A study in contrasts

Let's look at different headlines in different newspapers for the same issue -- a court ruling that allows dredging in the Columbia River:

From The Oregonian:
Court gives go ahead for dredging
From the Corvallis Gazette-Times, running the Associated Press version:
Appeals court refuses to block dredging of Columbia River
From Oregon Public Broadcasting:
Court Refuses To Halt Columbia Dredging
And then there's Reuters, which is off in its own little world:
U.S. court OKs study on deepening Columbia River
The point? Does it sound to you as if the people who wrote the AP and OPB headlines are a little disappointed in the ruling? Kudos to the Oregonian headline writer -- that headline is the least judgmental of the bunch.
