The Globe tweeted this breaking news today.
The other day, the New York Times wrote about the South Boston snow pile that will not die. The Washington Post today follows up with a report on how Bostonians apparently think that's funny. Here's hoping somebody at the Chicago Tribune (hint, hint) follows up with a report on what we think about the WashPo coverage of the Times coverage.
The Herald reports Andrew Costello is recovering from the attack off Ocracoke Island.
The NewBostonPost hasn't started posting anything to its $2-million Web site yet, but its Facebook feed gives you an idea of what to expect: Photos from the Cambridge dance party, news of sunscreen dispensers in Boston parks and, oh, yeah, commentary on how a tyrannical Supreme Court is going against the laws of nature and trying to make women fathers and men mothers.
At the same time, Americans need to seriously reflect on their willingness to defend basic principles of freedom that are now in jeopardy.
Mike Deehan aims to fix that.

When do you suppose the Globe will pick up on the Herald's exposÃ© of the Patrick administration's $27M
slush trust fund? I mean, it's been five days now since the story broke.
The latest in a series of editorial calls to action on how the Olympics can reshape every single facet of life in Boston.
It's no secret that kids need to eat their vegetables to grow up strong and healthy and become productive members of society. And yet, so many Boston children refuse to eat their kale and their lima beans. We are, frankly, at risk of producing a generation of neurasthenic adults, barely able to get off their couches, let alone turn Boston into the world-class city it deserves to be. Read more.
Oh, my, we haven't had a good local media slapfight recently. But Globe Editor Brian McGrory today broke out one of his finer white linen gloves and slowly, dramatically slapped it across the face of CommonWealth Executive Editor Michael Jonas, who had the temerity to criticize Shirley Leung's repeated exhortations to Bostonians to stop acting like a bunch of goddamned cry-baby 2-year-olds, buck up and support those Olympics and be snappy about it.
Jim Romensko posts a copy of McGrory's outraged missive to the publisher and editor of CommonWealth about how Jonas wouldn't recognize an open mind like Leung's - why, she's criticized John Fish, well, that one time, anyway! - if it bit him in the ass, probably because he and CommonWealth are sexist pigs who resent a keen intellect like Leung's, which eagerly challenges the conventional wisdom and is so much keener than Jonas's that Jonas should just move to Texas or something.
Here's hoping Jon Keller posts a copy of the acid-dipped riposte McGrory no doubt sent him as well for his Leung missive.
