:lol: :lol: I am not sure which one is better, the fact that Teen Pregnancy drops sharply after age 25... or spending 1/4 million to advertise that they are broke. All very good Kakaze. :lol: :lol:

California's problems could easily be solved if their Governor was to make a couple more movies. :lol:

You've got to wonder haven't you! :lol:

I'm pretty sure that papers actually employ people just to write the headlines. A friend and I were once talking to a guy in the pub whose job was headline writing.

I think I remember seeing a bunch of those on a segment Jay Leno used to do called Headlines. For years we had people scouring the newspapers, trying to get something onto The Tonight Show, so I'm pretty sure most of them are from the U.S. :)
