Best Porn Star Name for a News Story

Mega-Loads

Editors' Picks

Call it the Cal Jammer of news stories: It's a big one. Thick with innuendo, the plan from giant oil firms, including ExxonMobil, to ship unwieldy truckloads of processing equipment through Idaho on their way to the tar sands in Alberta, Canada, is still getting folks all hot and bothered. Just the sight of those big, long, heavy loads is enough to make temperatures rise and Highway 12 residents swoon--with rage. Still, the moniker "mega-loads" was (and still is) too much for reporters. They snicker and giggle every time they have to say it, and headline writing has taken on a new dimension. Will it ever end? We don't know; those loads just keep coming and coming and coming.
