Headlines and such

Here's the headline from Arkansas's KTHV News:

Amtrak Stop Coming To Hope, Ark.



Now, if you click through to the article, you'll see that Amtrak is adding a train stop in Hope. You know, a place to get on or off the train.

I read it as a grammar mistake that Amtrak wasn't coming to Hope anymore. I just misread it and jumped to the conclusion that, once again, somebody mistyped a headline. I was thinking it was 'Amtrak stops coming' or 'Amtrak is going to stop coming to Hope'

Somebody commented on THV's website that they read it as a request: Amtrak, stop coming to Hope.

Just goes to show how we can read into things sometimes, doesn't it?
