Weird Things I Learned This Week

Tom Oliphant had a brain aneuryism in 2005 and took voluntary retirement from the Globe. I'm still PO'd about his "solidarity" comment, though.

Boston Herald columnist Howie Carr once sued Don Imus. Imus said horrible things about Carr's wife on the air because Mike Barnicle told Imus that Carr said Imus would die before his kid graduated from high school. Carr hired Alan Dershowitz and sued: "[].... under the terms of the settlement, I’m not allowed to reveal what happened.... [] And now she owns a condo in Florida. Is this a great country or what?"
