Are we crazy?
I looked at the top of the newspaper I work for today and was almost stunned to see what the fine editors here feel is the top story. A football player got canned, and that's number 1! Granted he is a nice football player, but he nevertheless, still a football player. While underneath plays the fact that the local big town has started giving partner benefits to employees and a bomb explosion in Spain that killed almost 200 which is purported to be the work of Al Qaida. I know there are varying interests in the community and we have to show that in our pages. I think there are very few cases when a sports person should be the top story on A1. And today, he shouldn't have been there.
