The fact of the matter is, the paper hasn't had a popular, highly readable, entertaining general-assignment columnist since Barnicle was drummed out of the Globe City Room on plagiarism charges...imagine that - denying the people their entertainment because the entertainer seemed to lack integrity and couldn't be trusted with the truth - what's to become of this country?......
