

Thank you for this story, Boston Globe! A fascinating glimpse into a faded, glorious space. I love the photos, too.

It's been a staple of their story for YEARS. They used to brag about FiOS availability in the entire Boston-NYC-Washington corridor -- except it wasn't available in any of those cities, only the inter more »

It's not like the SNCF doesn't have its problems. But both train frequency and speed are so far ahead in Paris when compared to Boston that it's almost comical to compare them.

This is great news. I'm delighted to see more international routes terminate at Logan.

Amusingly, they are also opening a satellite office in downtown Boston because, like many companies, they're having more and more trouble luring software engineers to car-only office parks. (At least more »

Uhm, OK. So as a truck driver you have a right to smear cyclists across the road, not stop, and get off scot-free?
Posted 02/15/2013 10:37:26 EST
It would be nice if I saw police enforcing crosswalk laws around pedestrians (I almost never see that) instead of writing citations to bicyclists for coasting through traffic lights when there are no more »

She's one of the most beautiful actresses working.

She later regretted having made such a statement.

It's a wildly, outlandishly dumbheaded policy. As earlier posters said, the already inefficient line becomes intolerably slow. Years ago, with the advent of the Charlie Card, I remembered the MBTA ent more »
