Which is it, young fella?

The Fair 'n' Balanced Network seems to have found a way around the AP's metric issue (below): Use 'em both!

The newer hed (captured around 9:20 a.m. Eastern) also manages to promote Chelyabinsk (pop. ~1.1 million) from village to city, though how something that "shattered about 18-32 miles above the ground"* managed to "hit" the village (or city) goes unexplained. Any day on which your homepage also features "Crippled Carnival ship reaches Alabama port," "Gal pal model took four bullets" and "Why is Homeland Security buying so many bullets?" is clearly a busy one.

* The story itself also puts Chelyabinsk's population in seven figures. When you can say "terror from above," o
nly the weak read the story before writing the hed.

If only someone had spelt 'ton' as 'tonne' in the first place, all this would have been avoided
