‘Times’ Couplets: Even the Galaxy Knows Urban Renewal

Wherein we arrange Times headlines in verse to bring you secret knowledge from the Gray Lady.

Big Wishes, Easy Credit, Tough Times

A Seedy Stretch, Sure, but Worth Saving, Denizens Say
(Faith-Based Initiative).

Modernity and Tradition at a Cultural Crossroads“—
Where Is the Clarion Call to Arms?

Winners Amid Gloom and Doom
Describe How They Hope to Improve the World.

(Take a Big Hit? Then Deliver a Bigger Blow.)
Dividing Wall Starts to Fall 

Finding Peace, and Looking for a Job,
Saturn Goes Back to Warm and Fuzzy,

Finds He Can Go Home Again
Goes Around, Comes Around. —Lizzie Skurnick
