Well, the headline got me to read on, and I was moved to tears by the beauty of the exchange. I wouldn't have noticed the incongruity of the headline and the content if you hadn't pointed it out. Of course, you're correct, they are a little incongruous, but maybe it's OK here. Words are imprecise tools… demand/request, started/resulted; not so far apart for me in this context, not enough to soften a functional (if imprecise) headline.
