The Best of Both Worlds

Here's our favorite news headline of the week, and our favorite blog headline of the week. Hats off to great headline writers. They help focus readers' attention in this age of too many distractions, and help guide our eyes to something worthwhile. I, for one, found it nearly impossible to resist reading either of these stories after scanning the witty & imaginative headlines. But enough about me. What were your favorite headlines this week?

Morning. Thanks for this post. It introduced me to Mr. S (can't recall spelling of his name from memory) from KSU. Laughed like crazy at his list of 25.

Glad you found it worthwhile, Donna. Bill Sledzik is much beloved among his students and former students, and one glance at his blog tells you why. He writes with such warmth, humanity and good humor. We need a few thousand more teachers like that.

Thanks for the kind words, John. One thing I tell my students and remind myself of each day is that life is short. Don't take yourself too seriously. Besides, if you can't have fun blogging, what's the point?

Your students will never fully understand how short life is until they're a bit older, but they'll surely remember who they initially learned that (and so much more) from. Thanks for the wonderful way you touch so many lives, Bill.

Bill's blog headline and list were a hoot! :)

Glad you enjoyed them also, Diane. And how nice that they also prompted Bill to visit and leave a comment.
