I feel that the titles you have mentioned as mundane are apt enough to create a sense of curiosity.
'So true !!!' has three signs of exclamation that reflect the immediate reaction to a factual position in the Middle East. The truth itself is more frustrating then the mental and even physical slavery that is so evident.I thought that the title'Mental slavery in the Middle East' was a somewhat longer title. Similarly the mundane 'Madness is not the reason ' is the title given by Robert Fisk to his article and is more catchy. Short titles always lead a reader to the post.
As moderators you have the right to edit whatever you feel is relevant.
