Apparently jealous of the Wall Street Journal’s fingering of a billionaire, the San Francisco Chronicle decided to finger a terrorism suspect last week.
Becka, who hangs out at This Ordinary Day (alas, now defunct), sent this my way along with a note saying that upon seeing the headline, a “sweet-as-sugar friend’s first comment was, ‘I wonder if that’s why he was a terrorist!’”
Note to headline writers: Think about that, please.
Personally, I’d rather have fingers banned as a headline verb than have my fingers banned as personal carry-on items for flights.
I like being opposable, though.
