I’m told that Sidney (Ohio) Daily News news editor Melanie Speicher wrote the headline.
UPDATE: Speicher (in the photo) tells Romenesko readers:
It was a bad day at work and it was probably my second or third choice as the headline. As I typed it, it clicked what I was typing and I laughed. So I needed the laugh as much as anyone else. …As far as I know, there’s been no reaction from the readers.
