Headline of the Week

And it’s only Monday morning. The subject is tragic, but the headline that Andrea sent me from Canada.com is deeply wrong:

Collapse in subway line planned for Beijing Olympics

BEIJING — A cave-in along a subway line being built for the 2008 Beijing Olympics killed four construction workers, state media reported Sunday.

The bodies of three workers who apparently suffocated after the tunnel collapse had been recovered by Sunday, the official Xinhua News Agency said. The body of a fourth worker could not immediately be recovered, it said. Two workers remained missing.

From the headline, you’d think it was an article about forward-thinking terrorists or dodgy construction contractors.
