Drawing ire

In retrospect, it appears the original headline "Breathing Ire" for the Lake Orion-Stoney Creek boys soccer district centerpiece story in today's edition probably isn't as good as the one we went with, "Dragon Slayers."
I thought the 'Ire' head was more creative because we've used the 'Dragon Slaying' type headlines several times in the past, but I guess it's a limitless well available for use by Oakland Press copy editors. So, look forward to more similar headlines in the years to come, unless Lake Orion changes its mascot.
Last night was the first of the boys soccer districts and it was pretty crazy in the office, but we got it done and hope readers enjoy the extended coverage.
As predicted, nobody complained about the placement of the Shock farewell column by former beat writer Keith Dunlap. It did top the U-M-Penn State preview, though.
