REALITY OR THE ONION? Right now, the top headline on the WaPo homepage is "More Fighting Expected as Cease-Fire Nears".

I know that the Post is trying to say, but it still sounds either nonsensical or Orwellian. As usual, the print headline is more sensible: Israel Accepts UN Deal; Both Sides Warn of More Fighting.

For some reason, the Post's web editors just have a hard time translating the print editors' work into HTML.

UPDATE: Now the Post has got an even better headline up: "Cease-Fire Takes Effect; More Fighting Expected". The link still goes to the same article.

Oh, I dunno. It brings back a certain deja vu--of each and every ceasefire as Yugoslavia slowly and bloodily disintegrated.
