ROY HORN wouldn't seem to be a headline writer's nightmare, but of course nobody knows him as "Horn." In reporting the recent unfortunateness with the tiger, what do you say? "Roy, of 'Siegfried and . . .' "?

An Associated Press report on Yahoo News made me chuckle: "Mauled Illusionist," it called him. (What a great name for a blog.)

And was The Onion's timing especially bad or especially good? (Oct. 7 note: In a rare display of good taste, the site yanked the "Commentary" in which Roy Horn acknowledges compliments about the show but adds each time: "That was Siegfried's idea.")
