A Q&A with the Globe's editorial page editor.
The Boston Globe printed a mock first page from the future on Sunday—one that depicted an America in shambles on April 10, 2017, run by Donald Trump. Speculative fiction is not usually in the Globe’s arsenal, so we asked if everybody at the paper was on board.

EXCERPT OF A COLUMBUS DISPATCH MEMO ABOUT VOTING (OR NOT) IN NEXT WEEK'S PRIMARY:

Clearly, campaigning for or providing financial support for candidates is to be avoided. Some on the staff have asked whether it would be OK to vote for Republican or Democratic candidates. Keep in mind that voting records are public, and if you vote for candidates, you will by virtue of that vote become a member of that party. And for those readers who take the time to look up your record -- and some will -- your work will be viewed through that lens.

(Voting on only the issues in a primary will avoid a connection to either party.)

As the old saying goes, perception is reality, and one purpose of our code is to avoid even the perception of partisanship or conflicts of interest.

Gawker's Nick Denton: "This case went wildly off the rails." http://gawker.com/the-hogan-verdict-1766460791
The decision by a Florida jury to grant $140 million in damages for a story on Gawker.com about a Hulk Hogan sex tape was extraordinary. The number is far larger than even the plaintiff himself had asked for in relief. It’s a huge pay-day for an indiscretion that would have been quickly forgotten, one among many in the professional wrestler’s personal life.

In a business where we swear by free speech and believe we are protected by it, we journalists are in fact always being second guessed, corrected, modified, having to tone down and restate, and in general being “legaled” to avoid the possibilities of a lawsuit by a disgruntled subject. The principle of free speech is stronger when you avoid testing it.

No journalists have scrutinized Donald Trump more — or infuriated him more — than Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter and Studio 360 host Kurt Andersen during their days at Spy magazine.

A friend went here today and used the restroom. There was a McDonald's employee (in uniform) handing out towels and requesting $1 tips. I suspect this isn't authorized by corporate. I'll find out on Monday when I put in a call.
