A friend of mine has pointed out an interesting irony to the Globe's upcoming financial crisis - what could its sale, or radical reduction (or even disappearance) mean for the Herald? Could we be headed toward a situation in which the Herald is the remaining daily, and able to expand its ad revenues and readership? Could the Herald take the place of the Globe in the cultural/publicity hierarchy, at least temporarily? It's an interesting thought . . . or is it a scary thought. . .
