IN THE NEWS:
A LINE FORMED IN CHELSEA
From the Boston Globe: "Stephany Escobar recalled dividing up what little food her family of 10 could afford last month in Chelsea: First the children were fed, then the two men who still had jobs, she said. Those who weren’t working — four had lost their jobs due to the virus — split whatever was left."
