Fire drills and tumors

FRONT PAGE OF THE DAY
Beijing Morning News is the best of a bad bunch. The large headline is: Meeting to introduce urban planning for Olympics.

Other headlines are about 6 way North Korea talks, RMB banking business in Hong Kong, corrupt officials getting fired, Putin dismissing the Russian government, and drug prices.

The image shows a fire drill: there has been a lot of reporting in the last few days about public safety in the aftermath of the Miyun bridge disaster.

WORST FRONT PAGE OF THE DAY
Congratulations to the consistently awful Shanghai Xinmin Evening News. The headline is about a survey of hit and run accidents; the picture shows a baby after a successful operation to remove a tumor on its face.
