There are 1,500 parking places under Boston Commons Park. Could there be parking under the new park planned near the new Vikings stadium? It would free more surface area for other development, rather than just for parking garages.

TERRORISM

The distinction between Lanza and Tsarnaev

“Why are some terrorists vilified more than others?” (May 19) The distinction between Adam Lanza and Tamerlan Tsarnaev is easy. It is not a difference in religion or heritage. The weight of the crime does not lie on how many people were killed or injured.

Tsarnaev intended to kill and maim as many people as he could at a high profile public event. His actions were political in nature. He was a terrorist. Lanza killed more people, many more. But his motives were personal, not political. He was mentally ill, not a terrorist. The distinction is easy.
