Getting rid of a gas stove in good condition

I have a gas stove in good condition that I want to get rid of. Salvation Army's donation pickup line in my area (Boston) never answers my calls and never returns my messages. What other options do I have? Also, I was told by the stove salesman that selling the stove wasn't a good idea because I'd be liable if the purchaser hooked it up wrong and poisoned or exploded themselves. Is this true, or was it just FUD?

Where can I go stargazing in the Boston area?

Where can I go stargazing in the Boston area? I want to take my wife to see the Leonids next week. Where can we go in the area that's as dark as possible but is convenient, comfortable, and legal?

Generic dancing class?

I'm a nerdy white boy from the Northeast. I dance like a nerdy white boy from the Northeast. I want to dance like.. well.. I just don't want to embarrass my wife when we're at weddings/parties/clubs. Are there any classes I can take analogous to "conversational" language courses? I really don't want to learn swing or ballroom dancing or anything in particular. (A class somewhere near Boston would be ideal.)

South Boston memorial: what's the story?

In South Boston, at the intersection of Babe Ruth Rd and Columbia Rd near Carson Beach, there's a stone memorial. There are four names inscribed in it, along with ages (all between 16 and 20) and date of death (all June 19, 1982). There's no explanation, besides a mournful poem. What's the story? [more inside]

Good Boston photography store

I'm moving to Boston in the next couple of months. Is there a good, big photography store in or around the city? Not just the local Ritz to get my film developed; I'm thinking somewhere with the technical breadth of B&H in New York. I'd like to be able to get 120 film, used lenses, developing chemicals, etc. Any suggestions? (I realize I can order from B&H online, but finding somewhere local would be preferable.)
