The Globe today posted a fun profile of the South Street Diner. So it pains us a bit here at the nitpick desk to report that the second half of the headline, "I spent the night at South Street Diner, Boston’s only 24/7 sit-down spot," is wrong.

The City that Always Sleeps has two sit-down spots open 24/7 - the other being the IHOP on Soldiers Field Road in Brighton.

We just got e-mail from the Boston Globe that they are raising our price for home delivery of the Sunday paper to $9.50 a week (although with that, we do get access to the online version). What are other Globe subscribers seeing? Put that way because last time the Globe announced print increases, they seemed to have different rates for different people.

An Encino, CA man whose lawyers say he was a depressed, pot-smoking senior citizen who spent his days after his son's suicide watching cable news and screaming at the TV was sentenced to four months in federal prison for calling the Globe's downtown offices 14 times and threatening to rape and kill the BU interns who answered the phones and anybody else he could target with one of the many guns in his collection.

It's ancient history by now, of course, but way back in June, Tomato Can Dan got his knickers in a bunch when an American team ran up the score against an opponent. That's just not fair, and it's so unseemly, he thundered about the US women's soccer team. This morning, Rev. Laura Everett wonders: Read more.
