The New York Times: the pulse of Boston!

We can't call it a trend yet, since it hasn't happened three times. But for the second straight week, the big soft-news offering in the Sunday Times was Boston-centric. Yesterday, it was a great big treatment of unwise things (some understandable, some not so much) people do when dealing with heart disease. Last week, of course, it was the "Amazing Girls" of Newton North and the struggles they face.

Let's hope this doesn't become a habit. Any number of national-trend stories can be hooked to Boston, and it'll always be easier and cheaper for the Times to do protracted reporting here than in Chicago, LA, etc. But too much of this will make the Times look like the Eastern seaboard's paper of record, not the nation's.
