The media folks in Boston had one hell of a week.
Covering the marathon bombings and the aftermath became a 24/7 job for many members of the media.
And while there were some mistakes, often the coverage was very good. The Boston Globe was picked out as one of those that stayed on top of the story from start to finish.
The Chicago Tribune was impressed enough with the hard working gang at The Globe that they decided to buy them lunch.
The Tribune sent dozens of pizzas to The Boston Globe newsroom and attached this note:
To the Boston Globe newsroom:
We can only imagine what an exhausting and heartbreaking week it's been for you and your city. But do know your newsroom colleagues here in Chicago and across the country stand in awe of your tenacious coverage. You make us all proud to be journalists.
We can't buy you lost sleep, so at least let us pick up lunch.
Your friends at the Chicago Tribune.
