We still receive copies of the local newspaper that is published in the town where the House by the Parkway (North) is located. I took a look at it today and this was the banner headline:
REPORT SHOWS DROP IN CRIME
Directly under the headline and the accompanying story was a black box containing the following headline:
POLICE PROBE MURDER
We don’t have many murders in town, so and those we do have are a very big deal. This particular one was quite awful. The victim, a 54-year old woman, was murdered in her home and discovered by her parents, both in their nineties.
Perhaps the editor was absent from journalism class on the day when the subject was the juxtaposition of headlines.
