Globe: City to post recovered emails online

Public records enthusiasts, rejoice? By next week we'll be able to see online the 5,018 emails that a top Menino aide deleted (and then deleted again), the Globe reports. Putting things online instead of printing it out on reams and reams of paper -- how novel (though not as impressive for the television cameras). Regardless, this is good news for those of us who did not feel like waiting in line to view the emails and instead just grabbed the 200-page inventory that was made available. Now we'll be able to see city employees' bad grammar (or is it "grammer"?) and (we hope) more embarrassing incidents in all their entertaining glory. Also, check out this Allston-Brighton Community Blog, which apparently will be posting the documents from a public records request to the Boston Redevelopment Authority. (Via Universal Hub.)
