The big to-do that the Boston dailies are trying to trump up over a bunch of useless e-mails erased by the mayor’s assistant Michael Kineavy is truly a tempest in a teapot.
It is a hurricane without winds or rain, a tornado without a swirling funnel cloud, and an earthquake without a tremor — all rolled into one.
If mayoral challengers Michael Flaherty and Sam Yoon believe they will trump the mayor with this so-called e-mailgate, they are very mistaken.
And yet the dailies continue to play up the missing e-mail messages, whose entire message added together is a big nothing.
The mayor has already done his mea culpa for his errant staff member.
Let the reporters scour these e-mails carefully, as they did the last batch.
Not a secret will be found out. Not a underhanded deal to be found.
If all these lost e-mails say nothing whatsoever about anything underhanded or illegal – then will the dailies publish that story?
