Missed opportunity at the Globe

Why didn't they run that book excerpt about Whitey Bulger in Love on Valentine's Day? Who doesn't love a good romantic yarn? OK, one in which the protagonist was busy choking one girlfriend to death in front of the other until an underling pulled him off her, but still.

Barnicle's heyday coincided with Whitey's reign of terror

Indeed. I realize that Mike Barnicle's Boston Globe heyday coincided nicely with Whitey, er, "Jimmy" Bulger's reign of terror. How nice it must have been for the serial killer to have the Globe's marquee columnist running interference.

They already did a story on this book last weekend (Valentine's Day weekend). Now they're on their second story, trying to milk the book coming out as much as possible.
