Flaherty's fix for the BRA

Letters to the Boston editor, August 21, 2009
Your recent article regarding the upcoming preliminary election for mayor of Boston, inaccurately portrays my proposal for the Boston Redevelopment Authority (BRA), the city’s planning and development agency.

Harvey Silverglate is right.

Sympathy for Palin, advice for Gates

Letters to the Boston editor: August 7, 2009
I found your article on Sarah Palin ("Sarah, Inc." July 17) to be surprisingly informative and balanced. Usually when there are media articles about Palin, they are loaded with personal attacks against both her and her daughters — something we Republicans call "PDS," or Palin Derangement Syndrome.

Power puffs

Letters to the Boston editor, July 24, 2009
Regarding “ Weed Picking Up Speed ”: if health outcomes determined drug laws instead of cultural norms, marijuana would be legal. Unlike alcohol, marijuana has never been shown to cause an overdose death, nor does it share the addictive properties of tobacco.

Free speechifying

Letters to the Boston editor, July 17, 2009
How can Dan Kennedy pick a list of people who trample freedom of expression without listing the mayor of Boston?

State of the State House coverage

Letters to the Boston editor, July 10, 2009
Adam Reilly made an erroneous assumption when he bemoaned the loss of State House news coverage with the downsizing of the Boston Globe . Fortunately, Boston is still a two-newspaper town.

System failure

Letters to the Boston editor, July 3, 2009
In the “Talking Politics” column “Mass betrayal,” you attribute our state’s long, sad history of corrupt politicians to the culture of the State House. You’re probably right.

Stonewalled: what a riot!

Letters to the Boston editor, June 26, 2009
I was excited to read the “Trail of Tunes” feature about outdoor music festivals in the Phoenix Summer Guide.

Right wing done wrong

Letters to the Boston editor, June 19, 2009
As someone who is Republican by party and conservative by inclination, I must take issue with your editorial “Right Wing Terror” on several fronts.

Art appreciation

Letters to the Boston Phoenix editor, June 12, 2009
The recent Phoenix editorial on state-government funding for arts and culture highlighted many of the challenges we face as we try to meet our aspirations as a community amidst a very difficult economic environment.

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.

Mixed messages

Letters to the Boston editor, May 29, 2009
I’ve always thought it bizarre that an aggressively conservative, Republican-channeling TV network such as Fox would be so enthusiastic about featuring sex (and other sensationalism), but I guess they know their audience.

Fascism in the eye of the beholder

Letters to the Boston editor, May 22, 2009
You claim that Dick Cheney was George W. Bush’s number-one thug. But I would argue that Bush was Cheney ’s thug.

The tax man speaketh

Letters to the Boston editor, May 15, 2009
I agree that we need to take a long, hard look at what we value in our state — healthy air and water, good schools, roads, safety — and figure out how we’re going to pay for it!

Law students luckier than the rest

Letters to the Boston editor, May 8, 2009
While I know it has been extremely difficult for recent law-school graduates to find employment this year, the data in Kara Baskin’s story was not accurate. Ninety-two percent of our class of 2008 was employed within six months after graduation.

We gladly accept

Letters to the Boston editor, April 24, 2009
I wanted to point out something to both the editorial staff and theater critic Carolyn Clay regarding her review of A Bronx Tale , starring Chazz Palminteri.

Unsexy is right

Letters to the Boston editor, April 17, 2009
Two weeks in a row your paper trumpeted the fact that Rush Limbaugh is at the top of your “Unsexiest Men” list.

Political sucker punches

Letters to the Boston editor, April 10, 2009
David S. Bernstein’s story about Governor Deval Patrick  is an example of going for the easy political jab rather than providing thoughtful analysis.

Fleeing factions

Letters to the Boston editor, April 3, 2009
David S. Bernstein’s piece on the resurgence of anti-government rhetoric in the last few months is a little unfair, particularly since it lumps together radical conservative Republican movements with the Libertarian strain of right-wing thought.

Award-worthy

Letters to the Boston editor, March 27, 2009
The amount of research that Jason Notte conducted for his extensive article on the surge in suicides in the military is worthy of a Pulitzer Prize.
