Chron headline writers offer helpful advice

The subheadline on a Chron story in the * section today amused us:

Beating up the boss is a common fantasy
Astros pitcher tried just that, but the experts advise otherwise

Who can argue with expert advice?

Or with crack Chron headline writers who have a knack for conveying what's important.

So just one question -- Do the * kids fantasize about beating up their boss (it being such a common fantasy and all)? Or is it the Chron headline writers who have such fantasies?

Re: Chron headline writers offer helpful advice

The original headline actually said:

Beating up the editor boss is a common fantasy
Astros pitcher tried just that, but our spouses the experts advise otherwise

Re: Chron headline writers offer helpful advice

I guess you missed their headline the other day:

"Death of child under 6 is capital offense"

REALLY?!?!?  If a child under 6 dies, it is a capital offense.   How about, "MURDER of child under 6 is a capital offense."

Well, you know Rick Casey wanted it to be reduced from Murder....
