    Might the fact that Steve Morse of the Globe got canned have anything to do with their use of a “correspondent” with dubious results?

    Steve Morse was in the Globe yesterday and reviewed the Rolling Stones last week. Unless I completely missed something, I think you’re confusing him with Jim Sullivan.

    They’re a pop band with great hooks. That’s good enough for me.
