I don't know why it is that newspaper writers and editors think that perfectly competent and serious newspaper articles beg for titles that are puns. It's been a longstanding tradition—blight, is more the term—and for some reason it soldiers ever onward, ever undiminished. A newspaper writer or editor will use a pun for a title no matter how bad the pun is, no matter how much of a reach it is, even if it has very little bearing on the contents of the article and even if it adds nothing to the thesis of the article. Often, the phrase that's being punned has nothing to do with the article either. I honestly don't know why this mannerism has developed and survived, but a pox on it.
The article at this link isn't a bad article, if you can get past the wretched, cowering spotted cur of a headline. It's a review of "two current shows presenting work from that decade suggest why our reception of color has been so blurry." Fine. So what has that got to do with "wish you were here"? Daniel Kunitz ought to be ashamed, and if it's not his headline, he ought to sue for defamation of his professional abilities and morever, elementary literary taste. Woeful.
And a note to magazine and newspaper editors everywhere: If you must use puns, try to use them only when they actually work.
Puns left as comments to this articlet will not be posted. I'm not in the mood. A pox on the pun, I say.
