A Poignant Page One

It's a rare occurrence these days when the Globe and Herald agree on the lead page 1 story.

But here's today's Globe:
'I still forgive him'

And here's today's Herald:

Family finds forgiveness for con who shot girl

I doubt that either paper began yesterday thinking this would lead the news. But the girl's words made it so.

As a general rule, I tend to think that the most important stories are the ones that affect the most people. But not always.

And no one who's read the story or looked at the photo could argue with today's news judgment.
