BLOG: This Is Breaking News?

So, the other day I registered with Washingtonpost.com, so I could continue to read their articles online, and in the process I checked the box to receive breaking news alerts. I figured, yeah, I get a lot of email, but signing up for alerts on the real 'hot news' stories can't hurt. So yesterday, I get my first one:

Spelman to Step Down
National Zoo director Lucy H. Spelman is planning to quit at the end of the year after a study found failings in animal care, a spokeswoman said today.

Now, I'm not saying that this isn't a story worth reporting in the newspaper . . . but breaking news? This couldn't wait until the morning paper?

The Post certainly found it important - it's the lead front page story in today's paper.
