Spot the odd one out

Three headlines:
  • Unruly lawyers started violence, police exceeded limits: Srikrishna -- The Hindu
  • Srikrishna slams CJ for soft-pedalling row - SC puts ball in high court -- Deccan Chronicle
  • Srikrishna report indicts protesting TN lawyers -- Times of India
The report places equal blame on both sides, but you wouldn't know it by reading the TOI or the DC versions (The DC version, by the way, is uncharacteristically wishy-washy).

Speaking of newspapers, is it just me, or has R K Laxman jumped the shark? The You Said It series cartoons are giving Sudhir Talang and Keshav a good run for their money in the "Which newspaper has the most insipid cartoon" contest. Time for graceful retirement, I think.
