Um, Bats and Balls

On Slate.com today, William Saletan summarizes a study that demostrates a link between female promiscuity and testes size in bats. Predictably, the headline for the story is "Bats and Balls."

The thing is, the Economist wrote about this study almost two months ago (December 8, 2005, to be exact). And the headline of the Economist story? You got it - "Bats and Balls." (Unless you have a subscription to Economist.com, you'll just have to take my word for it.)

I know the subject matter naturally lends itself to this title, but come on guys, can't we exhibit a modicum of creative independence?
