    Four Massachusetts teens who say they were sick of watching the state drag its feet on global warming went to court — and yesterday came away with a historic victory that could have lasting effects for decades. The Supreme Judicial Court has sided with Olivia Gieger and Shamus Miller of Wellesley High School, and Isabel Kain and James Coakley of Boston Latin School — high school kids who sued the Department of Environmental Protection. The court agreed with them that the state has failed to fulfill its legal obligation to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. “It’s so surreal. I always

    This is what democracy looks like! jubilant insurgents screamed last night as they lay siege to the University of Illinois at Chicago pavilion, effectively choking off the exercise of free speech at the Donald Trump rally. Black Lives Matter activists, Bernie Sanders supporters and other assorted revolutionaries then stormed the streets and tussled with police, Trump backers and anybody else who got in their way.

    Bernie Sanders blazed across the Bay State yesterday, drawing record crowds, name-dropping Elizabeth Warren and greeting rapturous crowds on his first campaign tour of Massachusetts. As your senator, Elizabeth Warren, reminds us: This is a rigged economy. Heads, they win. Tails, you lose, the self-avowed socialist told more than 20,000 Boston supporters. Were going to create an economy that works for the middle class and not just the 1 percent. The Democratic hopeful first stopped in Springfield, and then made his way to the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, where he drew deafening cheers with his signature impassioned pledges to...

    Recent history shows that predicting a decline on Donald Trump’s popularity is risky for pundits. Nevertheless, there are some signs that his appeal may be wearing thin.  But keep in mind that many pundits (and probably pollsters) have an animus against Trump (and his followers), and polls can be manipulated in many ways. Here are the straws in the wind: The Boston Herald reports on New Hampshire: In a major shake-up of the GOP pack in New Hampshire, front-runner Donald Trump has lost nearly half his support while two longshots — Ohio Gov. John Kasich and businesswoman Carly Fiorina...

Yet watching the GOP candidates and Fox News moderators shape and prioritize the nations most pressing problems Thursday night, one couldnt help but wonder: Does Black Lives Matter matter to them at all?

The video, taken from a camera placed across the parking lot, shows officers approaching a person authorities identified as Rahim after he walked to a bus stop on Tuesday morning. A marked Boston police cruiser arrives to the scene as Rahim walks into the parking lot surrounded by several officers, the video shows. Officers appear to have their guns holstered before drawing them as they back up from Rahim. After a few moments, Rahim then drops to...

    The former governor of Florida, John (or as he prefers to be called, Juan) Ellis Bush, doesn't appear to have a lot of support among Republicans, as opposed to Republicans in Name Only (RINOs), who absolutely adore him. But Juan isn't sweating it. He's rolling in dough, and more importantly, he's rolling in opponents. Have you ever heard of a "straw" candidate? When you have a weak front-runner that can't reach 50 percent, often a third, or a fourth, or even a fifth candidate suddenly jumps into the race. If he has a name similar to that of the strongest...

But Palin, despite the smears back in 2008, is a lot smarter than the left-leaning press has ever been willing to admit. I would like to see women run for the higher office. I think America certainly is ready for more female candidates at that upper echelon, Palin told Mario Lopez on Extra when he asked about a Clinton run.

Who needs an unfriendly reporter shouting an unscripted question at you, or checking to see whether any of the guests are getting government contracts? We all know Obama has an aversion to tough questions. During the campaign, he would refuse to engage with most local media, and reporters who camped out at the rope line got a stern talking-to from a campaign staffer. But using the White House press...

He is claiming momentum in his race against Democrat Martha Coakley for the Senate seat held by the late Edward Kennedy. Coakley was traveling to Washington Tuesday for her own last-minute fundraiser. Independent Joseph L. Kennedy no relation to the senator is also a candidate in the Jan. 19 election.

    You can sort of see why newspapers aren't taken as seriously as they used to be. The Boston Herald, like the Boston Globe, can't quite seem to bridge the gap between political correctness and reality. The whole thing is too weird to contemplate. A man who is in prison for murdering his wife dresses as a woman and is suing to make the state to pay for various sex-change treatments. The case is before a limousine liberal federal judge, Mark Wolf, who seems to be accidently doing the right thing. (Wolf is the same judge who ruled that David Parker...

    CHICAGO The Boston Herald is dropping its distribution deal with Uncle Henry's Swap or Sell It Guide due to complaints the classified publication helps spread guns in the inner city. "Our relationship has been severed," Herald spokeswoman Gwen Gage said. "There's concern that firearms for sale in the book end up on the streets of Boston, and we didn't want any part of that."

    Margery Eagan of the Boston Herald has done it again. She's unleashed her deathless prose filled with soaring rhetoric and high concepts all revealing her infinite sagacity. OK, that was just sarcasm. In truth, Eagan has given us another example of the sort of low-end, guttural, sputterings that we have become so used to seeing drip like sour milk from her pen. Her latest Boston Herald piece is a prime example of the unprofessionalism that pervades her work. In a posting titled "Men in throes of Supreme panic," Eagan gets into her best name calling mode against all those eeeevil...

    Hey, Janeane Garofalo, how do you like your tea? Its been a few weeks since the outspoken comedian and actress (24) called tea party tax protesters racists, but she is still in hot water with some Bay Staters. A group of steamed citizens led by conservative radio talk host Ken Pittman of New Bedfords WBSM-AM plan to protest outside her gig tonight at the Somerville Theatre. She has exposed herself as a bigot, Pittman said. About 20 to 40 people are expected to show up, he said. Garofalo sparked controversy when she criticized the protesters while on MSNBCs Countdown with...

    Howie thread for the week starting with his Sunday Herald column. Note that I believe he is on vacation from the radio show this week (Sandy said Avi Nelson will be in on Wed & Fri; not sure who else--maybe Jeff Katz again?) If there are any other columns (not sure) I'll post...

    Tells Herald party has no leader Conservative talk titan Rush Limbaugh told the Herald that while hes the most prominent national figure actually tying Barack Obama to his policies, the Republican Party doesnt actually have a leader to take on the new administration. The Republican Party and the conservative movement are two different things. I have nothing to do with the party, Limbaugh said yesterday in an e-mail. Clearly, the GOP has no leader right now, and they wont until a viable presidential candidate surfaces. I have no idea who that will be. The right-wing radio host has emerged as...

    Like a Nixonian Nanook of the North, Sarah Palin emerged from her igloo this week whining, griping, giving me an excuse to trash her again and you an excuse to call me unspeakable names in the comment section beneath this story online.

    Another sobering start to an exceedingly sobering week - but one which points to the need for a political leader who is steady in the face of crisis, mature in judgment and able to reach across the aisle to break the gridlock that has for too long gripped Washington. That man is Sen. John McCain and at this critical moment in history, this paper is pleased to endorse his candidacy for president of the United States. McCain won a lot of hearts and minds around here in 2000, and we cant help but wonder how history might have been different...
