Our June/July 2016 issue of First Things is hot off the press and available on our website. As a special piece of bonus content, I am here to share with you, loyal readers, some of our also-ran titles: headings for pieces that were suggested at our titles meeting but nixed for being too punny, too punchy, or simply too much.
In the list below, the final title of the piece is in bold, and the nixed titles are listed below it. Enjoy!
