    @orpheus Only thing I'd disagree with is that it's not written by cretins. Takes an enormous amount of skill to write like that, especially after years of training and proper reporting. The headline writers (sub-editors?) are geniuses too, highest paid in the business or some such. Otherwise, as you were.
    On that count, you are perhaps right. It must take some skill to smother years of experience in actual writing to create articles written for a ten year old's level of reading.

    Close your eyes and think of England, sort of thing. Come to think of it, that's probably been a headline. They got away with 'Bash the Bishop', after all.
