Mrs. Blog and I will be on the road until Sunday. As usual, I will try to keep the Blog going if I have a WIFI connection. Should the Blog fall silent, I'll be back Sunday evening.

Our favorite newspaper, the Boston Globe, was purchased by the NY Times corporation for $1.1 billion in 1993. Now they're trying to sell it for $200 million, a thumping $900 million loss.

I can't believe there has been no immediate appeal for a FBS fundraising drive?? Do they think Kraft is going to pay for everything? What are we waiting for? Strike while the iron is hot!!

The article makes it sound like Niland transferred back to Northeastern. Is that true?

Yes, Niland finished his degree at Northeastern. Most colleges have a minimum number of credits necessary to be awarded a degree. There would be no point in him staying at UMass to do 60 credits over again.
