Headline Writers

It must be a fun job, writing headlines. You see what’s going on from the eyes of several columnists and reporters. And occasionally you get to play word games – sometimes without even knowing you are doing so (maybe, maybe not…).
Here’s a head from the NYT today, for example:


Terrorist Attack on Power Grid Could Cause Broad Hardship



Well, it certainly WAS a TERRORIST ATTACK in Benghazi that has caused this continuing brouhaha of “War and Piece.”

Petraeus IS in the POWER GRID.

The predicament in which Petraeus has put his paramour AND his wife certainly is HARDSHIP.

But one normally wound’t expect the NYT (the NYT!!) to call these two women “BROADS.”


And I think the one who wrote this headline is on the late show; shouldn’t it be:


Terrorist Attack on Power Grid  Causes Broad Hardship

About Alex Scipio

About Alex Scipio: Alex moved out of the People's Republic of California to the Free State of Arizona, finally tiring of the lack of the Bill of Rights, the overgrown idiocracy, and the catering to non-Americans & welfare recipients. He still wonders how America got from Truman, Eisenhower, and Daniel Patrick Moynihan to the Liberal and Conservative extremes so badly managing America today. And, yes, islam DOES need to be annihilated. And doing what he can to get folks away from the extremes of political life.
