NOW THAT’S A GREAT HEADLINE: The purpose of the headline, in both newspaper and advertising copy writing, is to grab the reader’s attention by giving him a headline that’s so provocative, he’s got to read the rest of the story. This headline by Nicholas Stix certainly fits the bill:
Does The New York Times Wish The President Dead?
It’s a great article, as well. Be sure to read the paragraph that’s third from the bottom.
