Globe a Lively Postscript to the Herald

The hardreading staff has often referred to the Boston Herald as a lively index to the Boston Globe.

But things got turned around yesterday when the feisty local tabloid went Page One with outgoing mayor Tom Menino’s decision to skip the inauguration of his successor, Marty Walsh.

Went Page One gleefully, we might add – and exclusively in the local dailies’ bakeoff.

Today the Boston Globe has the story Page One Metro, and the stately local broadsheet gives credit to the Herald high up in the piece.

Menino won’t see Walsh sworn in

Mayor breaks with tradition of going to successor’s event

Breaking with the city’s historical precedent, outgoing Mayor Thomas M. Menino will be one of just a handful of Boston mayors in the past century who did not attend their successors’ swearing-in ceremonies.

Menino told reporters on Friday that he will not formally participate in the Jan. 6 inauguration of Mayor-elect Martin J. Walsh.

“No,” Menino said, when asked by a Boston Herald reporter if he would be involved in the swearing in. “It’s Marty Walsh’s day. It’s not Tom Menino’s day.”

 

But today is the firsty local tabloid’s day, isn’t it?
