This isn't a good time to visit. Our roads are going to be a mess all summer.

That's pretty bad, when the headline is the opposite of the story.

From today's Wisconsin State Journal on line:

Cloud of dust causes motorcycle driver to rear end tractor

http://host.madison.com/news/local/crim ... 02e66.html

A bad, vicious cloud of dust arose suddenly from the earth...

Sounds positively Biblical.

However, I like the use of "rear end" as a verb. Regionalism at its best.

Well, it's not the headline that needs help, but the first paragraph:
Republicans abruptly shut off debate before a dramatic vote approving a bill that requires women seeking an abortion first have an abortion performed.

A WPR announcer repeated this on air this afteroon. I guess the language does seem plausible given what the Rs have been up to.
