Boston Herald No Longer a Lively Index to the Globe

From our One Town, Two Different Worlds desk

For years the hardreading staff has described the feisty local tabloid as a sort of sprightly daily summary of the Boston Globe.

Exhibit Umpteen: There are three big local stories on the front page of today’s Globe – the region’s big hit from climate change; GOP gubernatorial wannabe Mark Fisher’s alleged shakedown of state party officials in return for his dropping out of the race; and Boston College’s returning its Belfast Project tapes to the interviewees to avoid more mishegoss like last week’s Gerry Adams rumpus.
