A simple example of misleading headlines...

If you link to this story, you will see that .." Ike Destroys Oil Facilities."

You must read 5 or 6 paragraphs to see that there was much less destruction this time than under Katrina..or other disasters.
And World Oil Prices have continued to go down.. So?...Headline Writers are idiots too..


It would be like............"Storm Hits..Stoplights out at Main and Lincoln.."..
Sure the storm will knock out some stoplights...so what?..

1. I don't think they know the extent of the damage.
They're speculating.

.all initial signs are that major production will not be interrupted.
,, If production were to be interrupted for a long time, we would already know that certain refineries ..."were destroyed.or damaged..."..etc..
but that is not what has happened,,,. more fear.....more fear..........more fear.......
