Already, going back to this BFD post from November 14th, we find the link to the PD story coming up as "story not found" and the website http://www.savencb.com/ taken down. The vote does not occur until Friday, the day after Christmas. The newly coined term "premature capitulation" comes to mind as a descriptor of the way a lot of things seem to go around here. Cookies spilled, everybody's already gone home.
Thanks to Carla Rautenberg for the link to the WaPo article. I'd missed it, and I'd imagine I'm not alone.
Carla Rautenberg adds this background from the Washington Post.
