    so it's no longer erroneous.  But it still doesn't have much information.  So, no tip/rec from me until more is added.  Just like I said in a previous New Rules Diary:

    Have you ever opened up a diary with a big flashy "BREAKING" in the title, only to find it has just one, maybe two sentences in it, and the second one is, "I'll post more details when I hear them"?

    You find that irritating?  I know I do.  A two-sentence diary......is not a diary.  It's a comment parading as a diary, yet you posted it anyway.  Thanks!  You just wasted 5 seconds of my life that I can never get back.  Now multiply that by the 100 other readers that clicked on your diary at the same time that I did, and you're responsible for the wastage of 500 precious seconds.  We could have used that time for searching for YouTube videos of French bulldogs struggling to get up or Bulgarian Idol contestants failing at singing Mariah Carey.

    Yeah yeah, I know it's tempting to be the first one to post a potentially big story on the Great Orange Commie Pinko Blogosphere, but is it too much to ask that you take the time to post at least three paragraphs with four sentences in each one before hitting Publish?  Maybe include a link to the news item, with a blockquote of relevant text if they're available?  Oh, and can you include a little, just a little bit of your own analysis of the news story you're posting about?  I mean, all that might take you an extra 15 or 20 minutes to do, but you'll at least have a diary with some relevant information.
