As several folks noted today, there were some odd things about today's City Weekly section in the Globe, such as the lack of any farewell messages and the fact that readers were invited to submit another cartoon caption entry.
Ron Newman dug up this Globe marketing page, which says the new regional zones start April 2, which means the Globe either pulled a Sopranos on City Weekly readers or they're giving us one last chance to say good bye.
What's also interesting about the new zones is that apparently Brookline readers will now get copies of Globe West (so they'll finally be able to stay up to date on those Westborough highway improvements - but also on what's happening in Newton). Somervillains, meanwhile, will no longer have to worry about missing any news about the Rowley school budget (but they'll also get some Medford news). And Cantabridgians and Bostonians? Sniff, we're just a blank spot on the Globe zone map, as if the sea level's already risen and flooded us out.
