From our Late to the Late Mario Cuomo desk
Mario Cuomo spoke in poetry, but lived in prose.
Exhibit A: His Hamlet on the Hudson forever fluttering.
Maybe that’s why the local dailies didn’t bother to compose their own obituaries of the former New York governor, but cherry-picked them from other news outlets.
The Boston Globe, on the one hand, plunked the New York Times obit on its front page.
The Boston Herald, on the other hand, plucked the Associated Press.
Hey – that’s show biz.
(To be fair, today’s Globe has this laudatory editorial and this less-so column by Michael A. Cohen. The Herald has this farewell from Ray Flynn.)
