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!!

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!
