Re: “La Boca Wood Fired Pizzeria

A long-awaited and welcome addition to the North End. I broke my long-standing rule and went within the first week of opening and I do regret it. It took over an hour to be served. 45 minutes for the salad alone! While the appetizers were yummy, the pizza was under-cooked and bland. When you dine at a wood-fired pizzeria, your expectation is for a thin, crispy pie. The pie they served us was too thick and as a result undercooked and doughy. The service was okay--our waitress was friendly, but we rarely saw her--but the noise was painfully loud. I am glad to hear that they will take steps to remedy it. Despite my poor dining experience, I will go back and support this restaurant because we need local eateries in the NE. Hopefully they will work all the kinks out and succeed.

Re: “Burlington Activist Takes Aim at 'White Supremacist' Mural

While the issues of racism, colonialism and understanding the complexities of our history are of central importance in a plural democracy, I can't help but think that this is just a stunt by a talentless artist to draw media attention and notoriety to himself and his organization.

Re: “A Student Shortage at Saint Michael's College Leads to Existential Questions

While Saint Michael's may be facing difficult economic decisions, it will endure and prosper. I am confident of this because the real value of Saint Michael's happens each day in our classrooms, laboratories and on the fields and buildings of our campus. You simply cannot quantify or measure the excellence of instruction, the enthusiasms and accomplishments of our students, our gifted athletes or our dedicated scholars. So while economic cycles will come and go, the life of the mind will continue to thrive at SMC!
