Morning News Round-Up -- 8.26.09: The Dominant Story of the Day

More details are emerging from Alex Youshock's violent plan at Hillsdale High School in San Mateo...

So do the heroic actions of the staff of the high school to prevent the worst. The Daily Journal's Jon Mays gives the heroes props.

Also, the Chronicle is now realizing there is a story worth covering south of the airport... unfortunately, it is this story and not anything else.

But more amazing than the Chronicle covering the story is the Mercury News' coverage. They are now realizing there is a story worth covering north of Palo Alto... but they aren't really covering it. You see, the Merc is pulling (some/all) of its coverage from the Associated Press. That should tell you something about that newspaper...

And as the details emerge from the Youshock's plan, the District Attorney enters the scene: they may charge Mr. Youshock as an adult.

In other crime news:

Jury selection in the 2006 murder of EPA Police Officer RIchard May begins today. Instructions to the jury include: No Tweeting... seriously.

That's most of the news this morning. Sorry it is all somber.
