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!

No M Smith, she would not have an issue if you wanted to put a cross in your yard. That's theRead More point. It is you that wants to have that right while denying anyone else to have the same freedom.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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?

Surprised and pleased to see that the Patch covered the 'debate' and published a report. There isRead More so much more going on behind the scenes that a true news vehicle/reporter could investigate and report. Shout out to Splice...you saved me much typing time! And folks, please, do support Comm2A and GOAL. At least, go to their websites to educate yourself if you are unsure about the 2nd Amendment and what it really means.

One more thing : despite what we see on tv shows(sometimes I think that's where a lot of ourRead More politicians get there info), biometrics is not a foolproof technology. I've been privileged to know some of the tech leaders in the field and, although"pretty reliable", its not a panacea for gun violence. If instituted there is no doubt it would create an underground industry that would find ways to defeat any "safeguards" based on biometrics.

Because if you can get 10 or 100 or 1000 people to join in something, why not maximize their effortsRead More and volunteer to create a memorial or clean up a park and donate a bench or donate something to the MIT police rather than just flipping a switch.

WCSC screen grab shows charges against worker.

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.

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.
