That might be one of the last times an editor gets to scream, "Stop the presses!"

"Push an update to the Web site, ASAP" just isn't the same.

The paper copy that I bought this afternoon at Logan Airport had no article. Did the airport not get the latest edition, or did the Herald just totally punt the story?

I think they did the same thing as the Globe: Stopped the presses and replated. I saw "Lion" front pages in a store today.

The one on our doorstoop this morning in 02131 at 6 a.m. had the Kennedy headline. We were kind of surprised they got it out that quickly and actually had a conversation about how they must have stopped the presses. Thanks for finding/posting this link about the process.

There were a couple of pages in our edition that showed signs of where they'd had to replate and start the roll again.
