Well, it's the middle of October, which means I'm spooling up Headline of the Year again for 2012. Those of you who are TFers, keep an eye out for the voting threads in TFD over the next few weeks.
On a side note, a while back I mentioned that I was going through old headlines from 2001-2005 to have some contests (probably after the new year) to pick some of those great headlines from before I was able to set things up. A few people have volunteered, but with over 100,000 headlines involved, having a few more people wouldn't hurt if it sounds interesting to you.
If it does, shoot me an email. Unlike last time, I actually have stuff set up to email to you.
