in today's news ...

Words1 Bob Sachs, at Rutgers-Camden, brought our attention to the "On Language" column in last Sunday's N.Y. Times Magazine section.  It shared a number of interesting headlines that show the English language run amuck:
"Squad Helps Dog Bite Victim"
"Red Tape Holds Up New Bridge"
"MacArthur Flies Back to Front"
"McDonald's Fries the Holy Grail for Potato Farmers"
"Gator Attacks Puzzle Experts"
"British Left Waffles on Falklands"
