Seriously, Where’s the Globe’s Wayne Woodlief Obit?

As the hardtsking staff has previously noted, the Boston Globe, for reasons known only to itself, has failed to run an obituary for the Boston Herald’s redoubtable Wayne Woodlief, who died on August 12.

Plug his name into the Globe search engine and you get this.

 

 

That one link leads to a 2011 Globe obit for Wayne’s late wife, Norine G. Johnson. But nothing for him.

Coincidentally, today’s Herald features this item.

Wayne Woodlief memorial service set for September

A memorial service to celebrate the life and memory of former Boston Herald columnist and political reporter Wayne Woodlief will be held Sept. 23 at 11 a.m. at Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge.

A reception will follow at a location to be announced.

Mr. Woodlief died Aug. 12 at the age of 82.

 

Maybe by then the Globe will have done the right thing and run a proper remembrance of a fellow journalist.
