Today's bungled headline

Today's bungled headline award goes to the LA Times:

Militant's Death Ends 6-Week Lull

You have to read the article to find out that the contribution of Mohammed Abad Halil (a.k.a. Abu Hazneh) to the "6-week lull" was a massive car bomb containing a half-ton of explosives.

A 6 week lull? Wasn't there a suicide bombing in tel-aviv just recently?

How can they make up such obviously nonsensical headlines???
