Hedging Their Bets

Hatched by Dafydd

I suppose the Associated Press can be excused for an excess of caution, presumably driven by the terrible error in falsely reporting that the trapped miners in West Virginia had been found alive, when in fact all but one had died. It's hard to imagine what else could have produced the headline in this AP story about Ariel Sharon's massive cerebral hemorrhage today:

Sharon Reportedly Alive After Surgery

Yes, let's not be hasty now... those Israeli brain surgeons can be pretty tricksy sometimes!
