The Boston Globe's only remaining (alleged) full-time columnist has now been absent for an entire fortnight. The other Globe columnist, Bob Ryan, having announced his retirement five weeks ago, might be expected to coast into retirement. Instead, he has submitted five more columns just in the past week alone than has Our Man Shank.
Did the last two weeks in the baking Florida sun take all the piss out of him? Clearly, Shank is not being paid by the word.
