Boston Globe to Stop Revolving?

This via the Washington Post: The Boston Globe will likely cease to exist — and sooner rather than later. Which reminds me of my ruminations/fretting a few weeks back about what would happen to a newspaper’s electronic site, and especially its digital archive. (I’ve relied extensively on the Globe’s digital archive in my research for my new book about meat.) (Gustavus Swift started his career as a cattle trader in Massachusetts and he launched his “dressed beef” empire in New England.)

Tip o’ the e-mug to Rebecca Skloot at Twitter (@rebeccaskloot). (Notice how my Twitter reference rolls right out of my keyboard. Ah, how quickly things change . . . .)
