Health Insurance??? Who does not have it? Who needs it?

There are so many reasons why people do not have health insurance. It is not offered through my employer, it is so expensive, I don't know how to get it on my own... Are any of these really worth the penalty? It is now a law in Massachusetts for all residents to have health insurance. I am sure a lot of people got hit with the tax penalty in April if you did not have proof of health insurance for 2008. The fee that you may be forced to pay in April 2010 may be more than $1,000 depending on your situation. Why throw this money away?  Read more

A two-alarm fire caused $350,000 in damages and brought at least eleven fire trucks and over fifteen additional emergency response vehicles to 39 Saint Margaret Street this morning. The Boston Fire Department received a call at 11:13 a.m. for a house fire at the owner occupied three decker. The first floor of the Dorchester household was unoccupied, with the second floor occupied by the owner and the owner's children lived on the third floor. All of the residents escaped injury, but a firefighter was hurt in a fall inside the dwelling.  Read more

Introductions!

Figured I'd get the ball rolling and see what part of Dot everyone is from.

I live in the Polish Triangle area of Dot, on Roseclair street just a few steps from Edward Everett Square and the great Pear statue. I've lived here pretty much my whole life, apart from a few brief stints in Los Angeles and Chapel Hill, NC.  Read more
