Secure from general quarters

STOP THE PRESS: Bin Laden just got on a 52 bus at Albert Hall and he's headed for the Sun in Splendour!

Or, um, not. As the Times lede notes, "FBI agents searching for one of the world's most wanted fugitives were in London talking to Scotland Yard after a man resembling him was videoed in Europe." That'll be James Bulger, who might or might not have been videotaped six months ago in Sicily. Not quite as exciting as it sounds the Fox way, is it?
Hence tonight's Fox Hed Lesson: When qualification is part of the story, it needs to be part of the hed. No exceptions.
