Hapless Headlines

More than six decades in the newspaper business has given me the opportunity to collect, correct and clip out headlines that have caused red faces – from embarrassment by those who wrote them and from laughing by those who read them. Many sneaked through the editorial staff at papers I worked for, others hit the streets in competing pages, a lot were sent to me by colleagues, and the rest I just read in papers picked up here and there.

Some of you must have seen some of them. Like:
