John Henry has gotten into a twitter war with Emily Rooney and WGBH. That’s right, the owner of the Boston Globe is tweeting snide remarks about a story Emily posted concerning the paper-boy problem.
Lemme tell you something folks. If I’m one of those smug but deep-down frightened little Globies like McGrory, Cullen or Lehigh I would be nervous about who I wise off to from now on. Use to be these guys were protected by people like the Taylors from Boston or the Sulzbergers from New York. People who could protect their flock as it ran amok creating self-serving narratives to scratch whatever the itch was at the time.
Now John Henry from Nebraska protects them; a needy math wiz who made a lot of money with numbers and then bought himself fame. Anyway, this guy Henry really believes he’s the smartest guy around. Plus he thinks we are all idiots. Hell, only a genius like Henry would go out and hire Larry Tate to run a newspaper.

Ugh, how bad did he have it in high school? Who do you suppose had it worse, him or Tom Werner?
Did you read Henry’s pathetic apology for the delivery debacle? So Red Sox like. So patronizing. So condescending. So above-it-all.
Just like Red Sox propaganda. Look you in the eye and tell you one thing when reaching around and picking your pocket.
Anyway, nothing more entertaining than a super rich guy who thinks his dollars are indicative of his brains and acts accordingly. The Globe is maybe the paper of record but that doesn’t make it credible.
Sorry people but the Somerville yuppies commenting on my anti-Green Line extension post are really making my case. They admit the area is small and served by buses to nearby T stations. But they say the extension will cut down on buses, which is good for the environment.
Wow, I get it now. Instead of me walking to the corner and taking the bus to Leachmere I can help the environment by having Leachmere come to me. Am I a good person or what? I try to be socially and environmentally conscious. This is just another example of who I am.
Other than that I still don’t see what their need is. No one has denied that at the least bus service is in walking distance to every home in Somerville that would benefit from the Green Line extension.
It’s like in 1985 you made plans for an addition to your house. All the things you needed in 1985. Would you spend that money today to build the addition to your home you needed in 1985? Wouldn’t there be better things to spend the money on in 2015 than on that which was a good idea 30 years ago?
I’m sorry, the more the cry that they need this the more I am convinced it is a waste.
Question for Somerville Tom. can you tell us exactly what your public transportation options are right now? How far to a bus stop etc.?
