Subtlety Is Not Their Strong Point

Call me naive, but I though the headline of a news story was supposed to, you know, tell you the main point of that story. You know, like “War Over,” or “Nixon Resigns,” or even, “Dewey Defeats Truman.”

Given that, wouldn’t you expect the headline of a story about Saddam Hussein’s appearance before an Iraqi court today to go something like, “Saddam Faces Court”? Or even, “Defiant Saddam Charged”?

Apparently not. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution leads its homepage today with: “Saddam: The Real Criminal Is Bush.”

Yeah. That’s the most important thing that happened in the courtroom. Mmm hmm.
