I love this story:

A Casper man claiming to be from the future, has been arrested for having too much to drink in the present.

The best reporting is local reporting. True fact.

    So my lede (the topic sentence of the story) would be: “President Trump tweeted angrily today that a Wyoming man has spoiled the ‘Calm Before the Storm’ reveal he hinted at Thursday night.”
