Reply hazy: Ask again later

Tell you what. Since you guys can't make up your minds, why don't you give me the 50 cents and I'll provide the answers:

Sounds likely
Don't bet on it

Does that clear things up?

Really, though, this is one of those breathtaking, DiMaggiovian, tell-the-grandkids-you-were-there achievements in 1A hed writing.* Not two, not three, but four Stupid Question heds above the fold! (If you missed it, the fourth is "$1 gas?" in the armpit of the lead.) It'd be nice if newspapers calmed down and just told you stuff.

* True, the Freep has four bangers on the front today: "Win $2,500!" "Take the money and shop!" "Noel Night tonight!" "(Holiday) Lights, camera, action!" But they're all in reefers, one's below the fold, and Orlando has two exclamation points downpage anyway.

Looks like Orlando would prefer 75 cents for the answers.
