Great front pages still sell newspapers. The Times-Picayune issue celebrating the New Orleans Saints’ Super Bowl victory with its 5-inch-tall “AMEN!” headline is expected to be the best-selling in the paper's 173-year history.
The Times-Picayune told readers today on its website: "We have been printing through the night and are continuing to print copies now to meet your demand. We appreciate your loyalty and patience on this great and exciting day for New Orleans and the Gulf Coast region."
