Comment on: Tiered health plans cutting costs, restricting options - Business - The Boston Globe
Posted 11/28/2011 07:07:28 EST
If the facts presented are true, this is not a properly formed tiered system but rather more like the worst aspects of socialized medicine in europe. This is perfect case where the time constraints ov more »

Comment on: 'Toyota debuts new Camry amid tough competition'
Posted 08/24/2011 06:58:25 EDT

Comment on: 'People voice frustration, stress with debt-ceiling deadlock'
Posted 07/30/2011 06:50:33 EDT
After somehow getting through all these rantings, I now realize that congress is truly representative of us as a society and that explains it all. One nation of self rightious nuts. Rodney King said i more »

In fact, lets get rid of the tea party too and have a coffee party....you know, wake up and smell the coffee group and roll up their sleeves and get some work done effort. Lets get a dunkins franchise more »

At election time, incumbents no, new comers yes. This congress no longer works. 100% clean house and members who actually work for the people and not their parties. In business or life, we cut those u more »

I think the question asked about who and how were the properties maintained and financially supported needs to be answered...if it has been the sister or someone representing her, it can be speculated more »
Comment on: 'Vigil participants at Everett’
Posted 07/25/2011 06:52:08 EDT
Reading the comments, I suspect none of the writers are from Everett and perhaps not even practicing catholics. If you were, you would have better insight to the intentions of those holding the vigil. more »
Comment on: 'More local drivers are turning to vehicles that run on alternative fuels'
Posted 05/29/2011 06:55:46 EDT

Comment on: 'No relief in sight as gasoline costs soar'
Posted 04/24/2011 07:03:09 EDT
Gas prices have gone up and down thru a couple of dozen administrations and none have had any real impact towards stablizing it. Oil companies have figured out how to manipulate the markets with conti more »
Comment on: 'Author cancels event after ‘
Posted 04/24/2011 06:45:53 EDT
I watched the same story and based on what I saw, his "hole in the heart" repair is probably really an EKG test....he seems to have a problem with details and facts. I think he has inflated ego, immat more »

Posted 04/15/2011 06:45:37 EDT
When it comes to hybrids, there are lots of choices now and amazingly most dealers treat them like any other car in the sales process. I looked at the fusion (assumed I could not afford a lincoln) and more »

Posted 04/09/2011 09:39:05 EDT

Posted 03/20/2011 07:55:54 EDT
