Seeing one of those headlines on the newspaper's website this morning made me wonder.
How many SR headlines have included the wording “ends in stabbling”?
Not so many as you might suspect.
In fact, in searching our electronic archives, I could find just four in the past 15 years.
Of course, that was just looking at print editions and considering only local news stories.
More significantly, that counts only headlines with the exact wording “ends in stabbing.” Certainly many other stories about local stabbings had headlines with different wording.
After all, sometimes the stabbing is not the end but is just the start of another Lilac City adventure.
