The reporter said the liked your analogy, Justin. And I *did* tell her
you developed it. But she had a *very short* deadline. Better to get
a generally accurate story with a tiny boo-boo than to get nothing
at all.

Anyway, I accept the blame for the incorrect information. The reporter
got it directly from my lips. Sorry. I sent them a little e-mail.
