Good stuff from the Sunday Globe
A three-part Globe Spotlight Team series exposes the inequities that follow people to their very last breaths.
It is a deep examination into the uncomfortable topic of death, and confronts Massachusetts' failure to protect its most vulnerable in the early days of a historic pandemic.
