Dante Ramos, deputy editorial page editor for the Boston Globe.
Boston Globe ” Six months to the day that his life was violently ended by the accused Boston Marathon bombers, about 200 colleagues, allies, and strangers gathered at the crime scene this morning to honor MIT Police Officer Sean Collier with remembrances and a memorial carved of limestone from the university’s Great Dome.”
WBUR “Prosecutors are urging a judge to sentence a Massachusetts chemist to up to seven years in prison if she pleads guilty in a drug-testing lab scandal. Annie Dookhan faces allegations including tampering with evidence, obstruction of justice and perjury for alleging faking test results at a now-closed state lab.”
Boston Magazine “The image of Boston police officer Steve Horgan celebrating David Ortiz’s grand slam as Tigers rightfielder Torii Hunter flips over beside him is one of those images that instantly becomes legend. There was some talk of turning #Horganing into a thing, like #Tebowing and planking before it, wherein people photograph themselves sticking their hands up.”
