Headline Hunting

We will start off the Monday headline bonanza with today's definition of irony: "World Health Organization chief Lee Jong-Wook dies suddenly." It's a serious, sad matter. But, the headline is also really, really ironic.
And now a pair of headlines that aren't much by themselves, but appeared literally back-to-back in the Yahoo! news feed. "FTC gasoline price probe finds nothing illegal" and "FTC: Some Gas Price Gouging After Katrina." Righty-o then. (Oh, the former is from Reuters, the latter from the Associated Press. Conclusions, political bickering, and conspiracy theories left as exercises for the reader.)
