Columbia Gas, which oversaw the destruction of roughly 80 homes; the death of Leonel Rondon, a student at Phoenix Charter Academy; over two dozen injuries; and the disruption of thousands of other lives, promises to restore service to Lawrence, Andover, and North Andover by November 19th.
But . . .
The company is also hedging its bets, as yesterday’s full-page Boston Globe ad from Columbia Gasbag Joe Hamrock indicates.
Nuts to deadlines graf.
Notice first that Columbia Gas is outsourcing part of its responsibility for the recovery to “local, state and federal officials and other dedicated people and organizations.”
Also notice that there’s no mention of the November 19th deadline.
Also also notice that the ad did not run in the Boston Herald, yet another example of Boston institutions overlooking the thirsty local tabloid.
No wonder we’re destined to be a One-Daily Town.
P.S. It’s entirely coincidental that this is the front page of today’s Herald
and this is Metro Page One of the Globe.
