83. Why I don't believe it's a typo ...
"His PDB runs 11 and one-half printed pages, instead of the usual two to three, and carries the title, "Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S."

:tinfoilhat: This is going to sound silly and I'm sure I'll get nailed on it ...

Why would you combine the number "11" with the word "one-half" - wouldn't you keep the format the same?

11 1/2 or eleven and one-half

Think about it. You wouldn't type $12 and sixty-eight cents, you'd either type $12.68 or twelve dollars and sixty-eight cents

Maybe it's lame, but sometimes the simplest details are the most telling. ;)
