The light and trolley poles along South Huntington Avenue in front of Angell Memorial Hospital are now lined with pages of a plea for a reconnection from a man who wants to see the woman whose dog bit him, now that she seems to be taking a different path with the dog. Read more.
John Henry is shutting down Crux, the site for Catholic news. Layoffs, of course. The Globe is handing the domain over to John Allen, whom it had hired away from the National Catholic Reporter, and who could try to keep it going on his own.

Iâ€™M THANKFUL NOW FOR SHELTER, FOOD, AND A PORTION OF GOOD HEALTH!
BEST WISHES FOR YOUR GOOD WANTSâ€¦.. AS WE ANTICIPATE THE NEW YEAR!
Christmasâ€¦â€¦Donâ€™t get caught up in the guilt of not having/spending enough $$$$$ for Presents and Gifts
If how much you spend, or buying what the persons â€śwantsâ€ť determines your Merry Christmas....... stop, think about this; Materialism has bankrupted some people,
Some are on the way there, and some are recovering from it.
If anyone is not pleased with you changing your gift giving habitsâ€¦.. Itâ€™s on them.
Seems Mike did a lot of things involving numbers the other night - except getting Laura's digits, that is. Cory spotted the flier in Coolidge Corner yesterday.
I met you in the rain on the last day of 1972, the same day I resolved to kill myself.
One week prior, at the behest of Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger, I'd flown four B-52 sorties over Hanoi. I dropped forty-eight bombs. How many homes I destroyed, how many lives I ended, I'll never know. But in the eyes of my superiors, I had served my country honorably, and I was thusly discharged with such distinction.
And so on the morning of that New Year's Eve, I found myself in a barren studio apartment on Beacon and Hereford with a fifth of Tennessee rye and the pang of shame permeating the recesses of my soul. When the bottle was empty, I made for the door and vowed, upon returning, that I would retrieve the Smith & Wesson Model 15 from the closet and give myself the discharge I deserved.
I walked for hours. I looped around the Fenway before snaking back past Symphony Hall and up to Trinity Church. Then I roamed through the Common, scaled the hill with its golden dome, and meandered into that charming labyrinth divided by Hanover Street. By the time I reached the waterfront, a charcoal sky had opened and a drizzle became a shower. That shower soon gave way to a deluge. While the other pedestrians darted for awnings and lobbies, I trudged into the rain. I suppose I thought, or rather hoped, that it might wash away the patina of guilt that had coagulated around my heart. It didn't, of course, so I started back to the apartment.
And then I saw you.

A couple of researchers analyzed how American men refer to their best friends and according to their research, New Englanders much prefer "pal" over "bro," "dude" and "buddy." CAVEAT: The research is based entirely on an analysis of tweets, so it's not corrected for possible variations in how men on Facebook refer to each other.
