16. Someone in another DU post said they saw it on another forum, too.
Edited on Fri Oct-28-11 12:36 PM by woo me with science
I suspect talking points are being distributed, and someone at the central office was stupid enough to try to use this article as a suggested post.

At least one DUer who posted this seemed to actually believe that the order had been passed, as he linked to an erroneous (planted?) BLOG post celebrating the passage and snarked at me for not bothering to look up the executive order.
