Headlines in Anchorage

From today’s front page (online version) of the Anchorage Daily News:

1) “Legislators lock horns over Palin inquiry” (Highlight: Hmmm. The headline?)

2) “Palin blessed three years ago to be free from ‘witchcraft’’” (Highlight: The pastor, before so blessing Palin, preached that “We need God taking over the media.”)

3) “Botanical garden closes after bear kills moose near fence” (Highlight: The lede. “A bear feasting on a moose carcass along the perimeter fence of Alaska Botanical Garden Tuesday morning has prompted officials to close the facility. The garden will be closed to public use until Oct. 10 to give the bear time to finish its carcass and move along.”)
