New in the Phoenix: Shaughnessy hatred and the Globe's new metro columnists

Here's Number One; here's Number Two.

Also, I'd like to address a part of the Shaughnessy story that's prompted several angry responses this morning. About two-thirds of the way through the piece, I quote a nasty comment that a reader made about Dan Shaughnessy's wife.

The aformentioned emailers think this was completely inappropriate. One termed my inclusion of the quote "vile," "disgraceful" and "unhinged."

Here's what I've said in response: I included the comment to show just how over the top some of Shaughnessy's detractors are. To my mind, the quote reflects poorly on Shaughnessy's angriest critics and makes Shaughnessy himself look more sympathetic.

Thoughts, readers?
