    I agree with those that think that it is inevitable. But I think it is just a harbinger of things to come. Equestrian industry as a whole is shrinking, particularly in urban and suburban areas. ...

    Not as awkward as showing up at the unemployment office and being told that you are not eligible because you voluntarily abandoned your position.

    Don't be naïve. Some HR practices that appear...

    I can tell you that in my state (MA) you can collect unemployment not only if you were laid off, but also if you were fired for anything other than deliberate misconduct. So if your performance was...

    see u at x-
    I don't think that anyone is particularly surprised at this behavior. That's not the point. The point is to call out the NFL and the Team ownership and management for ALLOWING this...

    Strangely enough, Plainville, MA (where the track is located) got the first Massachusetts casino license awarded.

    Suffolk Downs closing

    For those who haven't heard, the Massachusetts Gaming Commission voted to give the Boston area casino license to Wynn in a neighboring town instead of to Mohegan Sun at the Suffolk Downs. The track...

    Oh, I had no intent to pick on quietann. I read her posts often enough to know that she is pretty much informed on everything. But her "oh I just listen to NPR and read The Economist, and never...

    I'm reading David Mitchell's new one- The Bone Clocks. It is pretty much a straight up fantasy. Anyone who liked The Ocean at the End of the Lane and Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children...

    I was pleasantly surprised to see this morning that Peterson has been barred from all Vikings activities. This was due to many NFL sponsors stepping up and putting pressure on the NFL and the...

    12 to 2. Now that's convenient for working people! :lol: C'mon. WBZ 1030. Local news all day long. Road closures, weather.... you know, stuff that can't wait until noon. ;)

    That has been my experience. Perhaps it is simply a Greater Boston phenomenon.

    I didn't know that. But I would certainly assume that the Boston area has a rather huge listenership? There is more than one NPR affiliate in Greater Boston (WGBH, WUMB, WBUR), and to my knowledge...

    You remind me of some other NPR listeners who I know. For some reason, they don't watch local TV news or local news radio and are blissfully ignorant about what goes on in their own communities.

    Well, he was indicted, so law enforcement did not have a weak response.

    Strange that people who would call it abuse if it were done to an animal, don't have a problem with it when the victim is...

    Adrian Peterson

    After the lengthy thread here about Ray Rice and the video of his domestic violence, I can't believe no one has started a thread about this child abuser yet.

    The photos of his 4 year old son's...
