Good and bad headlines

The bad headline I found comes from the front page of the New York Post. The headline reads CBS News Beauty in Iraq Shock, Sexty Minutes. This head is confusing, sexist and just plain bad writing. Puns are the lowest form of humor, but more importantly they're lazy writing.
You can see it here at the newseum's website. http://www.newseum.org/todaysfrontpages/hr.asp?fpVname=NY_NYP&ref_pge=lst

The good headline I found comes from the Washington Post style section and reads, Much-Decorated Marine Vet Takes Aim at Iraq war Movies. The headline is good indicator of the article, uses language well and is catchy.
