Very cool!

I don't see what good this is if you can't read the tiny print. Interesting idea, but worthless.

Pretty kool idea! I looked around and found it interesting how different papers in different regions of the country report the same events reflecting their biases. Nice find!

Sorry, I didn't mention that you double click on the dot to view a larger version of the page.

DOH! I should have noticed that. Thanks. I need more coffee :)

I have to admit, I also wondered why the size of the little newspapers was unreadable, so it wasn't just Terry. Very cool design, obviously driven by well engineered software. Thanks!

I like it! Works well and, besides being just plain interesting, may come in handy. I'll let you know if I figure a way to use it constructively.

Try the TOP 10 front pages to see which are noted for the most salient news headline. Today:

"The President signed the economic stimulus bill as expected, but it was General Motors and Chrysler 'standing first in line for additional government funding' that topped the news agenda for many U.S. dailies. First prize goes to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette for coming closest to the Oliver Twist request, 'Please, sir, I want some more,' on behalf of the nation’s carmakers."

Kind of fun seeing what newspapers in different cities and parts of the country think should be on their front pages. The differences are noticeable.
