Adventures in headline writing (cont'd)

The Wall Street Journal's James Taranto has a little fun with a Chron headline today:

How Many Voters Will Fit on a Swing?

"Bill Clinton Courts Texas Voters in Galveston Swing"--headline, Houston Chronicle, Feb. 20

This one is kind of fun too:

Beauty and the bureacrats

It is a mystery why professional editors working in 2008 don't use spell checkers.

And then there was the jaw-dropper that appeared on the Chron D.C. Bureau's blog earlier:

Ted Kennedy tells Texans to treat Obama as they did JFK

Somebody had the good sense to change that one after some critical comments, although it's stunning that it made it to the web in the first place.

Chron headline writing is always an adventure!
