A gentle reminder

Watch what you quote in headlines.

I guess it'd be overly technical to point out that Washingtonpost.com is not as closely related to the Washington Post as one might think.

Well, it bears mentioning in the Campaign Desk story. But the casual reader probably doesn't make a disctinction, I'd guess.

And this brings up a related point: How many newspaper Web sites have copy editors writing their headlines? How much thought is put into these headlines? Is there any rim/slot process? And what percentage of a workers' nightly load is headline writing?
