Herald: No College Credit For UMass/Dartmouth

From our Two Different Worlds desk

Another 7-10 split in the local dailies today, this time over the relationship between UMass/Dartmouth and suspected Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

Note that little “our interpretation” caveat.

Not buying it, eh, Shelly? . . .
