Re: Some people. . .

I've just arrived at a comment that says, "please call CPS and inform them that you are an unfit mother."

Some people. . .

Once in a while I read a Boston.com column called "Love Letters". A lot of the fun comes from reading the comments. There are a lot of regulars there, and they like to kid each other.

Re: An Open Letter

Don't any of these protesters have jobs, or classes to go to? Must be nice living off family money to be able to go march around the street with signs.

Re: An Open Letter

Actually, there were a number of cities that had protests that remained calm and orderly. In Boston most of the arrests were to keep people from blocking I-93, and charges were dropped the next morning. The police didn't go overboard, and the [more]
