Actually, I was taught that if italics are not available, the proper way to write a title is all caps. Putting it in quotation marks is wrong.

Of course, I learned this back in the 70s.

Correction. I think the ALL CAPS tradition started with the Apostle Paul when, in Galatians 6:10 he wrote: "See with what large letters I am writing to you with my own hand." He was yelling at the Judaizers, telling them that the Law saves nobody.

But I digress.

LOL, One of their best front pages, back in 1979 showed a picture of the captain of the Titanic in a lifeboat, dead, but his body preserved from the Arctic climate and a cigar in his mouth still smoldering. Must’ve been a reference to a then recent mob hit in NYC when Carmine Gallante got shot while smoking a cigar on an outdoor patio at a Brooklyn restaurant.
