Inappropriate headlines.

How's this for one in our local rag "
Family threatened with tools by masked burglars
"?

Can anyone better that?

No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

Re: Inappropriate headlines.

Maybe I am missing something here but what is inappropriate about it?

Nothing specific, but pretty much every daily mail is blown out of proportion and inappropriate!!

Re: Inappropriate headlines.

Ahhhh but Luzern said the headline was inappropriate not the contents of the reportWink

 

He also said it was in his local rag so that eliminates the DM.

@Luzern

Sounds fine by me, what lines are you reading between?

Re: Inappropriate headlines.

"the burglars threaten the family with their tools" or, "the family threatened with tools by burglars [sic]"

Which one is it? Sounds like 'eat shoots and leaves to me' - and a zero tolerance to structure. Christ on a bike jumping a light.... again!
