The Chicago Tribune sent many boxes of pizza to the newsroom of The Boston Globe today in a move of great journalistic camaraderie in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombing.
A touching note accompanying the delivery reads:
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
“Classy to the core,” the Globe tweeted when the pizzas arrived.
