So here’s the delio. I wrote a story this past week which came out today in the Brookline TAB about a push for a skateboard park. Turns out my friend and former colleague back at the TAB, Brock Parker, did exactly the same story for Globe West. I want readers to compare the two and vote on which is better. It’s that simple.
This is a battle of mock-epic proportions between two Gatehouse ex-patriots who have moved on. One, Brock, on to bigger and better things. One, me … well, just plain moved on. But it’s about more than just skateboarding in Brookline. This is personal. Me vs Brock. TAB vs Globe. Short vs. tall. Union vs Confederate. There are all kinds of factors here. Please read the two, compare writing, sources and photos, and decide for yourself which is better.
Small disclaimer: This is all meant in jest. I’m good friends with Brock, and hopefully he is with me, too. Just capitalizing on a bizarre coincidence.
