Overnight Ponderings

by shamanic

Tonight's topic: The art of headlining.

Which of these articles do you really want to read:

Peruvians get sick from apparent meteorite crater

Mystery illness strikes after meteorite hits Peruvian village

The first headline is more factually accurate and the article contains far more information than the second, but come on, we all know that you're just dying to read about the space-borne illness that survived entry into the Earth's atmosphere and has sickened a village! Run, run for the hills! Oh wait, the village is in the hills.
Another excellent trip into crazy headline land: Karl Rove has an op-ed up at the Wall Street Journal titled - don't laugh, he's a very serious person - Republicans Can Win on Healthcare. Karl Rove might be the only person left in America who thinks the Republicans can win on anything, and that... well, that's just precious.
