Re: A new SOP for the CG?

Since the source is a well recognized serious newspaper, and it was on the internet as well, why, it must be true! Just look at the other headlines posted in the sidebar, really important stuff.

But thoughts like this must surely pass through the minds of CG personnel at times...
