Sports and sports and weather

Today's front page has to be the worst in recent memory. There's only one actual story, and it's about the weather, at the bottom of the page. Most of the front page is devoted to Opening Day, and there's nothing but blurbs -- no stories, only hints of news and refers to stories elsewhere in the paper. Among those who cared, who in Cincinnati didn't know by 6 p.m. that it was a beautiful day and that the Reds won? Across the top of the front page is more sports, refers to basketball news.

The front page has become a big index for the rest of the paper, and not a very good one at that because the paper is so small and because the Enquirer refuses to take hard news seriously. This is really depressing.
