Gallagher Headlines

Headline writers, take heed: When I see articles entitled, “Gallagher Speaks” or Gallagher Criticizes ‘WP’ Article,” I expect something about a bald guy in a funny hat smashing watermelons with a hammer.

For that matter, no matter how long he’s in office, unless “Arial” precedes “Sharon” in the headline, I’m presuming the story is about a girl named Sharon. This makes headlines like, “Sharon Says ‘Very Satisfied’ with Abbas” very amusing.
