Xpesmas lede roundup

Q: Is it still a Forbidden Lede when the LA Times writes it?
A: Yes. The writers who produced
WASHINGTON — Christmas arrived Wednesday for the kidney dialysis industry.
... will face eternal torment, as will the editors who approved it.

Q: Well, how about if it's in the feature section?
A: Yes. Abandon all hope, ye who could have stopped
'Tis the season to be jolly, right?

Q: But if there's another Xpesmas cliche in the hed, that cancels everything out, right?
A: No. That is an arithmetic fallacy. Twice damned are those who added
Seasonal brews could make even Scrooge smile

To repeat: No Scrooges. No Grinches. Didn't no nothing come early. 'Tisn't no season for no part of nothing. There are not enough negatives nowhere to indicate how eternally banned the Forbidden Ledes are.
