I love the way the Chicago Sun Times writes their headlines.

My favorite Sun Times headline ever was when Pope John Paul was still alive and he announced -- just in case folks had lost track -- that Catholicism was the one true faith. The Sun Times ran a headline in the upper left hand corner of the page -- alongside the masthead -- accompanied by a picture of the pope with his staff raised and his other arm lifted in blessing. Basically: both arms raised, and a single finger pointing straight up.

The headline read: "We're Number 1!"

What is it about the Sun everywhere that is so....well ours puts headlines like that next to photos from a totally different story. Often the photo is of some innocent person connected to a good samaritan story that everyone now thinks is a mobster.

My favourite headline ever was one of those National Enquirer ones. Miracle! Stare at this inkspot for 30 seconds and then look at the white square and Jesus will appear!
