    One of the side-effects of Google News -- which crawls the web looking for news articles, and then uses a secret algorithm to decide which ones to post, is that occasionally an article that's not yet ready for public consumption gets posted.

    This one showed up today, and I thought it was pretty funny.

    (Note: The actual article was not written by or hosted by the Chicago Sun-Times, despite the way Google has presented the information.)

    Sometimes drafts are better than the final product, in this case!

    Looks like somebody's goofy e-mail that accidentally got Googled.

    Somebody has too much time on his/her hands.
