Where’s The Gold?

I’d like to know if there is actually any gold left in Fort Knox or has that lock-box account been spent just as social security was? Due to the secrecy involved, I doubt even you can find the true answer. – Paul, Centerville

Curious About Registering Car

Am wondering how long someone can live in Massachusetts before they need to register their car here? I live in a large apartment building and roughly 1/4 of the cars (with stickers for the bldg, meaning they live here) have out of state plates. Don’t these people have to register and pay fees, be insured in MA, and pay excise tax to the local municipality? – Joe, Quincy

What If They Break?

Not too long ago, there was a push to rid our homes of thermometers containing mercury. Now, we’re being pushed to use compact fluorescent lightbulbs that contain mercury. This seems a contradiction. I am uncomfortable using a lightbulb that requires me to take special measures to dispose. I’m concerned about having these in my home. What are homeowners supposed to do if one breaks? – Joan, Haverhill
