The lost art of headline writing

This was prominently displayed on Google News this morning. "Boehner tweets good wishes to Giffords." Really, USA Today? Is that where we are now in terms of news?

Here are a few alternative headlines:

--Unpaid Intern in Boehner's Office Uses Twitter for Boss in Between Looking for Duke Nukem Reviews and Stalking Ex-Girlfriend on Facebook
--Normal Civility Happened Online
--Why Hasn't Weiner Done Anything This Week?

Actually, maybe normal civility happening online is newsworthy.

UPDATE: Weiner! Weiner! Weiner!
