Kim Atkins has posted excerpts of the Herald Editorial Board’s meetings with Deval Patrick and Tom Reilly. While the paper ran Kim’s article about the meetings today, these blog entries are perfect examples of why such blogs are excellent. They give news outlets opportunities to share things that would otherwise never see the light of day.
While I will register a standard complaint that there’s not enough substantive political coverage in the news today, I commend the Herald and Kim for posting these additional nuggets.

Here’s an article from today’s Herald about the meetings.
Questions for Kim (who I KNOW reads BMG):
1. Has Gabrieli met with the Ed board yet? I presume not…
2. Have any other statewide candidates met with the Ed Board yet? Will you be posting summaries and excerpts of their comments as well?
I hope the bloggers/reporters at the Globe will consider doing the same.
