Globe's Pictures From First 100

The Globe's has a slideshow of Governor Deval Patrick's first 100 days up on their website. It's some photos that have made the paper before, but there are some there I haven't seen, from events that I didn't even know about. I think my favorite is this one of two reporters trying to eavesdrop through a door labeled "Private Meeting -- No Press beyond this point". I won't go so far as to say that it's emblematic of the governor's relationship to the press thus far, but I did get a kick out of it anyway.

I did notice, however, that Governor Patrick is not wearing his seatbelt in one of the pictures. Given recent events that have shown that governors are not immune to the laws of physics, I hope that this is not something that Patrick makes a habit of.
