A Special Treat For Readers Of The Dead Tree NY Times
A breakthrough moment for the front page of the NY Times, as they finally let the editor of "The Onion" take over.
Front and center on the front page is a photo from Iraq. In the background are several Iraqi men. The focal point, resting on the sand in the foreground, is a human skull. And why does the Times present this to its readers on a Friday morning? Directly underneath and to the left is a story headlined "Threat Gone, Iraqis Unearth Hussein's Nameless Victims"
. Fair enough.
However, directly underneath and to the right of the skull photo is the headline which caught my eye - "Bush Says Arms Will Be Found, With Iraqi Aid"
. Well, of course we will find the arms - we already have a "head" start!
