85. It's far too late for me to edit the OP.
And having been a mod, I know that's not something they do. The best that can be done is for me (and others, below) to post the updated link here in the thread.

I still think it's weird they changed the story so soon. I've posted a lot of news items over the years I've been on DU, never had this happen before. :shrug:
