Celtics co-owner drops bid to buy Globe, running for Kennedy seat

This has got to be the kind of agonizing career choice that only comes along once in every lifetime.

Stephen Pagliuca and Jack Connors - co-owners of the Boston Celtics - have abandoned their effort to buy the Boston Globe.

Instead, Pagliuca is set to announce that he is running for Ted Kennedy's Senate seat in Massachusetts.

I just wish I had that kind of career conflict.

Will I run for the Senate and have a say in running the country?

Or will I buy the Globe and have a say in how the country is won?

Politics or journalism?

A seat in the Senate or ownership of one of the world's best newspapers.

Hmm.

I'd go for the Globe. Nothing's more fun than journalism.
