    Yes ixchelkali, hence my reference to churnalism, cut and paste journalism off press releases. Bye, Alex

    Yes pollycbr125, that is where I was looking earlier and why I concluded the media releases were not from the SMC. Bye, Alex

    PS unless of course they sent a release privately without posting it on their site.

    I'd say that pretty much sums it up. My guess is that the SMC is the source and that it's not accidental. My personal, humble opinion is that they have no shame and no integrity.

    I think they will have sent a release out but not posted on SMC website yet they are too clever to look bad breaking an embargo . will be interesting to see if the wording of such reports changes somewhat over the coming hours

    I agree, but I also understand Kina. Sometimes we have to protect ourselves from all the negative emotional energy that reading crap news stories engenders. At least, I do. Sometimes I can't afford the energy that anger uses, and it can be hard not to get angry at the lies and misrepresentation. I jump in when I have the energy and pull out when I don't.

    Hi ixchelkali, it all depends on the person. Not everyone is up to dealing with bad spin all the time, but some of us try from time to time. I understand when people can't or think its a bad idea for them, I have had years where I could not have handled it at all. Bye, Alex

    Funny, ironic and sad all at the same time. It's a kaleidoscope of emotions!

    Are the papers in question part of the same syndicate?

    Well, it made me cry. I think it is about a lost hope.
