Each morning in Sharon, the doggy version of Waiting for Godot now plays out, thanks to the Globe

Thunder the dog waits for the Globe

DM Nelson reports Thunder's morning job used to be to go out to the driveway and retrieve the morning Globe. But now, "he's ready to file for unemployment."

I'm still doing the same thing - no paper again today.

However, I did get an email from the Globe encouraging me to read the e-paper.

I feel Thunder's pain. I received my paper most days in the first week of January, but now I have been forsaken. No papers this week. :(

I can't even fathom

How this is still an issue.

It should never have been an issue int he first place, but ok, there was a huge F up.

THis is not rocket science. Newspapers have been delivered on these very streets to these very homes for what...a couple of hundred years?

A recent article I read said that 6000 papers never even left the distribution centers. Clearly, either someone forgot to assign them to someone or the someone forgot to pick them up or there were communcation problems. None of these things seems to be difficult to solve.

This has been going on for weeks!!

Globe hypocrisy - Commonwealth nails it

Globe highlights its own hypocrisy

Monday, January 11, 2016

A little over a year ago, the Boston Globe ran a Pulitzer Prize-winning series of editorials documenting the challenges facing food service workers-- wages too low to live on, minimal job security, few organizing rights, and the risk of wage theft.

More than 200 people commented on the SundayGlobe story, many of them wondering how the liberal newspaper could fail to practice what it so often preaches on its editorial pages. "I remember when the Hyatt outsourced its housekeeping, the Globetook on the social/corporate aspect like a dog with a bone. Why is this different?" asked one commenter. Another said he planned to increase his tips. "I am ashamed to be a participant in this abuse," he said.

There was also a short letter from a commenter toGlobe owner and publisher John Henry. "Please sell the Globe to Arthur T. Demoulas. He knows how to run a business, treat his employees fairly, keep his customers happy, all while making a few bucks."

Groucho Marx

Reminds me of a great line from Groucho Marx,

"Outside a dog, a book (newspaper) is a man's best friend, inside a dog, it's too dark to read."
