That seems to be lion country over there.
Was there a telephone alert?

Hey, Walter, read the date on the article - May 2004. I think you're safe.

That seems to happen on this forum from time to time - are they trying to provoke new discussions, or is it just some phantom in the machine? They should waterboard that lion and find out where the den is.

When a reader comments on an archived story (this one for example, from May 2004), it appears in our Town Square forum, and at first glance looks like a current topic or news item. The "posted date" is there to help clarify the original posting date of the story.

I have been water boarding both the lion and the bear to get the truth.
But it is not working so well. I think I will try banana with chair, next.
