Today, we're introducing a new weekly feature: "When headlines go wrong." Each week, we'll scour the net to find those headlines that don't quite seem to work. If you see any headlines that seem just a little bit off (or can be read a completely different way from what the author intended) please e-mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org. That said, here's the March 24th edition.
