The Globe reports both it and Boston Magazine found some major ish with its recently released ranking of area high schools.

Boston Magazine gave major weight to SAT scores, even though 26 of the 65 schools wouldn’t disclose them. So those 26 were assigned an average of the scores for schools that did report, thereby placing them safely in the middle of the pack.

Boston magazine has a long article on the public-radio war between WBUR and WGBH that I'm sure is just absolutely fascinating, but which I'm having trouble reading because it's just so full of mistakes, starting with the very first paragraph:

BoMag came up with its annual ranking by asking the people it's declared Most Powerful in the past to say who is the Most Powerful now. In other words, it's a perfect reflection of how America works today; them's who gots get more.

Note to Boston Magazine's online staff: Could you use some of your power and remove "wiki" from the title of that page?

Granted, we don't have a lot of power, but that's a nice Wikipedia entry you got there, be a shame if anything happened to it, know what we mean?
