Everyone is talking about headlines, it seems.

David Marsh, The Guardian’s style guide editor, took on clichés today, in his Mind your language column, while yesterday Sally Baker, feedback editor at The Times, discussed the tricksiness of summing up a story accurately in a headline, in her Feedback column.
