And Now For More Boston Globe Bashing - LV

It looks like we won't have future UMass-Boston dorms 135 Morrissey Boulevard to kick around anymore.
These are the final hours of the Boston Globe building’s 59-year-old life as a printing plant and news operation. The last of billions of newspapers have rolled off the four-story-high presses. Green trucks weighed down by broadsheets no longer wheel onto Morrissey Boulevard from the loading dock. After midnight Thursday, nocturnal folks of the city room and sports desk will turn out the lights for good.

Here in the summer of 2017, the Globe is printed in Taunton, and its executive and editorial offices are moving to a gleaming new downtown space on the second and third floors of 53 State Street.

Not me. I plan to occupy my grimy, windowless office round the clock — like those South Shore church parishioners — until the wrecking ball arrives. I am not an agent of change and find it unbearable to leave a sacred space where so many things happened.
So sad -he hasn't even arrived at the acceptance phase yet...

Darn, did he mention the time in 1975 when Whitey Bulger fired into the press window during the disastrous busing program?
