Today's Washington Post features a tough, emotional Memorial Day story on the front, above the fold. The article, introduced with a wonderfully poignant photograph by Andrea Bruce Woodall, is from the Metro section, however; the lead photo for A1 serving as a key to a different section's main story.
A great design concept is at work here; namely leading the paper with the best photograph, regardless of where the story ultimately resides, and letting that provide the entrance point to the rest of the content. Wow!
Not a sermon, just a thought.
