When I checked the New York Times online this morning, the main story on the front page* was “Baby Rescued From Wreckage of Car Bombing in Iraq.” It featured a photograph of a woman holding a baby on her lap, and the following lede:
“The rescue of a baby from the wreckage of a bombing that killed eight seemed to be proof that Iraqis were still capable of extraordinary acts of humanity.”
I think my favorite part is the “seemed to be” qualifier. Just to let us know that it could be a false alarm -Iraqis might not actually be capable of extraordinary acts of humanity.
*(If the home page has changed by the time you read this, the line is in the fourth paragraph of the story itself.)
