Watching the show Ancient Aliens, about every five minutes, the narrator would ask...

"Could ancient aliens ..." Have Built The Pyramids|Be the Beings on the Painting|Have Talked to the Hopi centuries ago?

Could is a great way to start a sentence when you presuppose an all powerful force. Could an All-Powerful Force have created the George Washington Bridge? I, for one, wouldn't put it past it.

Another great headline starter is Will. Will lets you get away with almost anything. I was just reading Will SNL Restart Lindsay Lohan's Career?

So, it's not news, and yes, it's commentary or speculation, but of so general a sort that anything goes. Will Space Monkeys Vote for Romney? Yes, no, I mean yes...as the kids say.
