It could be worse

For all the bashing I give the Chron, I have to admit that they could be worse. They could be like the NY Post, for example, who has given us such immortal headlines as HEADLESS BODY IN TOPLESS BAR.

I thought of that today when I saw the headline on the top story, Kopper admits kickbacks, referring to a former Enron executive who has pled guilty to defrauding Enron by paying kickbacks to former CFO Andrew Fastow and others as part of various money laundering schemes. Were the Chron more like the Post, we might have been treated to KOPPER KONFESSES KICKBACKS or maybe KOPPER: I WAS FASTOW'S BITCH. Thankfully, the Chron, where "vanilla" is more than just an ice cream, it's a way of life, would never do such a thing.
