I like putting these together every week because it's fun to go back through and see all the great headlines. Some weeks are stronger than others, though, and this was an exceptionally strong week for the main page headlines. It was really difficult to winnow this week's batch down to just 11 good headlines, I see several that could easily make it to the Headline of the Year contest. Well done all around, Farkers.
