Blackout, part III: The local paper wises up

On the heals of my diatribe against local media organizations which either ignored the widespread power outages, or took NStar's word on the extent of the problem, I am happy to report that at least one of them -- the News Tribune -- got its act together by midweek.

This article, Cedarwood neighborhood left in the dark, still repeated the NStar PR mantra about 'how well power supply infrastructure held up", but also countered that with the experience of ordinary people in Cedarwood, and got some numbers, too: 350 households affected (Cedarwood only, nothing about Borderline's own neighborhood, or others in Waltham). It's a suspiciously round number, but at least readers can see that the extent of the outage was hardly minor.
