From our Compare and Contrast in Clear Idiomatic English desk:
For the Boston Globe, Barack Obama’s trip to Boston on Monday was just fundraising as usual, front page below the fold.
For the Boston Herald, the whole thing was beyond the pale.
(Images via the Newseum’s Today’s Front Pages.)
Just goes to show.
Tuesday’s Globe scooped the Herald on this:
Warren rejects radio debate with Brown
Which means Scott Brown will debate an empty chair tonight on Dan Rea’s WBZ-AM radio show. (The hardlistening staff notes that debating an empty chair on radio is not as effective as debating one on TV.)
But Tuesday’s Herald scooped the Globe on this:
Clapprood eviction to leave weddings, parties in lurch
Good news (of sorts): Former politician and talk show host Marjorie Clapprood and her husband Chris Spinazzola do face closure at the end of this month of their Foxboro restaurant and function hall after 12 years, but according to a Herald update:
Nicholas Panagopoulos, 78, who co-owns with his brother Demetri the Foxboro function hall that Marjorie Clapprood and her husband Chris Spinazzola must leave by the end of the month, has offered “to fully serve all scheduled events and hire back workers,” according to a statement sent to the Herald.
Cold comfort to Marjorie and Chris, no doubt.
