9.48 pm. A spontaneous round of applause for executing people! And Perry shows no remorse, not even a tiny smidgen of reflection, especially when we know for certain that he signed the death warrant for an innocent man. Here’s why I find it impossible to be a Republican: any crowd that instantly cheers the execution of 234 individuals is a crowd I want to flee, not join. This is the crowd that believes in torture and executions. Can you imagine the torture that Perry would authorize? Thank God he’s doing so poorly tonight. (via Live-Blogging The Third GOP Debate – The Dish | By Andrew Sullivan – The Daily Beast.)

9.57 pm. My take-away? Perry has proved himself an extreme, inarticulate, incurious W clone. He doubled down on the vicious attacks on social security; and his rhetoric was off-key. Huntsman emerged a...

Confused about school-lunch subsidies? A recent New York Times op-ed laid it all out, detailing just how agribusiness turns cheap, healthy, whole foods into expensive, processed junk that’s then fed to schoolkids, all paid for by tax dollars: The Agriculture Department doesn’t track spending to process the food, but school authorities do. The Michigan Department of Education, for example, gets free raw chicken worth $11.40 a case and sends it for...

I'm really disappointed to hear that the Portland market closed down.

I wouldn't mind seeing half of Quincy Market returned to market space, instead of being 100% mall food court as it is now.

Twitter still a much better tool for tracking breaking news like storms, earthquakes, etc. Not sure if G+ can ever match up in this area.

Wow. Perry starts with a premise here -- "Abstinence ed. works" -- and doesn't even know how to formulate an answer to a serious question about whether it's actually working in Texas. Fascinating little glimpse into Perry's psyche and "values" politics in America.

From a more generous angle, Rick Perry knows that, regardless of the efficacy of the abstinence ed, the teen pregnancy statistics are way up in TX because of the Hispanic/illegal immigrant population. It's true. But he knows he can't say that in front of a camera b/c he's pulling for the Hispanic vote. So he gets stuck trying to fall back on his "old fashioned" support of the curriculum. The interviewer probably knows that he will be stuck taking the politically correct route, so he enjoys cornering and confronting Perry with his hands tied.

And Perry could have equated a more compromising "realistic" Sex Ed curriculum to a DARE program that teaches students how to only use clean needles instead of dirty ones, and how to find reputable drug dealers that have a non-violent record...

Just trying to give the guy some credit, but I still think he's a wolf in sheep's clothing. Or a wolf in wolf's clothing.

Story
Tagline
I love to tell stories.
Introduction
A Connecticut native, I bounced around from Georgia to Memphis to Texas (picking up degrees in journalism and theology in the Lone Star State) as a young adult before "coming home" to Boston in 2006. My wife and I have two fantastic human children and one mischievous poodle child.

My writing has appeared in The Boston Globe (and the Globe Magazine), Boston Magazine, TakePart.com, Edible Boston, The Atlantic Cities, and numerous other online and print publications. My portfolio highlights can be found here.

When not writing, I enjoy running, exploring New England with the family and great conversations with friends about politics, religion, or adoption over a cup of locally roasted coffee or pint of Belgian ale.
