Remember the Swine flu? Avian flu? Avian Flu 2? Nothing ever happened. These are scare tactics byRead More big Pharma to sell more and more drugs. Ask your doctor if your ready for Celestia or whatever is being pushed on TV this week. If I have to ask my doctor if I'm ready for 'X' drug I've got the wrong doctor.

Right John. Watch the commercial for the drug du jour. Fifteen seconds of how wonderful the productRead More is and 45 seconds of side effects which are usually worse than whatever it was you had in the first place.
John Santaella April 20, 2014 at 07:45 am
I often wonder why anyone would want to use any of these products. It often seems the cure is worseRead More than the disease. The ones I love are the ones for mental problems. They only work in 1/3 of the patients. 60% is passing in school yet in these 30% is acceptable. But ask your doctor if ''X'' is right for you. What's happened to our society? And, why do they use young people to advertise Viagra? I'm laughing right now but it's not funny.

Governor Christie should also do away with the $25 charge to file my taxes electronically. I canRead More send them via the post office for the cost of a few stamps. Doesn't make sense... Think about it, I need to send NJ $25 to get my refund sent to me?????

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!

The U.S. tested atomic weapons out west and gave countless people cancer. They gave black menRead More syphilis a while back just to watch the course of the disease. It would be nice to think that the chem trail notion is a joke, but there are some intelligent people out there who are quite convinced there is something to it. Frankly, nothing would surprise me.

In the 1940s if one said cigarettes cause cancer the response would have been just like yours,Read More Hookerman. Not so funny now that we know the companies KNEW that but hid it from the public. My father in law was a smoker, got hooked, and died from lung cancer.

Today’s Daily Record has an interview with Suzanne Buchanan, who is executive director ofRead More Autism NJ. It’s an interesting read, but a couple of points. When she is asked about the number of those diagnosed, she answers; “…the CDC’s most recent study identified all children who met the diagnostic criteria. Many of them had a formal diagnosis, and some did not”. Later, she is asked about the diagnostic criteria, and she answers; “Differentiating autism from other disorders, such as ADHD, OCD, and Anxiety Disorder requires a thorough diagnostic evaluation by a physician or psychologist with autism expertise”. So, without a full diagnostic evaluation, autism very well may be misdiagnosed, and she admits earlier than some who fall into the autism statistics never were formally diagnosed to begin with. To me, that means that the numbers are probably much higher than they actually are.
The northbound travel lanes on the Route 1&9 Pulaski Skyway will be closed for approximately 24 months while the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) rehabilitates the bridge deck.

It's about time they started to make repairs on the Pulaski Skyway, it's been literally fallingRead More apart for years! I heard there is even some controversy with the Port of Authority paying for much of this renovation. It is an access road to the Holland Tunnel, but The Port of Authority isn't responsible for The Holland Tunnel roadways because The Holland Tunnel was there before The POA. I guess the gov. and his people do whatever they want with his own little slush fund(POA).
Marlboro Mann April 13, 2014 at 08:50 pm
Lets hear it for the NJDOT. They could have started the work on Christmas, Palm Sunday, or AshRead More wednesday, but they chose instead to begin the chaos on the first day of Passover thus ensuring that the large percentage of Jewish workers arrive late at work but most importantly arrive home long after the sedars are to begin. Anti Semitism? NO Piss Poor Planning? Yes!

Patch, you're selling out. Let this family figure out their junk without gawkers. You can do betterRead More than this - this is NOT news, it's sensationalism.
MissElanyS April 17, 2014 at 08:49 am
@triptakers, what do you expect from the Patch? They are no longer reporting news and have fired allRead More of their professional staff and hired people off the street with no experience or journalism training whatsoever. Even the National Inquirer has more experience on their writing staff than the Patch. What you are reading here is bird cage liner.

It is a terrible thing to do to your family, the engineer and the emergency people who have to cleanRead More up. At 18 it's awful to contemplate the sadness. I hope he finds peace. It's know that engineers suffer from these events, often for years. PTSD among cops and emergency responders is often a result of seeing these things none of us in the civilian world will ever confront.

Oh dear. So young too. I was on a train with a tresspasser fatality October 2012 around the sameRead More area. Horrible.

@ OE Defending him or merely telling you of my experience in attending 2 Town Halls? My ownRead More experience is that although like others here, I disagree on some political points, I found him surprisingly accessible. After one of the events, he actually chatted with THE PEOPLE afterward in the parking lot, and although I'm a nobody, even I was afforded an opportunity to have a brief exchange with him out there, about an issue I was concerned about. This article in no way resembled my own experience at either of the events I've attended. Just sayin....
ER April 10, 2014 at 01:16 am
p.s. One of the reasons he stayed to chat with THE PEOPLE outside the venue, was that theRead More attendance was so beyond what they had expected, many folks did not get into the building and he felt bad they had come to the event and the place wasn't big enough to hold them all.
