The Bell is Tolling, Unabated

The US is at risk of losing its top-notch triple-A credit rating within a decade unless it takes radical action to curb soaring healthcare and social security spending, Moody’s, the credit rating agency, said yesterday.

Interesting Headline

This headline caught my eye at “Goggle News”:  “Last of rogue cops sentenced to prison.”  But the following headline, in regards to the exact same events is much more interesting:  Former Chicago officer who cheated drug dealers gets 25 year sentence

Consider that headline for a moment.  Should an individual be outraged because said “Former Chicago officer” cheated drug dealers?  Or should an individual simply chuckle at the disconnect such a headline displays.
