Just think about it for a moment. The answer is obvious even if you've never read a news story in your life. How would you tell a news story? Give the least important details first, then work up to a climax? I don't think so. You want to get the most important stuff up front first, then add less and less important details.

And, btw, do you ever do any of your own homework? Or do you really expect us to respond to every one of those silly threads you've started? I think you'll find the patience of most of us is not infinite.
