Heads up

An unwritten rule among newspaper headline writers is to be tasteful when dealing with tragedies.

So let’s take a look at how various newspapers available in the Hudson Valley headlined the Wednesday morning story about Sen. Ted Kennedy being diagnosed with a brain tumor.

Daily Freeman, Kingston: Kennedy has cancerous brain tumor

Times-Herald Record, Middletown: Citizens, politicians pull for stricken Sen. Kennedy

Times Union, Albany: Cancerous growth in Kennedy’s brain

New York Times: Kennedy has a malignant brain tumor

USA Today: Kennedy fights for his life

New York Post: TED IS DYING!

Once a rag, always a rag.
