Give me grammar, or give me death

The Guardian (UK) reports on the suicide, or rather, ‘suicide’ of a senior member of Syria’s government earlier today.
Other notable Guardian headlines throughout history:

Nirvana frontman ‘commits suicide’
Federal building ‘bombed’ in Oklahoma City
14 students ‘killed’ at a Colorado high school
Medicare bill ‘passes’ through Congress
Texas governor ‘elected’ U.S. president

And of course, this has been yet another ‘brilliant’ low culture post.

I think the suspicious syrian circumstances likely necessitate the quotes, not only for legal reasons, but to give some of us the chance to pull our tin foil hats outta the closet…
If only I could find my sense of humour in there as well…
