pizzas in office-Mark PotheirOn Monday, the newspaper staff that had been working overtime in Boston to cover the tragic events of their city found a welcome gift from fellow journalists in a thousand miles away.

The Chicago Tribune staff overwhelmed them with pizzas delivered at noontime along with a nice note:

We can only imagine what an exhausting and heartbreaking week it’s been for you and your city. But do know your newsroom colleagues here in Chicago and across the country stand in awe of your tenacious coverage. You make us all proud as journalists.

We can’t buy you lost sleep, so at least let us pick up lunch.

Your friends at the Chicago Tribune.
