One of the major newspapers (not the campus one) in a pay-for-me box caught my eye. Don't remember which one, but I remember clearly what I first thought the headine said:

Mid-Size Cities Get Hip Cancer

This didn't seem right, so I read it again. Only then did I realize that it was actually two separate headlines, each on multiple lines, near each other; "Mid Sized Cities Get Hip (To Encourage Young Professionals)" and "Cancer research--" something-or-other.

Quite a bit different from my original reading, but you'd think someone would have noticed and rearranged the headlines.
