Tweedie-Sylvester nuptials

From page B3 of today's Boston Globe.

If Tweedie and Sylvester can put aside their differences and find true love, maybe there is hope for resolving other longstanding conflicts.

Mystery bride after wedding in Harvard Square

Globe's Crux site going away

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.

Also, the Globe will also smush the BetaBoston tech site into the paywalled bostonglobe.com.

The memo from Globe Editor-in-Chief Brian McGrory and bostonglobe.com General Manager David Skok: Read more.

Merry Christmas!

Christmas……Don’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 “wants” 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 habits….. It’s on them.

Message to Laura from Germany in Coolidge Corner

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 begins:

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.

H/t eeka.

Fathers teach your sons..

Anger and jealousy are human emotions. Using violence will not solve the problem....
Guns and knives?

Accountability and consequences for your actions. Anger management, self control.

Teach your children well.
