BEST HEADLINE THAT STATES THE OBVIOUS: Tampa Tribune’s Chamberlain prom coverage

Ahh, so many good choices here. I mean, after all, we’ve got a whole year of the Tampa Tribune and St. Pete Times to choose from, not to mention stuff we see online and in national papers like the New York Times. But the winner is the Trib, with its “no-duh” masterpiece that topped a story by Julie Pace about dozens of Chamberlain High School students who got into trouble on prom night by showing up drunk. The headline: “Students’ Prom Preparations Might Have Included Alcohol.”
