    Worth noting Coleman has been tested 11 times this year, including 6 times this quarter. It will be interesting to see when the alleged missed tests occurred.

    Sorry. I didn't mean to imply that there was an error in your post. You're quite right--the headline is misleading.

    Missleading headlines are so common in both print and media, I wonder if they teach that in journalism school.

    The problem is far worse than it used to be as news organizations cut back on staffing, particularly in the proofing/quality control areas. Not atypical, I think, for a writer not to do his own headlines, but now there's nobody who is vetting one against the other to make sure they jibe.

    Not sure what you mean. Like amazon.com is not the same as aboutamazon.com?

    Clicking on "Top Stories" at AP.org brings you to apnews.com

    The Times and The Post have lots of staff and yet the writers generally don't write the headlines... and the writers have bitched about this occasionally...

    Ya gotta love the Daily Mail! In an article about CC, they can't help but bring up their favorite American punching bag.
    The Daily Mail printing the truth for once. This innovation should be applauded.

    Does the system acknowledge every text it receives? Lost texts can be a real problem, especially when one is texting from outside the US to a recipient inside the US.
