Yes, but the "Boo!" in the Post's hed and the "Yay!" in the Times' are implied.

Anyone feel strongly about the casing on either of those headlines?

I'm an old fashioned girl who likes her capital letters at the front of appropriate words in a headline. I don't care if it "slows down" the reader. It gets them to actually read it, and it simply looks nicer, IMHO.

I don't have a strong opinion on the matter, but I guess I prefer the version with more capital letters. It underscores how a headline is a Different Sort of Entity from an Ordinary Declarative Sentence.

Rare, indeed. Did either one flinch and change it later in the day?
