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.

Bride says groom does geeky stuff.

H/t Ginnette for the headline.

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.

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

Inciting riot? Inciting calm?
Call for healing or harm?

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

All lives matter
Young or old

Corgis

Bouquets are just so passe, right? An area bride-to-be is looking for corgis that her bridesmaids can hold during her wedding ceremony instead of wilting flowers. She's already got some, but needs six more:

This next April, I will be getting married to the man of my dreams and we will be having the most wonderful storybook wedding that Boston has ever seen. The icing on the cake is sweet, but there's one thing that would be even sweeter than that. Traditionally, bridesmaids' hold bouquets; in our wedding, I want them to hold corgis.

Love lock in the Public Garden

Boston Strolls spotted a love lock permanently affixed to the Public Garden bridge (or at least until somebody from the parks department arrives with a bolt cutter), wonders when this became a thing in the Public Garden. Until now, local love locks had been confined to the bridge over the turnpike at Mass. Ave. and Boylston Street.

Red Line wedding

Or maybe there's a sentimental reason. Whatever, yes, that's a wedding party on the Red Line. Jason Robert got a snapshot of the lucky couple and their party this afternoon.

He reports they got on at Harvard and were still on the train when he got off at Park Street.

Paul MacMaster wondered:

Maybe Sob Story Guy will offer a toast...for the price of a train ticket to Worcester.
