    Felix, I am pretty sure that a major part of why I continue to read you after all of these years, even after our, well, philosophical differences, is that I think we might actually agree on more than we disagree.

    And after being a journalist (of sorts) since when you were in whatever public school you were educated in (yes, in the UK, so I understand the difference), this is how I write stories, kind of gingerly putting my toes in the water before diving in. This (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In_medias_res) is likely me.

    But yes, headlines are always the bane of the journalist’s existence. You mention taking them back from our social media rulers, but of course, journalists have rarely been able to wright their headlines, and you should well be aware of that. Since the dawn of Gutenberg, editors have always jealously retained their ability to falsely describe what was writ.

    Of course, I may just read you to continue to get my heart beating soundly in the morning . . .
