From Unfreakable:

No update from Drew this week, so enjoy some of the favorite headlines from last week.

We're nearly halfway through 2010, so if you'll have nominees for Headline of the Year, make sure you're adding them to your favorites so you remember them when I put up a nomination thread later. Anything in these Headline of the Week threads are automatically nominated, but occasionally a good thread is overlooked.
