The Week That Was
Chronicling the past week via quick links and pithy commentary (So sad to say goodbye edition)
Steve Bailey leaves the Globe: And makes us sad. Almost as sad as losing Fudgie the Whale to Connecticut.
NECN names a new news director: We’re available for News Night.
We adopted a marathoner: You can’t have her, Madonna.
We get schooled by Tom Hanks: The movie star drops some tax code knowledge on us at the Boston premiere of John Adams.
Trust us. We’re experts: We give some hints to the area’s blogging mayors.
We’re his best cyber-stalkers: Mitt Romney changes his website and gets our hopes up.
Parting is such sweet sorrow: Mr. Gobbles moves to Dedham.
Bailey isn’t the only one leaving the Globe: Sidekick might be taking a buyout too.
NECN scores big: Alison King gets House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to rouse Democrats from their Dream Ticket.
Next time you see Mayor Menino, buy him a beer: He’s the 109th highest-paid city employee.
Rick Pitino runs on Dunkin’: Seventeen of them, to be exact.
We met Joey McIntyre! And had a blast at a special screening of On Broadway.
McCain/Romney ’08? Probably not.
First Mr. Gobbles, now Doug Mirabelli: The Red Sox release Tim Wakefield’s personal catcher.
Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it: America’s other big cities are terrified of the Big Dig.
Mitt Romney doesn’t need John McCain: He’s going to start his own political action committee. So there!
Hey, Alan Dershowitz: You’re not helping.
And on this week’s episodes of Sal and Deval:
Deval experiences the rare thrill of victory. Sal makes like Keifer Sutherland and heads straight for the jugular. Then the children got dragged into it. But this is just a precursor to the all-out brawl we expect at next week’s casino hearings.
That’s all for us this week. If you need us we’ll be luxuriating on the sandy shores of Fort Myers, Florida.
