In a welcome act of kindness by fellow journalists, the Chicago Tribune newspaper today brought lunch for the Boston Globe staff, sending dozens of pies from Pizzeria Regina into the Globe’s Dorchester newsroom.
In a note accompanying, the pizza, the Tribune explained its actions.
“We can only imagine what an exhausting and heartbreaking week it’s been for you and your city. But do know your newsroom colleagues here in Chicago and across the country stand in awe of your tenacious coverage. You make us all proud as journalists.”
The Globe newsroom has been working long hours to cover the Boston Marathon bombing attacks and the aftermath.
The Tribune’s note added, “We can’t buy you lost sleep, so at least let us pick up lunch.’’
The note was signed, “Your friends at the Chicago Tribune.’’John R. Ellement can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow him on Twitter @JREbosglobe.
