Sure, the Post and Daily News have snappy headlines, but they're a tabloid, so we expect that of them. So it's nice to see a non-sensational but still very funny, hitting-our-immature-funny-bone-just-so headline:

"Love Canal Declared Clean, Ending Toxic Horror" from The New York Times.

Love Canal, NY, near Niagara Falls, was the first Superfund site, and has now been declared clean. It's taken more than twenty years to clean up all the toxic chemicals that had been leaching into residential areas and schoolyards, even evacuating the town at one point.
