CEO pay has soared 937 percent between 1978 and 2013, while the average worker’s climbed just 10 percent, experts say
A growing effort to limit CEO pay - The Boston Globe …
The soaring pay of corporate chief executives is spurring efforts to pass laws to limit their compensation and close the widening gap in earnings between workers and top executives. Such laws have been proposed in at least three states, including Massachusetts, as well as in Switzerland.

RT @BostonGlobe: .@GlobeOpinion says yes on Question 3. Editorial board calls 2011 #macasinos law a mistake
Yes on Question 3: Pull the plug on flawed casino law - The Boston Globe …
Through the looking glass of Massachusetts politics, yes means no, and casino gambling means sustainable economic development. If voters can disentangle the first contradiction, though, at least they can get rid of the second: Voting yes on ballot Question 3 would mean no casino gambling in Massachusetts, repealing the state's misguided 2011 casino law.

WORLD SERIES: Royals squander early lead in Game 4 loss to Giants …
The plan this postseason has been pretty straightforward for the Kansas City Royals: Take an early lead and then hand the game over to a terrific trio of hard-throwing relievers. A four-run third inning provided the lead Saturday night.

Yes on Question 4: Earned sick time for all - The Boston Globe …
QUESTION 4 on the November ballot is a sweeping measure that would provide all Massachusetts workers the chance to earn sick leave - in many cases, with pay. If passed, the referendum would put Massachusetts in line with a handful of forward-thinking cities and just two other states, California and Connecticut.

Contrasting Portraits Emerge of Shooter at Washington School - The Boston Globe …
MARYSVILLE, Wash. - If the bullet-scarred American psyche has an archetype for a school shooter, it looks very little like Jaylen Ray Fryberg. He wasn't a loner or a known misanthrope - far from it. He was a football player with a million-dollar smile, popular enough to be elected homecoming prince of his freshman class at Marysville-Pilchuck High.
