Two disclosures for the price of one: I built the Reporter's new Web site, and made a point of turning on its polling function, and I used the word "jake" in the headline because the Herald didn't, which is very disappointing because I thought the Herald had a standing rule to always use the word "jake" in stories about Boston firefighters. Also, dear Herald: If you write about an online poll, would it kill you to link to it?
