In the New York Times's New York section: soda restriction test at arena juxtaposed with skeptical column

The first page of the New York Times's New York section offers Michael Powell's excellently skeptical column in the left column, In Queens, an Oasis Neglected by the City, with a not-quite-investigation: New Brooklyn Arena Serves as a Test: Will Fans Accept Smaller Sodas?

Sure, I know there are valid reasons for playing up the latter story, given the high public profile, and Powell's column does contain photos with the jump. But the juxtaposition is a metaphor of sorts for the Times's overall Atlantic Yards coverage.
