    Huh. I had to go the the boston globe web site to find any comments about this at all.

    Guess it wasn't news, unless you live there.
    • You mean the rioting, or the Sox victory? The latter was major news all over the place. Hell, PBS News Hour even had a whole segment on Sox-Yankees on Monday night: in all my years of watching, I've never seen News Hour do a full segment on a team sporting event, where the discussion was actually about the teams, and not the media or the context in society at large or some horseshit like that. :-)
    • The rioting of course. We were inundated with the sports crap. Nothing on the local news last night either. I did hear this morning that a woman, and she was not called a rioter, but a "young woman who was carried away with excitement, after the victory" had been killed by being shot in the eye with a bean-bag gun.
      • We were inundated with the sports crap.

        I wonder why so many people get pissy when a big sports story makes the news, but almost no one complains when a big entertainment story -- the Oscars of Grammys, for example -- makes the news. It's a hypocrisy I don't understand.
        • I used to complain about both sports stories and entertainment award stories, but then I stopped watching the news (except, of course, for The Daily Show). I don't know if most people would consider that a win, but it's opened up my free time, and I bitch about major media a lot less.

          You are what you think.
