  1. Rob, you never cease to amaze me. Nice touch on this headline.

    The headline this time is accurate, but I find it odd that you gave emphasis to the “… for now” point this time when you didn’t last time. It’s funny how the media in general gives us neutral headlines when the facts are so crystal cut that they have to, but they slant and bias them againt us when they feel they can.

    I’m also disappointed that you failed to correct (or simply agree that it could have been more precise) your previous headline, especially in light of this one.

Your no different than the mainstream, and its unfortunate you’ve failed to distinquish yourself. It’s unfortunate that you refuse to correct (or simply admit) the previous headline could have been more precise while you my recommendation here.
