Some comments about my bad headline, plus this week's top Turner Report/Inside Joplin posts

Occasionally, one of my headlines ends up saying something I did not intend for it to say.

One such case was in the post that was the most visited post this week on the Turner Report.

"Joplin attorney whose license was suspended for multiple drunk driving convictions, applies for reinstatement." Many people read that and naturally assumed that I was writing about Kevin Cure's driver's license.

The post was actually about his petition to have his law license reinstated.

Headline writing can be difficult, but there is no reason why I can't write headlines that say what they are supposed to say. I will try to do better in the future.

Big announcement coming

Hopefully, some time today I will have a big announcement about a project I have been working on for the past few months.

A lot of research has gone into it and I am hoping it is something that will interest you.

I thought you meant Cure's law license, but maybe that means I have some common sense.
