WEDNESDAY'S HUM (05-23-07)
TRAIN KILLS MAN TRYING TO KILL WOMAN
I like this headline the best, from ABC News. It evokes an image, from an old horror movie, in which a train takes on a human persona and kills bad people, one by one.
Here are some other headlines from the same story, which happened two days ago in California.
TRAIN TRACK DEATH PLOT BACKFIRES - News.com Australia
This reminds me of an old newspaper headline, say back in the 30's.
MAN DIES TRYING TO KILL WOMAN WITH TRAIN - NBC News
Here I envision a really strong man picking the train up and whacking the woman over the head with it.
DEATH ON TRACKS ENDS LOVER'S SPAT - L.A Daily News
This is a classic tabloid header.
MAN TRYING TO KILL HIMSELF, GIRLFRIEND ON TRAIN TRACKS DIES, BUT WOMAN LIVES - Tyler(Texas) Morning Telegraph
For this one, I had to hire a linguist to help decipher the damn thing!

FIVE CORNERS UPDATE
Gardening day at the Essex Junction Five Corners light today. I put the car in park, got out, ran to Depot Home and Garden and purchased some sunflower seeds. Got back to the intersection and planted them on a grassy strip near the Quik Mart. Me and my fellow idlers were able to watch the sunflowers grow to about six feet before the light changed! It was a beautiful experience.
