Michelle My Belle

While perusing the usual pile of dailies today, I noticed a kind of harmonic convergence of news judgment. First, check out this photo in the lower right hand corner of today's Boston Globe front page. Then this shot in the lower left hand corner of page 1 in the Boston Herald. And now, perhaps most surprising of all, how about this lead photo on the front page of the New York Times.  (click to enlarge.) I mean 16-year-old Michelle Wie's unsuccessful bid to qualify for the U.S. Open could be considered high drama in a sport that rarely makes page 1. But doesn't the front page placement have something to do with Ms. Wie's -- shall we say -- visceral appeal. Wonder if any female editors were making the page 1 calls?
