As she flipped through the newspapers, she saw headlines such as "Food shortages hit Mitika," "Hurricane departs coastline," and "Elkwood ravaged by flooding." Is my apostrophe and comma usage correct? Newspaper headlines are supposed to be lowercased, correct? (Except for the first letter and any proper nouns).

    All looks perfect!! Congrats! =)

  • English -

    Your punctuation is correct.

    Whether headlines are printed in upper or lower case depends upon the specific newspaper's style. The New York Times capitalizes most words in its headlines, but my local daily paper does not.
