Article in the Herald about the new "Misery Index" report for Boston (hint: it's not good), along with interestingly placed / themed advertisement.
ETA - and on THAT note, the Sox drop two of three to the stupid BJs. Thanks a pantload, guys. No joy today, I guess.
P.S. Speaking of opiates (or opiate-like, insidiously addictive radio formats), I'm already on record as saying Boston needs another sports talk radio station like a fish needs a freakin' bicycle. Breaking into a market beyond dominated by WEEI is a tall order. But if the new WBZ that's replacing WBCN thinks it's going to survive against the 800-lb gorilla by hiring away some of its employees and becoming 'EEI Part Deux, I think even Red's six-month forecast is a little generous. Their only hope is to give those of us who kicked the 'EEI habit years ago a more intelligent, less shrill alternative - so far it doesn't appear they're going in that direction.
Great to know that's the reason there's going to be less music on our airwaves, eh?
