#HeartsOverCopley: A Simple Tribute Remains Strong 2 Years Later …
You've probably seen them before, but you may not remember them. They popped up all over the MBTA after the Boston Marathon bombings two years ago. In stations, on trains, and all over the news feeds across the city. Yet the highest concentrations existed in Copley Station and on the Green Line trains that pass through it.

Boston Restaurant Talk …
Two years ago, we reported that a celebrity chef might bring a location of his popular Manhattan emporium to Boston, and this winter we confirmed this, though its exact location was unknown at the time. Now we have just learned where the store will be, if all goes as planned.

A marriage proposal at Boston's finish line "definitely isn't the most romantic in the world," one former proposer says. So why does it seem to happen so often?

How'd you like to be Carmen Ortiz, the US attorney? Your boss, the attorney general, says it's your duty to seek the death penalty against Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. Your moral compasses, Bill and Denise Richard, say end the trial now, and let him live. Columnist Kevin Cullen wants to know, what do you do?

Being a Bruins fan right now sucks, as we are watching other teams play in the second season. But there is one thing we can do to ease the pain, that is to root against the Canadiens and their whiny, arrogant fans. If anyone touches their players, it's considered a crime .

It's time to dust off that puzzle, finish that quilt, or join a book club, according to neurologists. New research suggests that artistic and social activities done from midlife on will protect your brain from memory and thinking problems even in very old age.

Maybe Definitely: Oasis to reform as Noel and Liam Gallagher have 'gentlemen's agreement', report says …
Perhaps the resurgence of Blur was too much to handle, because that long-awaited Oasis reunion is starting to take shape. At least that's what the Mirror is reporting today, saying brothers Liam and Noel Gallagher have reconciled and started discussing reforming one of the biggest bands of the '90s and a leader in the Britpop movement.

Rita Jeptoo angers and frustrates clean marathon competitors - The Boston Globe …
There is closing speed. And then there is how Rita Jeptoo finished last year's Boston Marathon. On her way to a third Boston title, Jeptoo covered the final 3.2 miles in 15 minutes, 56 seconds, including a 4:48 split for Mile 24. Men's champion Meb Keflezighi covered the same stretch on the same day in 15:49.

It's official: Whitey Bulger movie called 'Black Mass' - The Boston Globe …
The Whitey Bulger biopic shot in Boston last summer is officially called "Black Mass," the studio announced Friday. It's hardly a surprise considering the film, directed by Scott Cooper and starring Johnny Depp as the notorious South Boston mob boss, is based on the book, "Black Mass: The True Story of an Unholy Alliance Between the FBI and the Irish Mob," written by former Boston Globe staffers Dick Lehr and Gerard O'Neill.

Daniel Nava had been a switch-hitter all of his career - "From the womb," he said on Saturday - but elected to give it up in spring training. It was a decision several years in the making. A natural lefthanded hitter, Nava has been significantly better from that side since he was called up to the majors in 2010.

Dreams and doubts collide in plans for global 'Expo' - The Boston Globe …
The idea, in hindsight, seems stunningly ambitious and maybe a bit mad: A World's Fair in Boston Harbor commemorating the 1976 Bicentennial, which would then be transformed into a floating city for tens of thousands of people to live and work, enjoying the latest in Betamax-era technology.
