Republicans continue to wage war on women

Plus, Beacon Hill follies, youth violence
The Republican Party's unrelenting war on women is now being waged with such frenzied fury that sane people might well wonder if there is a GOP-wide obsession with punishing an entire gender.

COMIC: The illustrated history of Boston's future, 2020-2100 AD

Forget politicians, economists, or inventors -- the future of Boston belongs to the comics
We approached this future-Boston project as a sort of moderated "jam comic." Result: post-singularity MBTA robots, Menino clones, Citgo aliens, and donut zombies.

Local experts predict the Boston of the future

Best Decade Ever
There's more to imagining our city's future than placing bets on when Hizzoner will retire (which is just an exercise in futility at this point).

Terror and the MBTA: You don’t look harmless

 Freedom watch
Racial profiling meets war on terror: The highest federal court in New England has said it’s okay for government officials single out dark-skinned people for searches,  as long as they can concoct some cover rationale, ginned up with vague allusions to terrorism.

A blood-boiled appeal to the young and bewildered Boston newbies

You again?
You students are back. We locals, many of the best of whom began our lives here as scholar-transplants from that Other America ourselves, know this without consulting a calendar.

The 13th Annual Muzzle Awards

A look at the dishonorable enemies of free speech and personal liberty in New England
A year and a half into the Age of Obama, we are learning a lesson we should have figured out long ago — that repression, once in place, is rarely rolled back all the way, and that liberals no less than conservatives are reluctant to give up power.

Wiping out the competition

Those fucks at the MBTA have hit a new record

Pedal promise

The ongoing perils and recent improvements en route to a riding renaissance.
Boston has its fair share of deserving bad reputations: the sports fans whined for some 86 years about a “curse” because the Red Sox couldn’t seal the deal; the drivers are terrible; and, thanks in no small part to those driving skills, the city’s streets were thrice voted by Bicycling Magazine as some of the worst in the country for cyclists.

Patrick's latest train wreck

Plus, an Israeli diplomat does the right thing
There is no doubt that Governor Deval Patrick had — and has — much better ideas about reforming and restructuring the state's transportation infrastructure — including the Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority — than the legislature.

The 12th Annual Muzzle Awards

A look at the dishonorable enemies of free speech and personal liberty in New England.
With the era of repression and secrecy fostered by George W. Bush and Dick Cheney finally over, this should be the best of times for freedom of expression, open government, and civil liberties. Yet change comes slowly.

Shoddy work or just sensational?

Letters to the Boston editor, June 5, 2009
Unless you are transgender yourself — and given the content and tone of your article I would venture a guess that you are not — you have no right or privilege to discuss issues regarding disclosure of trans status. Much less do you have the right to discuss how disclosure, or lack thereof, may relate to issues of shame or truthful disclosure.
