  The Boston Globe literally stopped the presses at about 1:30 a.m. to change 
the paper's front page and several inside pages to include the death of Sen. 
Edward Kennedy today.

When news broke at about 1:25 a.m. that the famed Massachusetts legislator had 
died, the Globe's first two editions had already been printed and shipped.

But after being awakened with the news, Editor Martin Baron ordered the third 
edition to be stopped and changed.
The obituary, which had the byline of former Globe reporter and editor Martin 
F. Nolan, had initially been written at least eight year ago, since Nolan left 
the paper in 2001.
