Best Headline Of 2003 Nominee

Yes it's early, but "A Cheeky Protest" (Joe Garofoli of the San Francisco Chronicle *covers* the forthcoming Unreasonable Women Bring Witness anti-war activities) sets the bar high. Justice Bedsworth discusses the Nigerian women who reportedly inspired the northern Californian group, and points out that, culturally, things are a little different here: "In this country, naked women would be a perk. If the union could arrange a few hundred naked women to come by the jobsite every day, their men would work for free. The whole concept of minimum wage would go right out the window. [n.4: Female union members would still have to be paid, but the disparity in wages issue would soon become moot.]"
