--First, I've got a new Phoenix piece looking at the Times Co.'s plans for the Globe and why the Guild caved on lifetime-job guarantees earlier this week.

Over at CommonWealth Unbound--which, I confess, I still don't read as often as I should--Michael Jonas revisits the way Sam Yoon's recent budget hearing in Dorchester played out in the press, and argues that the coverage portends poorly for this year's mayoral race. Unfortunately, Jonas makes a pretty good case. [Via Universal Hub]
