I couldn't believe it when I picked up my paper and saw that the firing of Butch Davis was the top story on the Thursday front page. This is the most important bit of news you have for your readers? Isn't that what is supposed to go there - important stories that have an impact on your audience? There are so many more important things going on in the state, the country and the world than that story.
Are you just trying to distract your readers from the debt ceiling debates or state redistricting (which has a very small space at the bottom of the page) or the many other news stories you could have put there? Or do you think that we need something more sensational on the front page? I think the Butch Davis story should have gone in the Sports section, not the front page.
