Ode to the Daily News
Last Friday morning I sat down to write a new blog post
I opened up The Boston Globe as it intrigued me the most
What I was going to write about I just could not be sure
So instead I decided to take you on guided tour.

That’s all folks – we made good time – good news, some of it blue
But certainly par for the course when reading the daily news.
