Good tease, Michael, and taken as such. I also thought it ironic that 
your point was ratified by Fox.

I am skeptical of 'news' originating from blogs, partisan websites, and 
so on. Yet in a sense, those very blogs form a rapidly self-correcting 
system, like the genius behind wikipedia or the Rathergate that has 
damaged CBS. Left or right, your comment about the symmetry of blind 
spots "come in pairs" as you say, is a nicely turned phrase.
