Razed eyebrows

I simply have to point out the headline in Today: Probe on ex-MFA senior official raises eyebrows! Arrrgghhhhh. On  Page 1 some more! The headline writer has no other way of putting the message across? Raised eyebrows? I mean, whose eyebrows were raised? The headline writer’s? The MFA official’s? His colleagues’? The readers’? Me? What happened to the straight news headline?

By the way, it was a good scoop by BT which ran the story yesterday. Way to go!
