From sports to politics, food to finance, aviation to engineering, to bitter disputes over simple boundaries themselves, New England’s feuds have peppered the region’s life for centuries. Ted Reinstein, a native New Englander and local writer, offers us fascinating stories, some known, others not so much, from the history of New England in this fun, accessible book. Bringing to life many of the fights, spats, and arguments that have, in many ways, shaped the area itself, Reinstein demonstrates what it really means to be Wicked Pissed.

Ted Reinstein has been a reporter for “Chronicle,” WCVB-TV/Boston’s award-winning—and America’s longest-running, locally-produced—nightly news magazine since 1997. In addition, he is a regular contributor for the station’s political roundtable show and writes a weekly opinion column. He lives just west of Boston with his wife and two daughters. He is also the author of New England Notebook. Sign up!
Wednesday, Oct 26, at 7 pm: Type II Diabetes Diet Update: Fierce Food, Smart Supplements, and a Spark of Chi for Repair
When people hear that they have diabetes (type 2), the language and culture of the medical industrial establishment gives them the impression that they now and forever will have this 'disease”. They are told that they will need medicine to manage this problem for the rest of their life! I want people to step back and take another view and ask yourself, 'Why this insulin resistance now?” Are there some parts of me that are stressed and in need of repair? A smart diet is still far stronger for managing blood sugar than any medicine, and eating well need not be a major hassle. Cave men were nourished, without stoves and refrigerators, so there are no excuses for you. Find out what you need to know! Sign up!

Charles Smigelski is a Groton resident and Registered Dietician with 30 years of experience in nutritional counseling, lecturing, and research.

Made possible thanks to the generosity of the GPL Endowment Trust.
