I usually find something to laugh at on the front page of The Brookline Tab (a typical recent piece heralded the arrival of new burrito shops to our town), but “Brookline Teachers Cut Extra Work” hit me. Teachers are so committed to what they do for the children and the community that their idea of a work slowdown is to stop doing some of the extra things that they’re not even paid for. Just a quick reminder of how much dedication people bring to that job.
Update: They’ve changed the headline to the bland “Coca-Cola to Uncap ‘Open Happiness’ Campaign”
Only in the seventh paragraph do we learn:
Mr. Bush will also announce a decision to increase American force levels in Afghanistan by about 4,500 troops, according to the draft of the speech.
It’s not a troop reduction. It’s a redeployment.

More and more, it’s hard to tell whether you’re reading an Onion headline or a legit one.
Radical Mormon Cult Financed By Selling Of Bob Dylan Bootlegs (Idolator). Not actually true, but what a headline.
Sure, it’s a misleading headline, but it makes going to the Republican convention seem much more interesting than I suspect it really is.
