"It's all Matt Blunt's fault, honest!"
"And please don't notice that I spent nearly a week defending the report!"
The MIAC report has been retracted, but I wonder whether it's possible to unring the bell.
Suppose you work in a cubicle at Corporation X. One day, Memo #8675309 crosses your desk. It warns you to be wary of Gay Rastafarian Swedes, because they may be dangerous.
Weeks later, another memo crosses your desk, saying only that Memo #8675309 is null and void.
Now, a little time passes, and who walks into the office but a Gay Rastafarian Swede?
Do you remember the second memo? Or does the phrase "Gay Rastafarian Swede" connect a couple of neurons in the back of your mind? Wasn't there something said about them being dangerous awhile ago?
