Tomato cans

It just wouldn't be a Shaughnessy column without them.

Shaughnessy sure does love him some tomato cans. He mentions them every chance he can, like in his no doubt intensively researched, carefully crafted column today: Read more.

The Globe reports unknown hackers have unleashed large-scale "distributed denial of service" attacks against it that have taken down bostonglobe.com and its phone and content-management systems for parts of today and yesterday.

In DDOS attacks, hackers unleash armies of malware-infested personal computers to throw vast amounts of data at a particular target, taking it down until the site or its Internet provider figures out how to filter out the bad data packets.

When the Globe packed up its Morrissey Boulevard printing presses and moved everything to a new plant in Taunton, that included the Herald - which the Globe prints under contract.

And with the Globe continuing to apologize to its print readers for production problems, the Herald has been forced to chime in, via a pretty harsh note in today's paper. Read more.

Boston 2024 Olympics Video: Anthem

When did Shirley Leung get on the Globe editorial board?

I was all set to complain about Dan Shaughnessy returning to his stupid "tomato can" fixation in his piece yesterday about just how badly the Celtics did (sorry, Dan, the German for "tomato can" is not "tomato can"), but, no, if I'm going to get all ranty about a Globe columnist today, I'm going to get ired up about Mike Ross, because, unlike Shaughnessy, Ross really should know better.
