This is all true, except that the Post -- which I remember well -- 
was a morning paper. 

Oh.  Heh, I guess that blows that theory.  My newspaper reading didn't start until all those evening papers, and the Post, had disappeared, although I do remember the Evening Globe for a few years.  I think I have the Boston Post confused with the Worcester Evening Post, which I never read either, but whose masthead survived in small type on the front page of the Evening Gazette for many years after its death.
