This is a Reuters headline, not an A2K thread title. But, it was too perfect to pass up.

@littlek,
a weird headline from a Toronto paper in the 80's, a high school had gone north on a skiing trip and a child died after falling from a ski lift, after the investigation cleared everyone of any wrong doing, the papers headline read

"School Board Finds Fatal Trip Was In Order"

not an inaccurate description, but it makes it sort of sounds like they were due for a fatal trip, maybe some odd class size reduction exercise

@littlek,
I looked back and somehow did not see it up there. New ones are harder to spot than I expected. How about
Help Me Combat a Gardening Terrorist.
