DIGGING EXCITEMENT

I just don't get this headline.

BIG BERTHA BEGINS BORING TUNNEL BENEATH SEATTLE

Should there be something compelling or arousing or stimulating about watching a big hole in the ground...get bigger?

OK. Maybe 7 minutes, 12 tops and then it's on to buy those new shoes.

Even the workers are smoking cigarettes and staring blankly like they can barely remember the summer they went swimming with their friends at the lake and that strange thing happened...

I say when newspapers are so desperate for headlines that they make childish fun of legitimate construction projects...well, it's just not the world I grew up in, you know what I'm saying?
