    Today's front page- odd choice to put Bush above fold.
  2. Well considering they did an entire special section for the inauguration, it's no surprise.

    No big deal. Bush gets his final AJC sendoff until he croaks.

    Odd. Here's what Newseum is showing on its site:

    A lot of papers had special section including the New York Times. The Front page above fold is always the keeper for big events. Of the papers that I looked at the AJC is the only one without Obama as it's lead.

    The inauguration section folded on top of the A section. In effect, the Bush story was the lead of the second section...as it should be.

    When you see the paper in the stand, you see the Obamas.

    Both Denver papers had special sections at the front, then the normal front pages.

    I agree. The two papers I saw had Obama as the lead on the front AND the special section cover, with the special section more a keepsake with good photos, quotes, etc., and the 1A front the actual news. Bush was inside. Maybe AJC wanted to give Bush the proper respect, but if it was a Texas paper it'd be more understandable.

    The AJC's special section had the story, analysis, pictures, personal stories, and the text from Obama's speech.
