Sure, I could send e-mail to Globe Direct about how their circulars keep winding up on our porch (this morning, lovingly placed underneath some pruning shears on our porch - wouldn't want it to blow away, eh?), but I've taken a fancy to calling 888-MY-GLOBE because at least that way I get to cost them some money for the privilege of ignoring all my previous e-mails and phone calls about how I don't want their circulars.

Yeah, there is the annoying fact you'll be put on hold for a couple minutes, but, hey, that's why God invented cell phones that turn into speaker phones when you flip them over.

The Globe has taken down the online version of a travel story from last weekend about how Cleveland rocks and replaced it with this statement:

A recent travel story about Cleveland, Ohio, has been removed because the reporting practices did not meet Globe standards.

The article (attached below, thanks to a roving UHub Globe reader) extols Cleveland attractions the traveler should not miss and alerts us that locals call Cleveland "the Cle."

David Ortiz writes a long piece about the PED accusations and how they haunt him to this day. And, of course, the Globe's own Shank is right in the middle of it all:

In 2013, I came off the DL and started hot. My first 20 games I was hitting like .400. And the reporter with the red jheri curl from The Boston Globe comes into the locker room says, "You're from the Dominican. You're older. You fit the profile of a steroid user. Don’t you think you’re a prime suspect?"

A staffer at one of Boston's finer TV newsrooms has started chronicling the phone calls they get.

Caller: Is it true that someone can live in your house w/o you even knowing?…and the body can turn into something else? Me: I have to go.

Ed. note: As a recovering ink-stained wretch, I can vouch that newspaper newsrooms get the same kind of calls.
