Tell me it ain’t so!

From today’s Herald:

Boston Globe sportswriters Jackie MacMullan and Peter May and real estate reporter Thomas Palmer are among the 23 newsroom workers who are leaving the paper as part of a voluntary buyout offer.

The other 23 departing employees include a press room foreman and people who work in the paper’s finance and advertising departments, Boston Globe Executive Vice President Alan Larkin said yesterday.

The paper has not officially named all 46 departing employees.

This is a crushing loss! Forget about Bailey, he was no good. But, losing Thomas J Palmer, Jr., will leave a big hole in the Boston newspaper world. He was a constant source for information on Boston business and real estate. (Names I also recognized on the way out were Royal Ford and Peter Howe. Shame, that.)

Good luck, Tom. Will we see you on the links with Bob, Joyce, and the rest of the dearly-departed?

I’m sure the Herald’s staff had a good laugh at the Globe’s expense, this morning.
