[NOTICE]: If you object to burglars getting shot, here's how you can personally do something aboutRead More it -- post your home address right here online AND put a conspicuous sign on your door assuring burglars that you will not shoot them. If everyone who feels like you did these simple things, we could realistically cut down on the number of burglars who get shot in the act. YOUR MOVE.

Lots of important things going on. One being Russia slowly taking over portions of the UkraineRead More under false pretenses of "protecting Russian speaking residents from aggression by a US backed terrorist regime", and we get stories on peanut butter and fluff.

The Fluffernutter SHOULD be the symbol of Massachusetts POLITICIANS at all levels. - - - They wasteRead More time on FLUFF and NUTTERY. - - - But, perhaps, it is not entirely the pols fault. The lapdog media must share part of the blame. - - - A case in point: This stupid story made Patch, but hugely wasteful public works projects and gross public sector union contracts are never mentioned. - - - But the pols know perfectly well they will NEVER be held to account for ANYTHING, because they can distract the media and the public with nonsense like a state sandwich. - - - I think we should have a 'state horses anatomy part'. I leave it to the reader to figure out WHICH part I'd suggest... HINT: Look under the tail.

This is a great article. If your financial institution has guarantees on fraudulent charges and theyRead More try to stick you with the bill or change certain terms and conditions without consideration or notice, make sure you seek legal advice from an attorney.

Being a First Lady of Arkansas and the USA was not of her doing. She married into it, as BillRead More Clinton was the Governor and President. Hillary just went along for the ride!!! So how can these two on your list be considered to be HER ACCOMPLISHMENTS????

You come across as pretty angry there, thingy. You shouldn't let me get to you so much.

Cops got a chance to play with their toys. Relax people. It's not like you had to respondRead More personally. Stop saying it's a waste of money. Then money is absolutely minimal. These guys were not called away from their golf games. I would also like to compliment the responders for not accidentally killing someone. It showed professionalism and did not add to the "trend" of killing "innocent" people; which is becoming an issues to watch. The people incensed over this should focus their anger on plastic shopping bags as many others are doing over at another great Patch piece. Evil lurks at the checkout counters across America!

Actually if you go to the USNews link above and check the state, the ranking is out of 322 MA PublicRead More High Schools and 30 Charter Schools. FYI-Framingham HS offers the 2nd most amount of AP classes ranking only behind Boston Latin.
