Over on our news blog, we reported today that the folks behind Kylde Warren Park -- the downtown "deck park" that's already cluttered by a stage, ping-ping, a dog run, foosball, a reading room, a playground, a track, some weird overhangs, food trucks and some other stuff I'm probably forgetting -- are planning to install a synthetic ice rink.
We went with a straightforward headline: "Yes, Klyde Warren Park May Get an Ice Rink." Here are the headlines I wanted to write:
- Dallas Already Bored With Klyde Warren Park, Plans to Cram in an Ice Rink
- Whew. For a Second There It Seemed Like They Wanted Us to Have a Picnic or Something.
- Fifty Bucks Says Dallas Will Raise a Billion Dollars and Get Gehry to Design the Ice Rink
- Hey, If They Throw in a Mini Rail Road Maybe They Don't Need the Grass At All
- Klyde Warren Park: Give Them Credit, They Left it Alone for a Whole Three Months
