Let's take our focus - let's keep our focus on Boston for the last word in business today. That word is: it's on us. It's a story of kindness from one newspaper to another.


Yesterday, the staff of the Chicago Tribune sent salads, sodas and dozens of pizzas to their counterparts at the Boston Globe. They arrived at the paper's newsroom with a note commending the Globe for its tenacious coverage through an exhausting and heartbreaking week.

INSKEEP: You make us all proud to be journalists - that note read - and then continued: we can't buy you lost sleep, so at least let us pick up lunch.

That's the business news on MORNING EDITION from NPR News. I'm Steve Inskeep.

GREENE: And I'm David Greene.
