Steer clear of all war references

I just read the "Shock and Awe" headline about the Silvertips great Saturday performance.
I understand that this phrase is unfortunately becoming part of our vernacular.
But so many of the 2,000 cruise missiles sent to Iraq in the first two days of that war landed on civilians that many refer to "Shock and Awe" as a 21st century Guernica.
Regardless of how one feels about those Iraqi fatalities, their necessity and our sensitivity to them, I have no doubt The Herald should use more appropriate sports headlines.
