The Boston Herald earns Headline o’ the Day honors for this:
Strip club vows to keep guns out
The same Herald piece is also in the running for Empty Quote o’ the Day:
“Public safety is the highest priority of this establishment,” said Glass Slipper attorney Kenneth Tatarian . . .
The Boston Globe, on the other hand, gets the nod for better - actually only – graphic (since the Herald doesn’t have any):
There are other compare-and-contrast goodies as well.
Globe on the dispute that triggered the shooting:
Two patrons at The Glass Slipper strip club in downtown Boston were shot in the head by another patron during an apparent fight about a booth early Wednesday, authorities said.
Herald on same:
The Glass Slipper erupted in violence at 2:13 a.m. when a fight broke out between patrons over who had dibs to a viewing booth, authorities said.
Oh – a viewing booth. That explains a lot.
Globe on apprehending the shooter:
The alleged gunman — Steve A. Gayle, 34, owner of a video gaming company in Jamaica Plain — was arrested by Boston police moments after the shooting, which occurred inside the club at 22 LaGrange St.
Gayle was apprehended outside, holding a silver-colored handgun and carrying a backpack with 16 rounds of ammunition, authorities said.
Herald on same:
Steve A. Gayle, 34, of Jamaica Plain was arrested as he scurried from the club, brandishing a silver revolver and backpack with 16 bullets, right past a Boston cop on a detail at the neighboring strip club, Centerfolds, according to court records.
Scurried? Seriously? These papers really do inhabit entirely separate universes.
