Poynter has an interesting journo take on yesterday’s verdict.

Here are 10 front pages from around the country that led with the Boston Marathon guilty verdict.

It is pretty interesting to look at, or i would post it for you all to see.

But I do want to say one quick thing. It is completely my own opinion, but if you are not a national newsgroup, like USAToday (otherwise known as McNews) or a news group out of Massachussets, this case should not be the main package on your front page.

You should cover it and find a unique way to do so because this is important to the entire country, but first and foremost cover your readers and your community. They should get the majority of your attention, not this verdict.
