Dear Dr. Bones,
Naturally, the _Globe_ of Gotham lost this keyboard’s custom when it gated their community recently. Anybooby can see that that is the way we are headed, yet there is no need to rush unseemly into the Brave New Decline.
Anyway, an out-of-commonwealth perspective remains available gratis from the Whight Guard volks over to here . That crew manage to make the Baní Sulzberger look like locals most of the times, so profound is their internal emigration, but that doesn’t matter, I suppose, when the guardists are only reprintin’ stuff fetched from Manhattan. As follows:
|According to the _Boston Globe_, the Deval Patrick administration inadvertently erased thousands of Romney Administration emails.|
"That includes at least four of Romney’s top Cabinet officials. Thirty days after they left office, their e-mails were automatically purged from the state’s central computers, wiping out records of decisions on an array of sensitive topics, from health care to raising state revenues. Romney Cabinet secretaries said in interviews that they were never told by administration or state technology officials that they needed to take any steps to protect their e-mails. "No one came over to me and said, ’Do this, do this, do this, do this,’’’ said Tim Murphy, who as secretary of Health and Human Services helped formulate the state’s landmark health care law. "I just turned my computer off and went home. That’s the end of it.’’
There goes that line of attack by the Democrats. For it was they who did the erasing.
Neocomrade R. X. Eno, Freelord Redmass in the peerage of Foxcuckooland, is author of the twistatorial frame here. His freelordship has evidently not much acquaintance with Comp. Sci., for of course if "automatically purged" be accurate, the true perps must be the installers and configurators of the programme, who, in the case at hand, must be the agents of Republicanines if not themselves Party neocomrades.
His freelordship elegantly, an’ quight unanswerably, says not a word about those amazin’ hard disk drives that automatically bought and disconnected themselves, and then rode off into the sunset with ‘Mittens’. Freelord Redmass must know about them, for the very same _Globe_ scribble  informs us that
|[A]ides in Romney’s executive office also took the unusual step of buying individual desktop computer hard drives and taking them home, removing a large volume of material relating to Romney’s deliberations. That was not done by executive office aides for Swift and Cellucci (...) Reuters  news agency reported this week that breaking an office computer lease by using the individual hard drives cost state taxpayers $100,000 . . . .|
Especially worth hushin' up, from the Whight Guard perspective, is that second bit, which reflects rather poorly, I venture to think, on ‘Mittens’ as exponent of Big Management an' heroic Cutter of Costs. Plus there may be a Rulalaw angle, sorta.  Though I guess it is not technically illegal to break leases as long as you buy up the fragments afterwards. _Dixit_ Powell, Esq.
The _Gotham Globe_ goes on about it at remarkable length, "Number of Words: 2218 / Number of Unwrapped lines: 148 / Number of characters (non-space): 11552." All worth wading through, if only to meet the deliciously surnamed Brian McNiff at about word 1,425.
 One can sneak into The Fishwrap on a Hill if some confederate in the beleaguered garrison throws one a link from the inside.
(( In some ways, the New Dark Ages promise to be remarkably like the old ones. Complete with treacherous ‘confederates’ like McTrickledown, who am no ideobuddy to Freelord Redmass an’ the Whight Guard.
(( Admittedly, in any age it would be difficult to cite a document for the parts of it that are convenient in the path of one’s Party an’ Her AEIdeology without lettin’ the ill-disposed know where to go to look for less convenient aspects. Aspects to use against. I presume hostiles were supposed to stop when they see there is a link, or maybe when they click and verify that there is another end to it that looks tolerably plausible .
(( As Mr. Burke said to Lord Bowlingalone, "¿Who now reads _Globe_ articles? ¿Who ever read them thru?" ))
 ¿Reuters? Ah, so. ¡Why this is _Globalisierung_, nor are we out of it, we who now get our Beacon Hill news not merely from NY but from UK!
