journalism bombs fall sharply at USA Today.

This is the lead headline on today's issue. I'm not kidding. Other people saw it, too.

Roadside bombs in Iraq fall sharply

You can click the link if you don't believe me.

Do people with real degrees actually get paid to write this stuff?


[Fa offers her recent fave, also spotted in a newspaper: "(Some performer whose name she can't remember and it doesn't matter because here comes the part we're after...) Finds Humor Among Hardship." Are there really professional writers out there who don't know how to spell "amid"?]

The Beehive should be journalists, then these things would not happen.

in defense of the title-writer: I find it very plausable that this headline was meant be a play on words of sorts. obviously bombs fall sharply, but it is also just as obvious (i should hope) what it actually signifies, in reference to the article.

despite the possible legitimacy, it is still very lame. so, yeah, i stand behind your question. Do people with real degrees actually get paid to write this stuff?
