The World Headline News has faced significant challenges over its 25+ years of semi-continuous publication. Among these issues have been contentious labor union negotiations (Ned's wife insists he take out the garbage), the financial and ecological issues facing traditional print publications.

Within months of its founding, the paper was forced to flee California and found a temporary safe haven in Albany, New York, USA. However, subsequent hard hitting WHN Editorials in 'Albania' resulted in the flight of the ‘newspaper’ and its founding family to White Rock, BC (!CANADA!) in 2002.
Canadians, eh, being so nice, have found it difficult to insist (ask yes, insist no) that the WHN go back to whence it came. We plan to continue to abuse this Canadian hospitality and to eat the honey dip Timbits®...
