From our Don’t Know What to Make of This desk
This is a headscratcher: Carbon-copy photos in the Boston Globe and the Boston Herald, attributed to different photographers.
From the Herald’s Inside Track:
Matt Damon may be a Harvard man, but when he heard Mark Wahlberg’s reaction to the Boston Marathon attacks, he thought it summed up pretty well what everyone from Boston was thinking.
“Being from Boston, that day is sacrosanct,” the Oscar winner said yesterday. “We’re all out of school … My brother, for the first time in 10 years he wasn’t standing at the finish line with my two nephews. Half the time, he ran it. It’s a very life-affirming day. And I’m sorry to say, but I saw a quote Mark Wahlberg had … and you know, being from this community, that’s the perfect description of what we felt.” Photo credit: Ted Fitzgerald.
From the Boston Globe’s Names column:
We’re guessing Harvard won’t make a habit of honoring dropouts, but the school made an exception Thursday for Matt Damon.
The actor, who has somehow managed to do all right without ever graduating from the World’s Greatest University — he attended from 1988-1992 — was presented with the 2013 Harvard Arts Medal during a ceremony at Sanders Theater. Photo credit: Bill Brett
Is it just us, or are those photos identical?
