Rail accident headline in poor taste

August 24, 2012

I believe it was Samuel Johnson who said that puns are the lowest form of humor.

The Sun seems to relish puns. The headline concerning the death of two girls when a train derailed in Ellicott City ("Derailed lives," Aug. 22) was the most tasteless pun yet. Shame on you!
