    Thursday Apr 16 | via The Wichita Eagle 

    If a reporter and his newspaper know in advance - months in advance, as it turns out - that a man intended to undertake a stunt that could sow panic in the nation's capital, are they obligated to alert law-enforcement authorities? And should they be faulted for not doing so until the last minute? The Tampa Bay Times faced just such an ethical dilemma when it interviewed a Tampa-area resident named Doug Hughes last summer. Hughes certainly made good copy.

    A man dressed in camouflage rode his bicycle to a county prison near Gettysburg on Thursday, displayed a gun to a guard in the lobby and then fired it several times during a standoff outside before a state trooper shot him, the county prosecutor said.
