"The best edited section, Business, receives the fewest pages and reporter resources. This latter factor speaks to a central Globe failing: instead of focusing attention and talent on the Boston area's dynamic business community and the many stories there, the Globe revels in depicting Boston as being a playground for petty political hacks who would be an embarrassment anywhere else -- oh, yeah, that and being the home/birthplace of Ben Affleck."I agree. While Boston actually is all three of the things you describe, the Globe editors are far too obsessed with the last two.
Speaking of politicians who would be "an embarrassment anywhere else", such is epitomized by the recorded greeting from the Mayor which is played for anyone going to or from the Logan Airport parking garage. It is incredibly poorly articulated, and sounds exactly like the Mayor always sounds.
As for SillyGlobe, thanks for a job well done. Terry, live long and prosper.
