Pirates Owner's Response To Team President's DUI Gives Us The Best Headline Of The Day: "Nutting Right On Coonelly"

I'm pretty sure the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette intends to tell us that columnist Ron Cook thinks Pirates owner Bob Nutting is correct for continuing to support team president Frank Coonelly, whose DUI arrest in December just became public knowledge yesterday. The headline was no doubt written that way to fit the tiny space it was given on page D-1 of the paper's print editions; the online version of it is longer and more explanatory. This is either the work of an older copy editor who failed to see what else the headline might be saying, or else it's the clever doings of someone young and troll-y. For Coonelly's sake, I hope none of it got in his eyes.
