The Headline Writer

Forgive the headline writer.
When he pens the phrase

GLOBAL ECONOMIC
MELTDOWN IMMINENT

he is just trying to make
a few bucks so he can
feed his cat

big bold
scary words

sell more papers
get more pageviews
get clicked get clicked

more often than

THINGS ARE REALLY
NOT SO BAD I MEAN
THE SUN IS SHINING
AND THE PLUMS
ARE ON SALE
