News values

Tuesday: MADELEINE
Wednesday: DIANA DEATH: NEW WITNESS
Thursday: NEW CANCER SUPERFOODS
Friday: MADELEINE
Saturday: WE DID SEE MADELEINE
Sunday: MADELEINE: POLICE DIG FOR BODY
Monday: MADELEINE


I hope the single word headline doesn't represent a trend. We only need banners saying "DIANA" "TAXES" "HOUSES" and "WEATHER" and all possible news stories are covered, and all the sub-editors are out of business.

Eh, we need to have a little more than that -- instead of just WEATHER, we need to know which named storm we're dealing with. (Although if we've been listening to the radio or checking the internet, we'd know all about that already, just a question of where in the 3-day cone the dang thing will be in 3 days.)
