Bloggers Rally to Help the Globe

In an effort to help the struggling Boston Globe, bloggers around he city are mounting a joint request for suggestions on how to keep the paper afloat.

President of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and prominent Boston blogger Paul Levy has organized what he calls a "blog rally" to support the Globe.

Levy says dozens of Boston bloggers have agreed to align their messages for one day.

"We're looking for the wisdom of the crowds, the public to make suggestions to help a newspaper that we think if very important to the community life and governmental functions in Massachusetts."

The Globe's parent, The New York Times Company, has threatened to close the Boston paper unless its unions agree to $20 million in concessions.
