Yeah, I don't know why the editor at HN felt it was better to change it to the pre-parenthetical title, but the second part was so much better. A pretty shlubby (and completely unnecessary) move. How does that help anyone?
I was the first person to vote / comment on it, and I doubt I would have even looked twice at it if I had pigeonholed it as "a post about Louisville." I'm glad it got to the #1 spot for as long as it did with the originally-submitted title.
I guess the lesson here is give blog posts principal titles that are more attention-grabby, so HN editors won't edit them on you.
