Hot Off the Press: The Jackson Sun

This is today’s Jackson Sun in Jackson, Tenn.; click on the image for a bigger view. If a photo is worth 1,000 words, the paper’s hyper-visual Front Page about a series of tornadoes that raked Tennessee and four other southern states is worth one million.

Online, the Sun reports a twister devastated Union University‘s Jackson campus, five years after a similar disaster. “I braced myself to see damage similar to what I saw in November 2002, but what I saw instead was far greater,” school President David Dockery told the paper. “Forty percent of the dorms have been devastated, and three academic buildings have received major damage.”
