   Could you perhaps enlighten us as to what details (or major points) the Times got wrong?  Btw, it's interesting that the Serenity Prayer is stirring up so much non-serenity.

Thanks, Ben.  The Times got some things wrong in the story, but, given the complexity of the material, that was inevitable.
