And speaking of ...

... that unheated cattle train to Siberia, here's the top story at Fox as of this writing. Apparently someone hasn't learned the distinction between "public will love new B" and "A says public will love new B."

Unlike cop reporting, where not knowing the difference between "Smith hit Jones upside the head with a Louisville Slugger" and "Police say Smith hit Jones upside the head with a Lousiville Slugger" can have a genuine impact on your financial well-being, this one isn't going to get you sued into the next county. But it does have the disadvantage of making the editor look not just professionally inept, but supremely inattentive to Fox's normal routines.

Usually, it's not much fun watching wild beasts eat their young. For occasions like this, though, God made buttered popcorn and Good 'n' Plentys.
