A good week of headlines, and the Headline of the Year contest entries are starting to get sorted and set up. If you don't have TF, you won't be able to vote for the preliminary threads, which will start as soon as next week.
Thanks to everybody who volunteered to go through headlines from 2001-2005, we'll probably have those old-school headlines sometime at the beginning of next year.
