    I admit to doing the top stories thing each year. But the Gannett paper in my neck of the woods took it to the extreme this year, having top five stories in a number of categories, run over the course of seven days. Top five animals stories, good government, bad government, people we'll miss, etc. I think it ended up being something like 20 different categories.
    To me, that seems like going overboard.
    Also, is this a Gannett trend or just an individual newspaper decision?

    There is no type of story that gives Gannett editors bigger boners than ones they can plan for and get done weeks ahead of time (while they enjoy a break during the holidays).

    So who finished sixth in "People we'll miss?"

    I don't think that form of arousal is limited to Gannett.
