Letter: Why the wall exists

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

I agree with Robert Azzi when he says that in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, there are competing narratives (Sunday Monitor Forum, July 27).

And while I take issue with several of his assertions, I will address just one. Azzi asks me specifically what I call a land divided by … 0

Editorial: The missing elements of excellence

Monday, July 28, 2014

Letter: A series of missteps

Monday, July 28, 2014

Market Basket’s implosion? Implosion is when an organization is destroyed by things that are happening within it. Case in point is the naming of co-CEO Jim Gooch at Market Basket, who was the former CEO at Radio Shack for 16 months. During his tenure there, share prices declined … 0

Letter: A call for compassion

Monday, July 28, 2014

How can we turn our backs on children fleeing from unlivable conditions in their home countries? How can anyone speak of family values and reject a child in need? Does it matter whose child it is? The worst nightmare for a parent is that any harm comes to … 1

Editorial: Law adds to the burden on third parties
