      You needed to witness Boston's "Big Dig" to see the ultimate union/pork barrel project. Every pickup truck within 100 miles drove to Boston to earn union wages for a decade. Thousands of cops...

      There are jillions of recovering alcoholics with the exact same problem. The normal dating thing revolves around bars/restaurants/clubs and alcohol. "I can't do that because I'm an alcoholic" isn't...

      I'll match Auberge de L'Ill in Alsace against any restaurant in France. Sure, you'll find a lot of choucroute garnie, tarte de l'oignon, and pate foie gras there and the wine comes in funny...

      I'm old enough that when I was in middle school, older brothers of classmates were coming home from Vietnam in body bags. Nobody my age wanted anything to do with the military.

      I would support 2...

      The toll roads in Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts are in great shape. Don't condemn the whole Northeast because of New Jersey. Personally, I think the only solution is to make them all...

      At least with Subaru, "invoice" is the new sticker price since everybody goes online and looks up "invoice" price. At $600 under, the dealer is still making plenty in holdbacks and incentives.

      I'm kind of surprised to hear vocational schools and vocational track doesn't exist most places. It's big here.

      In Massachusetts, the regional vocational-technical high schools are run by the...

      I'm a part-year resident so I couldn't even if I wanted to. My dad was on the school committee for 20 years. A friend of mine just resigned in disgust from his school committee slot last fall. ...

      When we have dedicated lanes for computer-driven cars, those lanes will roll along with only minor separation between cars. It's the only viable long-term strategy for dealing with traffic jams. ...

      In Boston, thousands would pass on the right and cut in front of that driver. Even 2 car lengths is enough of a gap that some massive pickup or SUV is going to cut in front of you and obstruct your...

      Let's do the math. $200K mortgage. 30 year rates are about 4%. 15 year rates are about 3.15%.

      In 15 years with a 15 year mortgage, you own the house free & clear. With a 30 year mortgage,...

      I live 1/4 mile from salt water in the summer. Cars around here don't have anything like the corrosion issues Vermont cars have. In Vermont, you have a solid 5 months of road salt.

      I'm kind of laughing at this. Unless you park the car in a garage all winter and don't drive it, any car driven in the northeast that is parked outdoors is going to have corrosion issues after 10...

      A 15-year mortgage is in the low-3%'s. You get to write off the mortgage interest. That pushes the real rate down into the 2's after accounting for the itemized tax deduction. You're putting the...
