Mumps at Boston University

This just in... Boston University is notifying summer students that one of their own was walking around campus July 1 & 2 with an infectious case of mumps, and requiring students to prove (if their records on file with Student Health Services don't already do so) that they're either vaccinated or immune, or they're going to be isolated from campus by the Boston Public Health Commission.

Red Line Shuttle

There needs to be a better system in place for getting people on shuttles buses @ JFK. Pure chaos tonight. Buses showing up and stopping in random spots. People charge for them like animals. There was one night last week wjphen they had a line which was more smoother. I had to wait(6 shuttles come and go) So aggravating Especially when you are trying to catch a bus @ Qui Ctr

Somerville Mayor on the T

Joe Curtatone, in Commonwealth Magazine, points out to the rest of Massachusetts that the Massachusetts economy depends almost entirely on the areas served by the T, and that the private sector isn't going to grow more jobs if we don't have a dependable way to get folks to work.

Joe's is my favorite of 5 takes on the T currently featured on the site.

No T service

Let me get this straight. So T Red Line service has resumed today, but only between Andrew and Alewife.. MBTA Alert states there is no Red Line service between Andrew and Braintree/Ashmont. No word of shuttle busses. Explain to me how this is acceptable. I need to work in Boston and live on the South Shore. The MBTA takes $ out of mtu check each month for me to utilize the train and subway. So I deserve to have service just like everyone between Alewife and Andrew. I feel if you can't run whole line then don't do this! I know I'm not alone on this one.

War on News?

In the last day or so, all the news boxes have mysteriously disappeared from my namesake neighborhood, around Mass. and Huntington. No more Improper Bostonian, no more South End News, no more Bay Windows, all banished from their convenient locations by Symphony Hall, in front of Whole Foods, and near the Green Line entrances.

The Blame Game is Killing Us! (USA)

THE BLAME GAME IS KILLING US! (USA)

It's so easy to point fingers
Play the blame game

He died, she died
Shot dead

So

Kill some cops
Shoot for the head
Remember your name
Gain some fame

It's easy to find a target
to hate

Easy to use race to bait

Blame the President,
Governors, Mayors
The Police

Agree Disagree
He said She said

Our country is at war
Us - Them mind set

No Peace

Yell, scream, rant, rave,
Comment, post, write, boast

All Lives Matter

All Lives Matter

BY Deb CH 2014

You may think I deserved to die
My family still will mourn, grieve, and cry

Do they have the right
Or just pretend I did not exist

Innocent victims in harms way
Never to live another day

Such a damn shame we say

Police running to save a life
Soldiers facing war and strife

SWAT in the midst of a hostage crisis
CIA, FBI chasing ISIS

First responders on the scene
Firefighters in the heat and flame

Someone died, now who to blame

Ferguson for our Turkeys

As we observe the unrest in Ferguson and the protests spreading across the nation I can't help but bear witness to the lack of concern for the Turkey genocide celebrated by you, America's illegal occupants. Some 400 years ago several true Americans shared a meal of our feathered ancestors with some squatting, starving Euro-trash. Since that fateful day over a billion of our brethren have been sacrificed to celebrate the theft of our lands and its pagan holiday of thanksgiving. So as you lift that drumstick to that pasty double chin you'd better look over your shoulder. Turkey's are back.

God Sees Red

God Sees Red

Look at my people, my created
Killing, angry, murder at the drop of a pin

Some don't realize the trouble they're in

Jealousy, revenge, hate

Using guns
Hastening the death rate

I look at my children
I see red

Their blood - red
My anger - red

My Son's Blood - red
Shed for their sins

My tears I shed
When I can't welcome them in

If my people who are called by my name
Would humble themselves, pray, turn from their Gun Violence ways......

Shots Fired!

SHOTS FIRED....

Shots fired, shotspotter on, 911, what's goin on?
Tires squeal, bullets fly, oh God I hear a baby cry!

Sirens wail, an old woman frail... falls down...her heart begins to fail.
Police, ambulances, a man, blood on his face, will they live?
Maybe... God's grace.

Curious neighbors gather round, some just stare at the ground.
In some houses lights go out. Now I hear a young man shout
"He shot my brother! I'll find him quick!"...The anger in his face, makes me sick.
