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).

Two questions:

  1. Why has the Boston Herald still not covered this story? (And, yes, we did get our copy of the fraidy local tabloid today.)
  2. 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?
