It's a copy-and-paste headline writing day our local news sites today, as two high profile scandal-addled star pairs get their parting wishes granted. We've got "Judge grants Charlie Sheen, wife, divorce in L.A." from the Daily News, and, moments later, "Judge grants Kelsey Grammer divorce in L.A." also from the Daily News (which, sheesh, seems just a leeeetle bit lazy of them, no?).
