No respect

Today is the first day of the rest of my life with Globe West. If I were Thomas Hobbes, I would suggest it will be short, brutish and nasty.

There on Page One -- tucked into a corner with stories about Acton, Southboro, Newton Concord and Arlington is a little note to readers that declares: "Starting today, Globe West welcomes readers from 16 cities and towns that had been served by GlobeNorthWest."

No mention at all of Brookline, served by the late and (by me anyway) unlamented City Weekly.

How about a fig leaf of recognition guys?

Oh sure, there was a Page One story with a Brookline dateline about the Booksmith, an independent store that stared down and beat Barnes & Noble. Will there be a regular Page One story from Brookline -- talking about tax rates and service cuts too?

Was it any better for the folks who were shifted from City to North?
