Mass. DPH Ad Strokes Boston Globe, Not Herald

May 15, 2018

From our Late to the Get Well Party desk

The hardreading staff has been remiss in failing to note this half-page ad that the Massachusetts Department of Public Health ran over the weekend in the Boston Sunday Globe.

 

 

The ad – wait for it – did not run in the Boston Herald.

We have no statistical basis for this, but the hardguessing staff can’t believe that Herald readers don’t experience strokes in proportionally equal numbers to Globe readers.

So we’ll be contacting the DPH to ask why the ad did not also run in the thirsty local tabloid.

We will, as always, keep you posted.

Boston Detective Union Heralds Sean Gannon Salute

May 11, 2018

Most of you splendid readers know the story of Yarmouth police Sgt. Sean Gannon, who was killed last month serving an arrest warrant in Marston Mills.

Today’s Boston Herald features an update in which Jordan Frias reports on “detailed information about the moments leading up to the shooting death of Yarmouth K-9 Sgt. Sean Gannon and the surrender of his alleged shooter Thomas Latanowich.” The new details come from Cape and Islands District Attorney Michael O’Keefe’s office.

Several pages before that piece, Herald readers saw this full-page ad.

 

 

Interestingly, the ad did not run in the Boston Globe, which presumably was no less sympathetic to the fallen officer than the Herald was.

Regardless, the hardsearching staff was unable to find any connection between Sgt. Gannon and Roger Berkowitz or George Regan. So we contacted the Boston Police Detectives Benevolent Society for enlightenment. We’re still waiting for an answer but we will, as always, keep you posted.
