Mitt Takes Gold in Golden State

When I was a newspaper editor, one of my particular gifts was writing headlines. For example, I wrote a profile of a ski-slope reporter who had to get up ridiculously early (like 3:45 a.m.) to check the quality of the powder in Deer Valley. His name was Jim Miles. My headline? "Miles to Go Before I Sleep."

Headlines were the strawberries in my cream.

So I don't really write many headlines nowadays, but let me make a suggestion for tomorrow morning's LA Times:

"Mitt Takes Gold in Golden State."
