23. Will, i wish you were correct.
Jason may be right on this one, but I doubt it. For a look at Mr. Leopold's past, see:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A18624-20...

One paragraph:

"The release fleshes out a troubled career. Leopold says his grand larceny conviction in 1996 was for stealing compact discs from his employer, a New York music company, and reselling them to record stores. He says he was fired by the Los Angeles Times "for threatening to rip a reporter's head off." Leopold says he quit Dow Jones Newswires in a dispute over his beat but later learned the news service was planning to fire him because of a correction to one of his Enron stories: "Seems I got all of the facts wrong." "

It seems Mr. Leopold has gone from one writing job to the next. Getting the facts right is a real obstacle to his employment.

I write this as a former news reporter from many years ago.
