Headlines of the Week

The Biology of Joy and Sex Without Nipples--two recent headlines almost guaranteed to attract wandering web surfers to stop and click. Again, we ask the question: do the articles deliver on the headline's promise? As Fox "News" would say, we report; you decide. And speaking of Fox, we loved David Letterman's recent crack about the propaganda outlet: "The Obama Administration has said they don't consider Fox News to be a legitimate news network. They're about eight years behind the rest of us." We also admired how the lefty pub In These Times skillfully used this pleasing pun and how the New York Times managed to grab attention with this headline.
