Stretching Hard to Find Bad News

A friend forwarded me an e-mail describing this as "the stupidest AP headline I've ever seen," and I wouldn't argue the point. The headline currently reads, "As violence falls in Iraq, cemetery workers feel the pinch."

The story complains that cemetary workers are making less money because deaths are down.

Because of all of the false hopes expressed and proven fleeting over the last four years, I have been slow to get on the "surge is working" bandwagon. However, if cynics are having to reach this far for bad news or negative spin, one might begin to wonder.
