Speaking of headlines we’ve seen before, how about this one from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s Derrick Gold : “Looper Struggles To Find Location”. Sounds to me like he’s in Tampa, though Sucksville would’ve been a correct answer, too.

I have to say, though I didn’t like it at first, it’s really growing on me.
