Letter: Pushing liberal agenda

Mr. Ortiz, You are confusing climate with weather. Weather fluctuates from day to day such as daily temperatures and precipitation variances. Climate is weather conditions prevailing in an area in general or over a long period such as the tropical monsoons of central and east Asia. This is not a liberal or conservation issue. It's one of science. ...(full comment)

Letter: Climate change vs. global warming

Exxon knew about this, and validated this, decades ago: which means that every single administration has known about this for decades, and delayed and delayed, and delayed, while repealing Glass Steagall and developing policies that mobilize wealth into the hands of a very, very few individuals in mind-numbing numbers, off shore. In case you can't put it together, the term "grabbing the lifeboats" is a good metaphor: Unless voters wake up and stop being divided, deluded and conquered, our children are not going to be on the survival list. In elite circles, population control (elimination) is a topic. ...(full comment)

Gran/My Turn: Climate needs commitment

Wonderful perspective, thanks for contributing it. I particularly like your paragraph on your own personal conclusion. As a frustrated atheist (that is, I am one but kind of wish I weren't), it appeals to me. ...(full comment)

Culleny: Behind the death god masks

The town owns the clock, who else would you have pay for it's running and upkeep? If you're that upset about it I'd suggest raising the issue of selling the clock at the next town meeting. ...(full comment)

High notes: Second Congregational Church to add music to daily bell ringing

Kinder Morgan wants an export pipeline to fill its tankers. They also want to bilk ratepayers, landowners and municipalities in order to build an export pipeline. There is no public necessity for this: just Kinder Morgan's greed and duplicity. ...(full comment)

State AG: Better ways than pipeline; Healey-commissioned report sees no electric reliability issues for at least 15 years

I suggest that anyone who thinks we can let the Syrians in this country should host a Syrian refugee. Feed and house them. Help them assimilate into the American fabric AND be responsible for them. I don't want to say if they do a crime the host should do the time (meaning a terrorist act) but maybe they should. This way they would not be a burden on the American taxpayer. ...(full comment)

If solar powered people do not pay their fair share of the grid cost than there should be no subsidies or tax credits for solar installation. The industry should be able to stand on its own. ...(full comment)

Plaintiffs respond to Feds on pipeline lawsuit

Oh hey, what the heck, let them all in. We have so many jobs available for them, it's a no brainer. Our police are so underutilized as it is. Our senior citizens are all set to a point where their services can be spread around. Oh, the hard working taxpayers won't mind either and relish the thought of paying more. Everything is fine, nothing of concern here. ...(full comment)

Baker says no to Syrian refugees in Massachusetts

Thank you Maryanna for your well written editorial of your dinner experience at Applebee's. The empty dinner place at the table is for all the men and women who died for our country as well as the missing in action. A candle for guidance to their heavenly home along with a red rose to show them love and the lemon for all their bitterness they had witnessed. Freedom isn't free it is paid by all those who gave their lives or live with disabilities today. ...(full comment)

Letter: Veterans Day tribute

Good example of right wing pandering. The U.S. vetting process is very robust and multi-layered. It typically takes 1.5 to 2 years for an application for asylum to be processed. Secondly, immigration policy is the sole domain of the federal government, so Baker is just posturing. ...(full comment)
