I've studied science and religion (many degrees, certifications etc.) taught religion, worked inRead More observatories, as an a night assistant and as an astronomer and I would like to know just what your belief system is. I suspect you are Hindu and you believe in Kali. When Obama laid of 50,000 of us working for NASA and affiliates, he then gave full four year scholarships to 20,000 Hindu interns that took our NASA careers. I was told this from directly within the Indian Government because I moderate an international group for astronomy and aerospace technology. We here going to continue funding the ISS while handing our seat over to that government yet retain the sole cost of removing it when it is retired. Meanwhile China, Russia and India each are working on their versions of our now retired space shuttle as we opt for technology obsoleted and shelved before our first shuttle launch. Now the Hindu from that group are calling the Christian faith a superstition (yeah, in a science and technology group) that needs to be wiped from the face of the Earth and replaced with the Mother Goddess Kali, also a Goddess of Death I believe. I get the impression you are one of those....??? Comet Hale Bopp was a somewhat recent (to me) comet that you could have photographed and measured its element and proved yourself wrong. You could still go back and look at photos other such as myself actually took. The amount of force it would have taken to blow a comet away from earth with that amount of mass and that type of velocity, would have left only rubble here. So a Kali believer right???? I don't suppose you are also a Thuggee? I just haven't quite heard your version of faith and science the way you have put it so I am curious.

It says Around Town but the headline is UTAH. Utah is not near Natick!! I think everyone should notRead More open an article on Patch unless they see their town's name in the headline. So If it doesn't say Natick, then we all know it is not LOCAL to the Natick Patch. The less clicks these Patch sites get, the fewer advertisers they will get and then perhaps they will realize if we want sensational news from across the country we'd go back to Patch's former owners AOL and the HuffPost! Those here from other Patch sites - I think you should do the same only click on articles that mention your community's name. No name. No click!

I am a Christian and have accepted Jesus Christ as the only begotten Son of God as my Lord andRead More Saviour. Some of you posting must not have actually heard what Pastor John Hagee said. What he said was, that when other blood moons ocurred that something significant ocurred regarding the Jews, the blood moon of 1492 and the expulsion edict to remove all Jews from Spain, the 1948 blood moon Israel became a nation, the 1967 blood moon and the six day war resulting in some Israeli land being reclaimed. Pastor Hagee said NOTHING about the end of the world ocurring to coincide with the four blood moons ( he did however say people would say he did - which looking at these posts some have misconstrued his words). Perhaps all the posters that are commenting on what Pastor Hagee said should actually hear what he said PRIOR to commenting/mocking/judging. Pastor Hagee and his statements. Perhaps, in time, we will see if the government of Israel has made a significant decision today. Personally (my very own personal opinion- no Biblical prophecy just me), I hope they decide NOT to ever release any more terrorists from prison to bribe the palestinians to "talk" about making a peace agreement.....just saying....

@Joanne Malia: What in the world are you trying to say? Obviously you and a couple of others on thisRead More thread have issues with Republicans. That's fine. But the topic is paternity leave and a thoughtless remark made by a sports commentator. People make fools of themselves regardless of their party affiliation. I'm a nurse, a mother, and a nice person. And you don't know me but you'd probably dislike me because I'm also a Republican. Please don't judge people or make nasty remarks like the one you posted here. It shows shallowness and immaturity. I hope you are a better person than your comment makes you out to be.
Metro fares increase. (Patch file photo.)

$1.00 surcharge for using the paper fare card purchased at the gate, you got to be kidding me. TheRead More metro has lied about not seeking funds to complete the rail. Va has done many taxes that is suppose to fund this rail and still loses money on it.
Kim McCoy March 28, 2014 at 03:40 pm
...and while you will be paying more to ride the metro, you get the added benefit of a 30% increaseRead More in snatch-and-grab robberies! I'm so glad Virginia was forced to spend all of our tax dollars on a metro expansion for people from Maryland and the District to come over here and take Virginia jobs while also being able to snatch a new phone or bicycle on their way back to where ever they came from!
Liz March 29, 2014 at 08:32 am
What a shame that metro doesn't increase the quality of their service at the same rate as theyRead More increase their fares.

These individuals who will be speaking, take away your rights; and they will lie to keep it that way. Illegal marijuana is a violation of the Freedom Of Religion, and drug testing is used to eliminate a hated and unwanted minority group from society using the threat of death, is a violation of the Right To Privacy. This is what the speakers stand for.
Storm forecast for Sunday night, Monday.
Raul Ortega March 16, 2014 at 08:03 pm
I'm a little confused by this statement "The forecast calls for a mx of rain and snow earlyRead More Sunday evening", is the forecast calling for a matrix algebra interpreter and numerical optimizer for structural equation modeling, an Internet Mail Exchange DNS record, or a share in Magnachip Semiconductor Corp? Got spell-check?

Very many big lottery winners report that they used a quick pick (lucky dip). Maybe there'sRead More nothing really much in it, but quick picks certainly do seem to be more lucky.

This winter storm has absolutely no name associated with it. The for-profit Weather Channel comes upRead More with these ridiculous winter storm names. I'm shocked that a news outlet like Patch would use a name that was assigned by a commercial entity. The National Weather Service - the official source for storm names - DOES NOT assign names to winter storms!
