If you watch the headlines a lot, you'll notice that there's something about spring that puts people in a good mood. We tend to get really, really great headlines in April and May, and it looks like we're back into that swing now (two great headlines from earlier today already look like solid Headline of the Year candidates).

These were some of our favorites from last week. Bravo, submitters.
