Headline of the day

From The Huffington Post, re Argo as Best Picture.

Which they quickly changed to: How Do You Like Them Apples? Oh yes, where do we live now, and what can we expect our readers to understand? Our spoon fed culture deserves a spoon fed headline, right? How many would understand the delightful grammatical thrust of the first? Change it! O by the gods, must we always play to the lowest common denominator?

Tabloid headlines for a tabloid culture. Besides, when Argo plays out again, for real, in Iran, for a second time, Affleck can pick-up the award for best director. I was glad to see some kind of tribute to Tony Scott. The man knew how to tell a story. Among other things, he knew how to cut dialogue and action, which isn't as easy as it looks.
