We need to stop litter and keep Massachusetts clean by spreading the word about the Yes on Question 2 campaign.
The Bottle Bill is the most effective recycling tool we have. Eighty percent of bottles covered by the Bottle Billâ€™s 5-cent deposit are recycled. Yes on Question 2 would add a bottle deposit to water, sports drinks, tea, juices, and other drinks that were not included in the original bill because they were not popular when the law was passed in 1982.
We need your vote on November 4 to update the Bottle Bill.
Keds, which it turns out is headquartered in our very own Lexington, wants Vans to stop putting little blue rectangular logos on the back of its sneakers.
In a lawsuit filed yesterday in US District Court in Boston, Keds says it's been known for its "Blue Label" logo since 1925 and that the Vans logos might make people think the sneakers have that Keds quality, when, in fact, they're just some California company's attempt at footwear.
Plus, Keds charges, Vans signed an agreement in 2012 to knock it off with the little blue rectangular logos and now it's doing it again.
J.L. Bell fires grapeshot at the notion that the Battle of Lexington supposedly started with a verbal volley in which a Redcoat commander demanded the Minutemen put down their arms in the name of George III, the sovereign king of England and a minster retorted that "We recognize no Sovereign but God and no King but Jesus."
Besides the fact that none of the dozens of participants in the battle who wrote down their recollections of it ever mentioned the alleged exchange, the minister who allegedly made the retort wasn't even on the Lexington Common that morning.
