A Matter Of Emphasis.

USA Today: U.S. troop deaths fall in Feb.

Associated Press: U.S. Troop Deaths in Iraq Rise to 1,500.

How do you like your glass? Half-full, or half-empty?

Like the total number of U.S. troop deaths in Iraq is ever going to fall, barring the invention of some resurrection method.

Its not a half empty or half full comparison here.
Its a ridiculous headline that makes no sense vs a headline that is clear.
What doesn't make sense about the USA Today headline? U.S. deaths fell in February when compared to previous months.

Your sarcasm fails.
