    Dirty Old Boston

    I was told that a few of the Community Voices blogs will be kept. Hard to imagine they'd dump Dirty Old Boston.

    The editors didnt know about OBF?

    I, anonymously, acuse the editors of either lying or not ever reading their website. OBF has been prominently featured on Boston.com. I'm going with the lying theory.

    I can't say I'm surprised, since one of the featured blogs has been trumpeting "Did anyone get engaged this Valentine's Day?" as its headline/most recent post for six weeks now. If you can't bother to update at least weekly, you shouldn't have a news blog.

    Would you blog for the Glob under your real name? I certainly wouldn't.

    Kevin Paul Dupont is also leaving the globe. He is a racist, and generally a sub-quality human being. Good riddance.

    and yet he was courageous enough

    to use his own name and not play the race card anonymously. So apparently it takes a sub-quality human being to recognize another one.
