    Prognosticate

    A puzzle of sorts: fill in the blanks in current news stories from CNN and BBC. Addictive.

    I picked an article I had read a few hours earlier and still got about a third of the words wrong. <img src=/S/stupidme.gif border=0 alt=stupidme width=30 height=30>

    I might do better with an article I have not read and know nothing about. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    I feel about the same. I read an article about the removal of the feeding tube from Mrs. Schiavo, then watched a TV news report, and still could get only 16 out of 20.
