The last print copy of The Boston Globe will be delivered to my house.

There are a host of people who still say "did you see waht was in the Globe today?"

@Henry: I might have suspected that your trip "home" had some hidden reason (besides seeing your mom...

This really did come as a great surprise -- the idea didn't strike her until the Thursday, so it wasn't till the Friday that I talked to Martin -- I flew back that Sunday and the article came out the following week.

"Ticker tape is soooo 20th century" Kind of like holing up a lit match at the end of a concert. Now we use our phones.
