Real Headlines

Inspired by today's AP article "State Report: Texas Has Too Many Reports," I'm including below a list of real newspaper headlines I've collected over the years. I'm pretty sure all of these are from the San Antonio Express News. Congratulations to my hometown paper!

"Reader Worries About Canned Foods' Freshness"

"Salt, Pepper Shakers Often Fanciful"

"Bad News Turns Out Not As Bad"

"German Boss Frowns At Attack Idea"

"Rodeo Is Among Biggest: Almost 1 in 5 San Antonians say they like the show."

"Branson (Very) Slowly Becoming Hip"

"Sticking To It: A Guide To Glues"

"Chrissie Hynde Not Mellowing; Pretenders Leader Just Rocks On"

"Couple + Ideas = Monumental Artworks"

"War Stress Leads Many To Work Out"

"Pucker Up With Caution About Germs; Holiday kisses spread cheer and increase chances of contracting illness."

My favorite article is probably the one about stress over the war causing people to increase the intensity of their workouts. It brings a national news story to the local level!

I noticed that the SA Express News liked to use boxing (or popeye, or cartoon) metaphors, such as so-and-so slams this or bashes that.

I used to carry one around from the San Antonio paper. It said: 'Life may not be better, but it is longer'. I think I lost that wallet, though--sadly.
