Well the hardlyreading staff once again got no Boston Globe delivered to our unhappy home today. Here’s the latest lame excuse posted on the hately local broadsheet’s website:
Once again the paper lists 90 locales where there are “delivery delays” – that means “no paper” in Globespeak. Except it should be 91, since once again Brookline is left out (in more ways than one).
To make matters even worse, we got this email a couple of hours ago:
- Why has the Boston Herald still not covered this story? (And, yes, we did get our copy of the fraidy local tabloid today.)
- The Globe is offering “full refunds to those subscribers who do not receive newspapers.” But what about Globe advertisers? Are they getting refunds too?
Seems only fair, eh?
