Why he no?

Ah, the woes of upstyle.

Well, and the woes of sticking to the "no articles" rule even when the article would give the old parser a well-deserved break.* And of not hyphenating compounds that have been hyphenated since the early 19th century (exemplified in current usage, not to rub it in or anything, by whoever wrote the hed on the homepage).

And -- at Fox, of all places! -- of quoting Marx in heds.

* That's why Your Editor collects heds of the form "Smith gets shot at tourney."
