I was reading a blog regarding misleading headlines. You know misleading headlines. Headlines made to capture your immediate attention to get you to stop and read them. I agree with that blog and found a good example. So now I try to pay more attention to headlines for truth.
I missed this headline somehow, but it came to my attention via a Government Executive response article the next day on the same subject. These may be a bit old, but if you are not aware of these articles, you should take note. The discussion is quite interesting. Now folks are counting the number of days federal employees in DC are not at work. Amazing. Anyone counting how often Congress is not at work? Should be an interesting statistic.
