Stop the Presses!

This Washington Post's March 24 headline for a story profiling Jeff Weise, the teen who went on a murderous rampage in Red Lake, Minn., really gets to the heart of the tragedy: "Shooter Described as Deeply Disturbed."

Hmm. Deeply disturbed? You don't say.

Does the phrase "No shit, Sherlock" come to mind?

Definitely a "Man Bites Dog" headline. Press perspective is completely Magoo'ed night now. Not to make light of the tragedy, but perhaps the Posties would have more luck with headlines if the gunman was "Genial, of good humour and asked for permission to discharge his weaponry."
