It says Around Town but the headline is UTAH. Utah is not near Natick!! I think everyone should notRead More open an article on Patch unless they see their town's name in the headline. So If it doesn't say Natick, then we all know it is not LOCAL to the Natick Patch. The less clicks these Patch sites get, the fewer advertisers they will get and then perhaps they will realize if we want sensational news from across the country we'd go back to Patch's former owners AOL and the HuffPost! Those here from other Patch sites - I think you should do the same only click on articles that mention your community's name. No name. No click!

Oops, forgot my Fourth comment: King O. and E. Holder are the biggest GUN RUNNERS IN THE USA TODAY.Read More They authorized selling weapons to known Mexican criminals, a federal offense. In the stupid course of Operation Fast and Furious, four people at least were killed by these weapons, including a US Border Patrol Officer. Can't blame THAT on Bush, but the Leftists always try, don't they?

to Issy: Quote: "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come toRead More destroy, but to fulfill............Mathew 5.17" ------------------------------------------------------------------- Jesus IS the fulfillment of prophecy. As the Messiah, he ordained a NEW COVENANT. Those who claim that the Old Testament dictates are wholly applicable to Christians simply haven't read the NEW Testament critically. --------------------------------------------------------------------- Issy: You didn't read the whole argument. Continue Matthew 5. The new covenant (which actually began with Jeremiah 31:31) is BETTER than the written Law. Jesus begins at Matthew 5:21 each remark with "You have learned that our forefathers were told" and then he goes on to state what the Law says and then what HE says. The Law says you can divorce your wife. Jesus says you can't. The Law says don't commit adultery. Jesus says don't even look on a woman with a lustful eye lest you commit adultery with her in your heart. The Law says you must be brought to judgment for murder. Jesus says you must be brought to judgment even if you nurse anger against your brother. Jesus says: You have learned that they were told: Love your neighbor, hate your enemy, but what I tell you is this: Love your enemies and pray for your persecutors, only so can you be children of your heavenly Father who makes his sun rise on good and bad alike. You took your remark right out of a context that completely invalidated it. Thanks for making my job so easy.

Issy March 21, 2014 at 03:09 am
So apparently only you are allowed to spin the bible and allow yourself the godly right of ignoringRead More the parts you don't like, although Jesus was very clear that the Old Testament must be followed (but don't take his word for it)................... The simple fact is that Jesus never said anything about homosexuality, yet some Christians, have no problem using the Old Testament to condemn gays............ So according to you if the OT gay bashing and the 10 commandments are not applicable to Christians how can they justify their rabid opposition to homosexuality?

oldfed March 3, 2014 at 05:10 pm
Guess what, climate change is a better, more accurate term than the debunked global warmingRead More nonsense. It's occured thousands of times in the Earth's history. Both sides on this issue can agree on that, can't they? But, IMO humans didn't cause it directly, and cannot alter or stop it. The most critical negative human impact here is simple: too many people! Most of the Third World has NO access to birth control, and the vaunted UN doesn't seem to care. Even China relaxed it's stringent one-child-per-couple policy. Helping people limit their numbers might mitigate this problem. But I refuse to agree w/the Leftists Dems that we are some how to blame. Also, scientists who believe this theory make their paychecks off of scaring citizens, so they're incapable of being neutral.

Yes, I suppose we do have a dichotomy. On the one hand we have a bunch of Liberals flapping awayRead More about global warming or climate change or whatever the in-vogue term is as well as alternative energy. These folks are yakking it up with the folks trying to sell something - ie. The ESCO multi-level marketing folks and the solar and alternative energy sales people. On the other hand, you have a bunch of folks, myself included, who are more politically aware and are discussing a highly regulated business (the futures exchanges as well as the energy providers) in the context of what our Liberal leaders are or are not doing about it and, from a political ideology standpoint how we got in this mess. Congratulations on being a grown up.

I commute daily on the Harlem Line. My morning train bypasses the station almost every morning. SoRead More commuters waiting for that train are combined with the next locale train. The train is overcrowded with people not just standing in the vestibules but up and down the aisles. I have been late so often this winter that I am forced to take a train that leaves 30 minutes earlier. When your commute is already close to two hours that extra 30 minutes is a hardship. This,by the way, is never announced on the TV or radio news and you won't find them acknowledging it on the MTA website. We have shared the Harlem line in the past with Danbury commuters due to track problems or accidents. MTA does not run extra trains they like overcrowding trains. I have called the MTA and complained and encourage every commuter on the Harlem who has been consistently inconvenienced to do the same.

They operate a virtual monopoly. When a business has a monopoly they need only provide the bareRead More minimum. The sheeple can bleat all they want but what is their alternative? Why not get a political loudmoth attention seeker like Schumer or Abinanti to yip and yap in the media about the issue? They love anything that gets them in front of a camera and Abinanti is so desperate for attention he writes blogs on the Patch.

My 5:37 am train was canceled this morning because of mechanical difficulties. The local ran late.Read More Yesterday's commute was an absolute mess with people standing in the aisles. I second your comment that service is taking a nosedive, to say nothing of the fatal accident of which no one has been held accountable. The politicians are just taking us for a ride.
Elmb February 15, 2014 at 07:17 am
Running a Saturday schedule on a Friday before a holiday weekend was absurd. I tried to catch theRead More 5:47pm from Grand Central and every car was filled to the brim with standing people to the doors. The 6:22pm had 10 cars and also was overfilled and unsafe. Heaven forbid if this train would have derailed or hit something, there would have been fatalities and many injured. You can't safely squeeze so many standing people when they have nothing to hold on to. Riders pay a premium for substandard conditions, late or cancelled trains and what should be an illegal monopoly. In the northern Westchester and Putnam county areas, we are encouraged not to drive (for a green environment and less road traffic) yet our one and only commuting alternative is the train (no bus service). It's about time our local politicians take interest in this ever-growing issue. I dare any politician to ride the MNR Harlem line for one week and maybe we would get some results.

" Myself, I didn't spend my life in front of a computer, I spent 30 years working in places all over the world, often in Third World dung-heaps most Americans never even heard of. I've heard of, and run across, lots of people like this, idiots who thank that they're immune from danger simply because they're Americans. Once, when an acquaintance wanted to buy property in the Dominican Republic because he thought it was a beautiful place to live, I advised against it because I knew FROM EXPERIENCE that the D.R. was a country that people risk their lives to escape from, not move to. He disregarded my advice, and now he's dead. The daughter of another friend wanted to become an exchange student in Egypt. I advised against it because I had often been in Egypt, and knew what the Egyptians were like, and that it was a dangerous place for a young American girl on her own. In the end she didn't let her daughter go, and now her daughter is pissed at her. However, subsequent events proved me 100% right, and the mother is glad her daughter never went to Egypt.
