One thing I have learned since I have been writing occasional pieces for publication is that the title used for articles is very rarely the one suggested by the author. Choosing the title seems to be a task jealously guarded by sub-editors, and the author isn't even consulted. I've lost count of the times I've gnashed my teeth over this phenomenon, but I gather it's very common.

Moral of the story: never judge an article by its title, and certainly never blame the author for it.
