No seriously...now I'm just messing with people by changing the headlines to show my bias. I do not really believe that is what was said and wouldn't tout it if it were true. It makes a great tweet however.

Update: Nobody knows what the hell is going on!

UPDATE AGAIN: this is getting crazy!

Earlier today we started talking about A great article on Sacramento News & Review and another Seattle Times piece by the well respected Danny Westneat represents the only news I am seeing today.

Now UPDATE:
