Day After Being Next To The Obits, Pawlenty Makes Page One In St. Paul

Stories end up in certain spots on newspapers' pages for all sorts of reasons — how important they are; what time they break; how long they need to be.

St. Paul's Pioneer Press had a rather unfortunate juxtaposition Monday when it put its "advance" story on former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty's announcement of his bid for the GOP presidential nomination next to its obituaries.

Today's editions have Pawlenty, who officially launched his bid on Monday, on the front page.
