HEADLINE OF THE WEEK 

Oh, so many wonderful headlines and so little space to share them. The Commercial Appeal ran a piece by Mary Powers titled “Memphis Nurses Disciplined,” which sounds like a porno movie about naughty Memphis nurses getting the spanking they deserve. In fact, it was a non-porno story about naughty Memphis nurses getting the spanking they deserve. We were very disappointed.

WMC ran the too-true-to-be-funny headline: “Sweeping changes might be ahead for Memphis City Schools’ students,” which, in the current climate, sounds more like a guidance counselor suggesting career options than a plan to overhaul Memphis’ crappy schools. But our favorite headline this week comes from WREG’s Web site: “Dogs Gone Wild in North Memphis.” Okay, a headline suggesting that there are dogs in North Memphis willing to bare it all for your viewing pleasure wasn’t really that funny, but the story included the line: “It’s about 20 to 25 dogs in there ... all kinds rockwilers,” which made us giggle. For those who don’t know, the “rockwiler” [a.k.a., “Rottweiler”]is a breed of vicious fighting dogs trained specifically to tear the tires off a three-wheeler.
