Popcorn Column
by Michael S. Goldberger  
  Lloyd and Harry haven't learned anything in 20 years - thank goodness.

It takes some pretty smart writing to make the title characters appear as stupid as they are in "Dumb and Dumber To." There is wit in the Farrelly Brothers' reprise to their 1994 imbecility, an explorative zeal and talent for delving far more dopily into ignorance than any farce has dared to stumble. It's almost as difficult and accomplished a task for us intelligent folk to shed our self-respect for 110 minutes and enjoy the guilty thrill of laughing aloud at the goofiness purveyed.

Thanksgiving will be observed on Thursday, Nov. 27. The day is a national holiday inspired by the first Thanksgiving dinner shared between the Pilgrims and Wampanoags in 1621 at Plymouth. The living history museum Plimouth Plantation continues the tradition each year with a recreation of the event in which visitors can participate.

Thanksgiving was first federally recognized by proclamation in 1863 by President Lincoln at the height of the Civil War. It did not become codified as a national holiday until 1941, when President Roosevelt signed a law setting it as the fourth Thursday of November. Canada holds a similar celebration on the second Monday in October.

LENOX, Mass. — Aid to cities and town's won't be cut in order to close a gap in the state budget.   The governor proposed cuts last week by some $25 million to help close a budget gap, heavily influenced by the triggered reduction of income taxes.   The unrestricted aid would drop to fiscal 2014 levels, which Gov. Deval Patrick had originally proposed.   But House of Representatives officials won't bring that to a vote.   "Understanding the vital role cities and towns play in providing services and jobs, I will not support a reduction of unrestricted local aid," said Speaker of the House Robert DeLeo in a statement Thursday

The U.S. Senate rejected passage of the Keystone Pipeline by one vote this week. The controversial energy plan will be back on the agenda, however, in January. For most of us, separating fact from fiction as both sides alter the facts is difficult at best, but here are some things we do know.

First, we can describe the project. The proposed Keystone XL project consists of an 875-mile stretch of pipeline and related facilities that will transport 830,000 barrels per day (bpd) of crude oil from Alberta, Canada, through Montana, South Dakota and Nebraska. It will then connect to existing pipeline facilities that flow through Nebraska, Oklahoma and ultimately down to the Texas Gulf Coast

While summer vacations and national holidays typically provide a break for everyone who would be considered a member of the working public, there is one big break ahead that’s a priority on most everyone’s calendar — retirement. 

And while it may be closer for some than it is for others, everyone needs to make sure they are financially prepared when the time comes to take a permanent leave from the ranks of the employed.  Personal circumstances make planning for retirement different for each individual, but there are several considerations that apply if you break it down by the amount of time you have left until you retire.

To the Editor:

The Scenic Railway's retirement of its Berkshires History museum-car will surely disappoint the donors who contributed in excess of $110,000 in cash and labor to create it. How sad to read on the Internet, “This exhibit is now closed" — and not just sad for the lost investment.

This was the only educational facility in existence dedicated to covering the entire county’s beginnings, from exploration and first settlement in the 1700s through the cultural ascendancy of Tanglewood and Jacob’s Pillow today.

It’s true the displays emphasized South County, which is where settlement began and the Gilded Age flourished. The collection of
