This is why nobody reads newspapers anymore

BUFFALO - Rain from a violent storm leaked through a glass atrium at the Hyatt Regency Hotel yesterday as a couple of dozen supremely unheralded politicians - lieutenant governors from across America - gathered in a windowless ballroom.
Lieutenant Governor Brian K. Krolicki of Nevada looked across a table filled with cold cuts and potato chips and asked Lieutenant Governor Barbara Lawton of Wisconsin, the incoming chairwoman of the group, "Do you get to wear a crown?"
Lawton laughed, until she noticed one of the very few reporters covering the conference of the National Lieutenant Governors Association standing nearby.
This is why nobody reads newspapers anymore.
Can't the Boston Globe find anything more interesting and newsworthy for its reporters to cover?
