In the 21st Century, this is a topic for debate? Really?? Not only is this woman protected by theRead More First Amendment, she's also protected by logic and common sense.

Seems like a load of BS to me, let her have her plate. Some of these DMV folk get a little carriedRead More away with their power of VETO! LOL We had a plate once denied and all it was was a Spanish word that some nit wit thought was a part of a female genitalia!

It's marketing 101. Meet the common folk where they are. Reminds me of a few weeks back when theRead More Catholic elites in Massachusetts were giving the big thumbs up for a jump in the minimum wage. Of course these same guys say NOTHING when Bacon Hill wants to raise regressive fees and taxes.

Manufacturing like Amgen in West Greenwich were built with union labor because the Non unionRead More construction management company( Flour Danlels ) from Texas could not find the quality craftsmanship to take on such a huge project. They went so far as to pay above the prevailing wage to secure the quality work. So unions set the pay rate and you gladly reap the Benefits. So to set the record straight the Engineers were hired right out of the union halls from across the country. Mostley Cad Desigineers and Pipe Desigineers.

No Mr. Filippi III It is politicians who failed to pay the negotiated portion to the pension funds.Read More The workers were never and still are not allowed to not contribute to "their" pension and move that money to an alternative retirement vehicle. It is a travesty that people who worked all their lives are now being told "sorry we renege". What is worse is the attitude such as yours that blame the unions. I suppose El Nino' and Climate change are caused by the AFL -CIO as well.

The Michael's store in Everett was breached. Calling there gets the manager who refers you to. 617Read More 381 8102 This person will refer you (eventually) to the following website to register your card(s) for free identity protection and credit card monitoring Https://michaels-aronbros.allclearid.com The real answer is for credit card companies to issue cards with embedded chips rather than magnetic stripes. If you feel up to it, call legislators. What is Homeland Security doing spying on us instead of protecting us from things like this? According to the Store, they learned about the breach in January. The Patch could have supplied this website in the article it published yesterday, but didn't. I made about five calls to get this information and still had to press the contact person specifically about ID theft and credit card monitoring to get it. I was told by Michael's that if something happened, they would contact me, that is, if they had my information, like an email address. I was also told, separately, that "The Everett store was impacted." I had to supply the address of the individual store to get that. Where is consumer protection in this picture?
jpf2361 April 19, 2014 at 01:38 pm
It's about FRIGGIN time these retailers are held accountable for the DAMAGES they cause toRead More consumers. I am not talking about the Fed's imposing fines of which we the Consumers don't see a penny of either. Why can't these Companies INVEST IN BETTER TECHNOLOGY TO PREVENT THIS FROM HAPPENING IN THE FIRST PLACE? Just saying.
linda pearl April 19, 2014 at 04:27 pm
Why is this trending again, when this took place last year, basically.... Between getting hit atRead More Target and Micheal's, I had to change my debit card twice in a very short period of time.

Ok........lots of happy people here. When my children were young we hid eggs in the yard for theirRead More hunt. One dog used to collect them before we went outside and put them on his bed, smelling the candy inside. Kids learned to trade dog treats to get their eggs back. A different kind of egg hunt- and I miss that dog.

I love the people who have nothing to add to the conversation so they throw either Obama or gunRead More control in. Either subject are worth debating at another time. But this conversation has nothing to do with either.

People, remember -- There are FOUR subway lines that go into the Downtown Crossing / Back Bay area.Read More You don't HAVE to take the Green Line. The ORANGE line goes to Back Bay Station, and it's pretty centrally located. Also, consider watching the Marathon from a less-populated area, such as Framingham / Newton / Needham. The runner will appreciate it, and so will the security folks.
Heather A. McDonald April 19, 2014 at 09:36 am

I understand that with success comes notoriety. So while I am a not surprised by the level ofRead More interest you all have in that family, I am surprised that it is not just left at that. I am surprised that people from this area would resort to posting elementary school comments. I thought we were a little more refined than that. So many comments about the father, his family or employees and not one comment about if the kid is ok? If the father specifically did something to you and you want to come out and share your experience of why you think he’s this or that, then go ahead. But to sit here and ambiguously post comments about things you heard, that have no real impact on you, makes you look childish or jealous
Kristi April 19, 2014 at 10:53 pm
Why the hell is this kid smirking in his photo??? Is this the picture from ear biting arrest orRead More assault of his girlfrend? Quite a concerning picture.

NO -----SHE DESERVES WHAT SHE GOT..- She STABBED STABBED STABBED..she should have gotten the deathRead More penalty.....but michigan has only life in prison. Don't have sympathy for her just because she's a woman. She's a cold blooded killer and deserves what she got.
RON Ostrodamus April 19, 2014 at 03:11 am
The death penalty certainly cuts down on the record number of incarcerations in America. Enough ofRead More this liberal crap on humane punishment. The word "humane' never enters the minds of these cold blooded killers. What is going to happen if another bombing takes place outside of Texas? What is going to happen with the next airplane hijacking, or Boston?

Don, the comments were made at sentencing, not at trialso it hss no bearing on her conviction.
WCSC screen grab shows charges against worker.
Igor April 19, 2014 at 09:39 am
HF the charges were dropped. There is a problem because and I quote from the Patch"Lewis saysRead More he never noticed "No Free Re-Fill" signs and admits he had refilled his drink without paying on other occasions" and "On-site construction worker Chris Lewis told WCSC News he didn't know refills at the VA Medical Center in downtown Charleston weren't free."Where did you read that he knew he had to pay for it? No where in the article does he said he knew it.

It sure helps that I'm a little old lady because I just bring my cup from home from the last time IRead More was at a store. The last time I paid for a drink at costco was probably before the terrorists attacked us on 9-11. What's the big deal here, it's only soda? If this guy wants free drinks, it's none of your business, and non of the business of that nosey cop neither. You people don't get it, it's flat out entrapment by having the soda available. What's next, you expect me not to use my dead sister's handicap placard too?
