    From the same folks that brought you the extensive productivity reports:

    We get the minutes sent to us every week from department heads meeting. Here's what the News Department had to report ...

    The best stories at the top of the page? Huh, that just might work.

    That's just crazy enough to work!

    Why didn't any of us think of this?
    There's some thinking outside the box going on here.

    This is just a roundabout way of saying Notre Dame football will no longer go above the fold...

    So where do the smaller, less interesting stories go? Inside? They leave so much unanswered.

    I supposed next, they'll figure out that they can sell space in the paper so businesses can advertise.

    This almost smacks of someone in news restating the obvious for the sake of having something to say in the circle jerk meeting, and the MBA in charge of the minutes accepting it as divine revelation.

    Conversely, maybe the less important stories should go inside --- or at least below the fold...

    The bosses at my office are talking about dividing our paper into categories --- like a sports section, a business section, lifestyle section, etc.
    And they said we might start putting the most important news on the front page instead of randomly slotting it in the inside somewhere.
    I'll let you guys know how it goes.
