The CSX lines use continuously welded rail. Very long strips of rail are brought over on railcars (the bundles of rails are so long that they span across several cars) and are dumped out along the sid more »

Again, what does the Tea Party have to do with this? And what does the Tea Party have to do with the fact that one entity owns the truck, the other owns the trailer? This is truely bizarre.

What does this legislation entail, exactly? Common-sense reform or is it a "screw the dirty hazmat industry" type of bill? What is the bill number? And to narfrolyat, I don't think the tea party had a more »

You labor under the old misconception that cancer develops "local," grows "local" then, eventually, metastasizes once it is "large enough." Unfortunately in the case of breast cancer, it can develop a more »

The state's coffers are brimming. In fact we are third overall for savings, and first among blue states (only Alaska and Texas have more cash on hand). When people wonder why Massachusetts isn't going more »

While on the one hand it is possible that all those comments were spam, the fact that 11 out of 13 comments have been removed is still suspicious. What's the story, Boston.com?

As a responsible firearms owner, I laud the decision to prosecute Mr. Smith. He was in the right to defend himself initially, but only with the amount of force needed to repel or defuse the threat. I more »

As someone who, in fact, had to race to the hospital to see a dying relative, I extend my thanks to you.

I never said the collectors were above the board, in fact I said repeatedly that they were not. You have seen this already, so your question "but the colection agency's obvious violation of the laws i more »

I like how I am getting disliked all up and down this post. I am also getting liked too, but the dislikers are out in force. What is the problem, guys? Was I underscoring an inconvenient truth? Pointi more »

Merchants like to offer customers convenience, and the current system offers at least some protection for merchants from small minority of customers who seek to defraud them (through malice or neglige more »

austin108, I have personally seen people deliberately write bad checks. But that isn't the point. They are still responsible for their actions, even if they didn't mean it. If I accidentally kill some more »

Only one of the wrongs is getting the press, while the other wrong gets couched in terms like "allegedly" and "mistake." The sentiment "two wrongs don't make a right" can't be used to paper over the s more »

Being unsophisticated is not an excuse to commit fraud. Yes, it is also not an excuse for someone else to defraud the unsophisticated, but stop painting them as innocent victims.

It is lamentable that the DAs were in bed with some shady characters. Having said that, the justice system is supposed to protect everyone. Including merchants who get stiffed by cheaters. What do you more »

One of the few Democrats I'd consider voting for.

We have enough gun control. We are clearly lacking in the thug control department.

Thank you for sharing your story. It is truely bizarre that in Massachusetts you can't even get pepper spray without a permit. Taking a firearm is a personal choice. In contrast to the other side of t more »

Rational people know that the NRA had nothing to do with these crimes. The criminals aren't NRA members, and the NRA does not condone this behavior. Low information voters, meanwhile, are very quick t more »

What exactly is stupid and disproven about Brown's native american line? We are well aware that members of Congress maintain a second home near Congress. Key word: second home. As in, not spending the more »

But what is YOUR point, jangles? That it is fine to hop from state to state if you are a democrat? Or that calling out such double standards is bad?

. "If you look at a crowd of black people, that looks exactly like the gang members who commit 95% of the shootings in the country. " That is also racist. See the parallel. Liberals are the bigots in more »
