Today's ridiculous Miami Herald headline

Kidnapping ends happily

Let's see if I have this straight: A guy gets kidnapped, has a hood wrapped around his head while he's driven around for two hours and pistol-whipped. The kidnappers demand $5,000 and if they don't get it they threaten to kill his family.

But it all ended happily because he was released?

Just imagine if that same headline writer had been working at a paper at the end of WWII:

Concentration camp ordeal ends happily for liberated survivors!

Ok, now I get it...you can put a happy face on just about any story!

Maybe someone should buy the Herald ...and then promptly close it!
