Headlines that could benefit from an editor's touch

Ok, I'm no James Taranto, who routinely skewers oddly worded headlines, but I kinda thought this one was funny, from an ELCA News Service press release:

Lutherans Planning to Remember Fifth Anniversary of September 11 Attacks

You see, this is something that they cannot actually do until September 12. Unless what they really mean is "Lutherans Planning to Remember September 11 Attacks on Fifth Anniversary"

Ok, to be fair, I frequently go back and edit my stuff. And this one was written by an intern. So I'm just poking a little fun at the (actually pretty good) news department at my old denomination.
