From the 'Net: The Galactic Empire Times

Lord Vader announced the killing of Obi-Wan Kenobi
at the Imperial Palace on Coruscant.
A pretty brilliant Star Wars-themed satire of the New York Times headline the day Osama Bin Laden was deftly dispatched, The Galactic Empire Times takes a look at a VERY well known execution from a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. Yes, Lord Darth Vader steps up to the podium to announce that "Obi-Wan Kenobi, the mastermind of some of the most devastating attacks on the Galactic Empire and the most hunted man in the galaxy, was killed in a firefight with Imperial forces near Alderaan." The article is rather lengthy, and dips in to the expanded universe at times, but it is definitely worth a look. Unfortunately, this is not a functioning paper, rather just a brief article, but it is infinitely recommendable. Link is here.
