Either way, I realize I'm being picky. But isn't what what comment sections are for?

The building itself is anchored into bedrock with cement casings that are up to 185 feet below ground." Not sure why the Globe writers can't get structural terms right... Cement is a powder and casing more »

That's the best-dressed protest I've ever seen.

How we Bostonians put up with the BRA is beyond me. Any other public agency wanting to do any work on public land has to put out projects to the lowest qualified bidder, while the BRA fights for swee more »

Apparently you haven't been hit by ice chunks flying off a semi truck a few cars in front of you (on the highway, that is). At low speeds, it's not a big deal but once you go 50mph or so, that snow a more »

If you have a smartphone, download the CitizensConnect app, and get to work reporting all these property owners who don't shovel. It works surprisingly well.

I normally agree with Yvonne, but not here. The casino law is the law of the commonwealth, and if they are allowed by the law to revise their plan to work just in Revere then I say go for it. That d more »

If you're buying or renting a unit in a development that had to carve out additional space for more parking, then you're subsidizing parking. Less parking spaces in a development means more space for more »

Time to beak out those old bug catcher nets you had when you were a kid..

So I guess this makes Sununu the crazy Dennis Hopper - tripping balls, listening to the Doors, and ranting about how the EPA is going to kill the great Colonel Coal: "I mean, what are they gonna say a more »

Do you even have editors anymore?

Spell check anyone?

âIt is easy to draw lines on a map . . ." and what, show where the actual city boundaries are? They're not making this stuff up. If it's not in Boston it's not in Boston.

Interesting how the article throws around the terms minority, persons of color, and black. Yes, there are 6 minority candidates in the race, but only 5 of the 6 are black and one is latino. It sound more »
