“We like it that way,” she said. “We don’t want any thugs at the club.”

You'll never guess who said this, and about what. Read the article and this statement shows up......

Is The Country Club too exclusive even for Tom Brady?

Just how exclusive is The Country Club in Brookline? We’re about to find out.

Word around the club’s meticulously manicured grounds is that Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and his supermodel spouse, Gisele Bundchen, whose mansion is just an errant tee shot away, would like to join. But it’s not clear if the club famous for understatement and insularity will accept the glamorous power couple as members.

Why? Because the 133-year-old institution prizes privacy and discretion above all else. And Brady and Bundchen, trailed as they often are by paparazzi, and occasionally controversy, attract the sort of attention abhorred by the multimillionaires who belong to the primrose playground on Clyde Street in Chestnut Hill.

Ok, I've watched Zoo for you so now you don't have to.

Didn't care for it.....premise acceptable, but the acting? The actors/actresses just do 't make it for me....just don't care for it. Anyone else?

Since when did tenure become a liberal icon??

Scott Walker takes on another liberal icon: tenured professors.....

First, Gov. Scott Walker defeated public-sector labor unions. Then, he declawed their private-sector counterparts. Now, just weeks before his expected entry into the presidential race, the Wisconsin Republican is staring down another conservative target: college professors.

The trifecta could cement Walker’s reputation among conservative Republican primary voters as a bold leader willing to battle entrenched interests of the left in the name of reform.

But faculty at the state’s universities — backed by national higher education groups — say he is risking the quality and prestige of one of the country’s leading state universities to fuel his presidential ambitions.

The clash of values echoes many that have erupted since Walker took office after the 2010 election. Loud, polarizing debates have punctuated the Walker years. The attention they received has catapulted him into the front ranks of those seeking the GOP presidential nomination. His campaign, expected to formally launch next month, is largely built around his image as a fighter for conservative causes who has won key battles.

In this small city, the University of Wisconsin’s flagship campus, long seen as a liberal bastion, sits less than a mile from the state Capitol, and the lines between the conservative governor and his liberal opponents are sharply drawn.

Professors fume at what they regard as a multi-pronged attack. Walker’s allies say he and the Republican-majority Legislature are carrying out a mandate for reform on behalf of beleaguered taxpayers.
