Newspaper Front of the Year

I nominate today’s Toronto Star front page as the best of the year so far of any newspaper I’ve seen:

And doesn’t Cretien look like the Grinch?

What is it that makes it stand out for you? I find it relatively unnoteworthy, but maybe I’m missing your point? Are you talking design or content or both? The big headline is pretty typical of the kind of faux-outrage rhetoric coming out of Martin these days (just digging himself deeper and deeper… he can’t shut up). Chretien looks like a mob boss.

The page says “Martin: No Hiding Place” and then shows Chretien hiding in a car.

Whoosh!(sound of the obvious going over my head)
Actually, I didn’t catch on because the full headline on the Star’s website reads “Martin: No Hiding Place for Ministers”. And my first impression of the picture was of Chretien preparing to exit his car in grand untouchable, defiant fashion rather than hiding (not his style).
