By Meredith Goldstein Globe staff Sometimes I hear about a kind of jealousy between people in New York City and Boston. But it has nothing to do with baseball. It’s about a different thing. My single friends in Boston tell me it would be “sooo much easier” to find love if they lived in New York City. Those friends (and some Boston-area readers of my Globe advice column) believe that the dating options would be more plentiful in New York, and that there’d be a better night life scene for meeting strangers. They know for certain there’d be a more diverse dating pool — and perhaps fewer men on apps in TB12 hats. (Not judging the apparel, but that particular look and fandom isn’t for everyone.) Meanwhile, some of my single friends and readers in New York City have wondered whether it might be easier to find a partner in Boston.

By Washington Post PUBLISHED: December 27, 2018 at 6:55 am | UPDATED: December 27, 2018 at 6:59 am By Steven Rich and John Woodrow Cox | The Washington Post Locked behind their green classroom door, MaKenzie Woody and 25 other first-graders huddled in the darkness. She sat on the vinyl tile floor against a far wall, beneath a taped-up list of phrases the kids were encouraged to say to each other: “I like you,” “You’re a rainbow,” “Are you OK?” In that moment, though, the 6-year-old didn’t say anything at all, because she believed that a man with a gun was stalking the hallways of her school in the nation’s capital, and MaKenzie feared what he might do to her. Three times between September and November, bursts of gunfire near MaKenzie’s public charter elementary school led DC Prep to seal off its Washington campus and sequester its students. During the last one, on Nov. 16, a silver sedan parked just around the corner at … [Read more...] about ‘What if someone was shooting?’ Numerous school lockdowns are traumatizing kids
