Your basic good news/bad news situation

The extremely good, jubilation-inducing news is for (most of) the families of the trapped West Virginia miners. The somewhat ulcer-inducing news is for me.

12 of the 13 miners were found alive (the other's body was found not too long earlier)... about half an hour ago.

Which was when my front page was supposed to go to proof.

Still waiting on AP to send a new version of the story that's long enough to fill the 35-column-inch hole the previous, still-waiting version occupied... The presses are, in turn, waiting on me...

UPDATE: Cox News Service comes through in the clutch! The page just went back...

UPDATE II: Sports had its own problems. It took three overtimes for Penn State to beat Florida State in the Orange Bowl...
