Fan From Near and Far

I have been reading the Globe for about 60 years whether I lived in Boston, Maine, South Florida, Shemya, Alaska, Herzogenaurach, Germany, or my current home, Greenville, SC. Many times the paper was a day or a week old. It didn’t matter. The Globe is the best at covering local, regional, and national news on a daily basis. Sports columnists like Peter Gammons, Bob Ryan, and Dan Shaughnessy are gifts to a literate sports fan. The Spotlight team’s investigative reporting pulled back the curtain on despicable behavior by a powerful, entrenched institution. ( A shoutout to my BLS classmate Steve Kurkjian). Although I have lived away from Boston for more than 50 years, the Globe allows me to be a lifetime Bostonian.

Poorly formatted for iPad Pro

Reading on an iPad Pro is pretty annoying if using a keyboard—which is the typical way to use an iPad Pro. The main page is horrible. Each article has a full screen image and a headline. The headline doesn’t even fit on the screen because the image is so large. Give me an option to hide the image. I’m not looking for a picture book. Stop making me scroll so much to see the headlines.

Check out the NYT app for decent formatting.

Maybe the Globe just doesn’t have enough subscribers to pay someone to format the front page daily. That is fine. At least let me hide the useless pictures. I Just scrolled through and 6 of 7 pictures are just dudes and only one is someone I recognize. Why do I need to see these people. If they didn’t something important, tell me what they did. Just give me the headlines so I can choose what story to look at.

Still great, but...

I love the Boston Globe and have read it every day for 45 years. I still don’t miss a day, even though I don’t live in Boston anymore. My one concern is that it increasingly seems determined to enter the culture wars, more as a participant than as an observer. I am not a habitual critic of the press, and I don’t look for liberal bias under every leaf. But I think the Globe’s news articles do tend to be slanted, and the selection of what to report or omit seems to reflect an agenda at times. In the opinion pages, liberal perspectives outnumber conservative ones by at least 4 to 1. Many columns are preachy and repetitive, more hysterical than thought-provoking. I hope the editorial board will occasionally self-reflect and remember that its more strident members do not hold a monopoly on truth and justice. Still, I love the paper and probably always will.
