Soft Sunday News

Sunday news is traditionally a bit softer than weekday news, but today I noticed a bunch of, shall we say, softer headlines. So I decided to browse the popular news sites and copy a few of the more delightful leads and headlines.

So meet a selection of headlines from 8pm on this Sunday night. Each colour is a different NZ outlet – NZHerald, Stuff, Yahoo, MSN, Infonews, Scoop, Tv3 or TVNZ.
