Different strokes for different folks

I couldn't help but being struck by the different priorities highlighted in today's stories about the impact of the House Ways and Means Committee proposed budget cuts.

The Globe looks at the impact of cutting a rental housing subsidy, zeroing in on a Marblehead woman who may become homeless during her cancer treatment because of the loss of state assistance..

The Herald tells us about a "violent uproar,"a finger-jabbing exchange between a Malden rep and House Speaker Robert DeLeo at a political fund-raiser. The topic -- elimination of funding for the Quinn bill that pays police officers for continuing their education.

Think each paper knows its (dwindling) constituencies?
