The Story's Right Here

Sometimes the most interesting stories come from what should be the most obvious angles.

Angles so obvious, in fact, that most people wouldn't think of them.

Take this Veterans Day piece from the Scripps Howard News Service. While most other outlets reported on how government officials, armed forces personnel and military families commemorated the holiday, Lisa Hoffman simply looked back and profiled the very men the holiday was named for -- the veterans of World War I. Of whom only 12 are left.

Sometimes you don't have to think so far outside the box.
