Not the caption I'd use.


Ike Turner dies in San Diego at age 76, by Elliot Spagat, AP, via Yahoo! News.

Yahoo! has labeled the corresponding link on their front page, "Legendary but troubled Ike Turner dies."

Troubled? How about "Wife-beating psycho comes to a well-deserved end"?

Of course they had to use "troubled". People cannot speak ill of the dead! :)

I mean, there's an entire movie about what a scumbag he is and all they say is TROUBLED? Screw that. (I'm very eloquent today.)

How about this headline I heard was used by a national paper: "Ike Turner beats Tina to Death". Get it?
