"10:30 p.m. Fireworks begin" ----- Ordinarily, I would disagree with a party-pooper, butRead More this one's not for the faint of heart. Hot, limited bathroom facilities, overpriced concessions (if you can get through the fifty-person-long lines). If you really want to watch live, consider watching it from the Meadow Glen Mall area or another point with a decent view. Or ... TV!

Went there once years ago, never again. Far too crowded, if you take the T and want to get outRead More quickly, make sure you run like the wind to the nearest T stop the second the last firework goes off or you will be stuck forever waiting for a train. As already covered, very limited bathrooms and extremely over priced food and drink. I think that the new security limitations were thought up by the concessions operators to make a little more money. Better to watch on TV or go to one of the many smaller town fireworks displays. http://www.bostoncentral.com/events/massachusetts_fireworks/p21018.php

I believe a permit is required in order to erect a tent in your yard.

Your doing a fine job Aly! Unlike what people say, times are not that different today than theyRead More where years ago. What is different is peoples perception of them due to 24/7 media and its sensational nature. You see it all the time now. If I'm not alarmist about everything, I'll be considered a bad parent. Just plain crazy. There is also something else psychologists call recency bias. In short, we view more recent events as more important than distant ones even if they are identical. The one exception might be the internet freaks. We didn't have those yet back in the day. Keep up the good work.

People have different risk tolerances. When I was a kid, my neighbors and I could play outsideRead More unsupervised during daylight starting at about age 6. We lived on an extremely quiet street in a safe area, moms were always home, and we traveled in packs. As an adult I live in a busier area (more traffic), and my son usually played with only 1 or 2 other kids. A lot of the neighbors had dogs. He wasn't allowed out without a responsible adult and a cell phone until he was 10 or 1. All it takes is one encounter with the wrong person, car, or dog to have bad results. Younger kids often don't have the best judgment about which animals and people to approach, which trees to climb, etc. Keeping a watchful eye on them is important IMO. All it takes is one mishap to lead to problems

I refer you sir to Black's Law Dictionary I refer you to Common law, pls reread the ruling. PoliceRead More can not just assume everyone is drunk or has beem drinking. The Sgt Captains Military i know all say its a bunch of crap...to put it mildly blunt. Originally Supreme Court ruled it was ok, but since has over turned that citing Police can ask questions but we are not obligated to answer any questions without reasonable suspicion of a crime. Sir i have spoken to Supreme Court Judges, Constitutional Lawyers,honorable and truthful ones, and study the ratified 1791 Constitution regularly. Please send me your case law and ill review it, but im accurate about my sovereign individual RIGHTS
Marshall Ottina December 19, 2013 at 01:29 pm
Read Michigan Dept. of State Police v. Sitz, in which the Supreme Court declared: "TheRead More checkpoint program is consistent with the Fourth Amendment because “the balance of the State’s interest in preventing drunken driving, the extent to which this system can reasonably be said to advance that interest, and the degree of intrusion upon individual motorists who are briefly stopped, weighs in favor of the state program.”"
osende monteiro December 19, 2013 at 01:54 pm
Again States rights were upheld by 11 states which said violating individual rights does not justifyRead More the means. Sir give up your rights if you want, COMMON LAW TRUMPS ALL...! JUSTICE Stevens was correct did you read his statement or only Reniquest decision. FBI reports show as well as the public servants they can do more on normal duties than blanket everyone as guilty as in a checkpoint. Read carefully , we live in the commonwealth of Massachusetts, common law and constitution takes precedence. Supreme Court ruled blac weren't human, do you think they were correct, mhmmmm didn't think so, know your RIGHTS instead of challenging me on common law...ps btw Dr Stotsky tonight, Wilbraham Public Library 6:30 challenge her on her merits and on COMMON CORE CURRICULUM, sir...and dnt worry about grammar partner, focus on my message... i am not your enemy. Truth is all i seek, i spoke out on NCLB with Bush and now this crap, also my uncle's and cousins oppose checkpoints all on Miltary State Police Lawyer and two Judges i know, trying understanding the history of checkpoints before you agree to that crap in America. Article 61 Manga Carta Common Law, case laws, Jurisdiction applies as well, but seriously are you afriad of truth, it seems that way. You cite a case but you fail to mention States RIGHTS,common law, jurisdiction all of which apply... so in the famous words of Archie Bunker there...case closed !
