    New York Post editor Vincent Musetto dies on Tuesday.

    Just from reading the story, about the 1983 murder in question, I was just struck by how different the city was back then:

    That headline will always be memorable, as will the New York Daily News headline from the '70s: "Ford to City: Drop Dead"

    And I can't remember which paper printed it, but it was either the Post or Daily News that ran "Maris Traded to Angels" when Roger Maris passed away after a long battle with cancer.

    There has to be a way to resize images in posts, doesn't there? I could do it in the old format.
