Here's the item from the newsletter that inspired the contest:

One word

“Deadline,” “Extremists,” “Dismantle,” “Sabotage,” “Determination,” “Gridlock,” “Wreckage,” “Hustle” and “Working.” These single words headline fundraising emails sent as the Sept. 30 Federal Election Commission deadline approaches. The bipartisan one-word subject fundraising appeals are part of what appears to be a move toward shortening subject-lines for the cash quests. Perhaps the goal is simply to get folks to open the email without noticing the one-word desire: Money. -- Rachel E. Stassen-Berger
