The authors of these articles don't write the headlines. They have a headline mill, if you will, that handles that chore and though they sometimes come up with clever one-liner headlines, these people are largely uneducated. I don't know who is specifically responsible for this headline, but I believe his name is Moe Ron Inamerica. He lives on your street. And my street. And your street, etc...

It's results me interesting how worried we are about people making fun or reference to the drug problem, misspelling Colombia or mistaken us by citizens of a different latin American nation, but how little we care when it comes to the issues that affect our country. As if this issues were a given.
