Brendan Myers suggests that until the Globe subscription problems are fixed, "Marty Walsh oughta start reading it on the radio."
Was going to just post more tweets from people still not getting their paper (including WGBH's Emily Rooney, who lives in that remote area known as the Back Bay). But then aggrieved Globe subscriber Sharon Machlis of Framingham pointed me to this LA Times story from 2014 about another time the Globe's new delivery company, ACI Media Group (now known as ACI Last Mile) of Long Beach, CA, took over delivery for a major metropolitan newspaper:
When thousands of Orange County Register readers didn't get their paper on Sunday, the Register offered an alternative: Come pick it up.
In a Facebook post at 3:36 p.m. Sunday, the paper told peeved readers they could get a free copy at the Register's Santa Ana headquarters - if they arrived by 5 p.m.
Now, the situations are not exactly comparable: The Register had to find a new delivery company in a hurry because its old company (none other than the LA Times) was demanding payment on the $3.5 million the Register owed it, while the Globe has no such dire issues (that we know of) and presumably had more time to plan this out.
John Carroll reports the Globe is now up to 108 Zip codes with "delivery delays."
