Unlike the author of this piece, I won't impressed with their output until they implement termRead More limits, reduce their salaries, and limit their work to 6 months of a year. These steps will greatly reduce the "damage" they can do to the education, transportation, and economic areas in our state!

Definitely will add these to my long, long list of "to reads". Maybe I'll live longRead More enough to get to them all. Just finished an oldie but goodie ... but you know? The stories only stay with me for a while, I read so much that I forget what I've already read and after the first few pages, I get into it again and often continue since I liked it the first time around. There will never be enough hours in any day to read all I want to and thank goodness and God for Goodreads and, of course, my library and you, Danielle, for adding to my lists. Was offered a Kindle but know what? I really prefer to hold that book in my lap to read, plus I prefer to use my library ... it's FREE, for goodness sake, why would I pay to read anything but a newspaper? And, even that can be gotten at the library. If nothing else, I just love the smell of a library! (Sorry for my longwinded-ness ... just love, love books.)
Mamie Huggins April 20, 2014 at 08:37 am
Hey Anna - I'm a book lover too and use the library on occasion. But it's not FREE as you say, it'sRead More paid for by us taxpayers. Also, when I buy a book, especially by an unknown and/or local author, I'm helping that person to keep writing.
Anna Bucciarelli April 20, 2014 at 05:48 pm
Of course you're right Mamie but if I don't have to part with an additional penny from my pocket IRead More feel it's a treat. And you're right too about keeping authors writing I especially like books by new, first-time novelists who often surprise me with the wonder of their words.

Her rights were violated. If "I" have to look at all the jesus propaganda, then I shouldRead More be able to voice my right to free speech. While I would never choose such a plate for fear that my car would get vandalized, I totally support this woman's right to request it.

I want to sue McDonald's because they don't sell hotdogs, I don't want hamburgers I want hotdogs.

Getting back to the topic at hand... Religious freedom clause of the 1st Amendment is extended toRead More all regardless of one's religious beliefs or lack thereof. It seem like we can use our freedom of speech not in snipping and sniping at one another, but to use the freedom of speech to promote good will and to do what is right. Protecting religious freedom of other people's religious practice is the right thing to do. To do the contrary is not only wrong, it's also un-American.

Why is this trending again, when this took place last year, basically.... Between getting hit atRead More Target and Micheal's, I had to change my debit card twice in a very short period of time.

Hit by this one, too. And this time my card has already been used for a fraudulent purchase. Rec'dRead More the bill the same day this breach was announced.

Ok........lots of happy people here. When my children were young we hid eggs in the yard for theirRead More hunt. One dog used to collect them before we went outside and put them on his bed, smelling the candy inside. Kids learned to trade dog treats to get their eggs back. A different kind of egg hunt- and I miss that dog.
Robert L. Cerra April 19, 2014 at 09:58 pm
hey hey hey -Didn't you get the message -dogs have rights too, the Supreme Crt should be rulingRead More on his soon. We need Al Gore to make us a documentary about the new meaning of puppy love then he can sell us dog food instead of energy credits.

Has nothing to do with video games. Raised like a POS acts like a POS. To young at 24?? It'sRead More the generation of 'look downs" staring at their phones all day with the entitlement aspect. 18 is a legal adult. Maybe Raise the age to 28 so mommy and daddy can coddle them longer and give out more 9th place soccer trophies. And for the record Obamacare sucks!!!
tamarya April 21, 2014 at 06:58 am
Agree b john, my husband was 19 and i was 23 when our first was born and my husband went andRead More bettered his career for his family not sat and played video games. Dont get me wrong we used to use the computer more at one time, but ours got shut off in the day to take care of our kids.
tamarya April 21, 2014 at 07:02 am
Heck even my dad was younger and hooked to video games and everytime the ataris were upgraded theyRead More got one, but i was always fed and had new clothes and alot more toys than i needed and my dad also did something these people should try, he played those video games with his kid.

Tax exempt government bonds are offered in the marketplace, retired over their terms, 15,20, 30Read More years with interest, tax free income. Offered on the bond market, just like Chelmsford's sewer project was funded,like all long-term projects are funded.

Hi Folks, Did we forget about the huge gasoline tax passed over a year ago?? It's about time weRead More start to repair the Commonwealths failing decaying infrastructure with such funds, rather than continue to balance the state annual budget deficit. Carry on, Paul Maisano

Yep, It's not bad enough that MA was already #1 in the country for debt per capita, let's make itRead More worse ! What a pork barrel waste of money. The best one is $325 million to expand South Station (why ?) and rename it the Dukakis Transportation Center. How appropriate, a boondoggle named after another inept demo governor !

People, remember -- There are FOUR subway lines that go into the Downtown Crossing / Back Bay area.Read More You don't HAVE to take the Green Line. The ORANGE line goes to Back Bay Station, and it's pretty centrally located. Also, consider watching the Marathon from a less-populated area, such as Framingham / Newton / Needham. The runner will appreciate it, and so will the security folks.
Heather A. McDonald April 19, 2014 at 09:36 am
Newton -home of Heartbreak Hill & Boston College is a very popular / exciting locale to cheer onRead More the runners- youll be disappointed if you go to Needham as it is not on the marathon route - Wellesley yes!

So what you're saying william is that anyone who comes along and claims "PTSD",Read More "ABUSE", blah, blah blah should get a free pass? Why have laws then? The whole concept of making something a criminal act is that we want to discourage it from happening in the first place, by putting deterrents into effect. One such deterrent is PRISON, another is the Death Penalty. If this person was being abused, she had options BEFORE coming to this point - for whatever reason, she make a decision to kill someone, and a Jury of her peers determined her guilt. So off to jail she goes - hopefully FOREVER.

Surprised and pleased to see that the Patch covered the 'debate' and published a report. There isRead More so much more going on behind the scenes that a true news vehicle/reporter could investigate and report. Shout out to Splice...you saved me much typing time! And folks, please, do support Comm2A and GOAL. At least, go to their websites to educate yourself if you are unsure about the 2nd Amendment and what it really means. The 2nd Amendment is there to insure We The People always the the means to protect ourselves against criminals and crazies and especially to fight back against a TYRANNICAL GOVERNMENT!!

One more thing : despite what we see on tv shows(sometimes I think that's where a lot of ourRead More politicians get there info), biometrics is not a foolproof technology. I've been privileged to know some of the tech leaders in the field and, although"pretty reliable", its not a panacea for gun violence. If instituted there is no doubt it would create an underground industry that would find ways to defeat any "safeguards" based on biometrics. The "biometrics " approach is a,distraction invented by pols

The guns will be used on liberal politicians! It's just a matter of time until civil war breaks outRead More in this country! The country is divided in half! On one side is Tea Party, Republicans, working class and people who believe in the constitution , then on the other side you have liberal democrats which are special interest groups, minorities, illegal immigrants, gays , unions which are police , firefighters , teachers and various uneducated working groups, then the welfare crowd! These are the nitwits who vote Democrat! The war will erupt real soon!
