funny bit from Opinion Journal
This cracked me up and I hope one day I get lots of email like this from readers:

Yesterday's item on physicist Stephen Hawking's revised views on black holes makes reader Charles Austin suspicious:
I don't know whether Stephen Hawking lied or not with respect to black holes, but the timing of his statement is very suspicious coming as it did just before the Democratic Convention next week. Clearly Mr. Hawking has flip-flopped on the critical issue of the permanence of black holes. Why is he now implying that matter can escape from beyond the event horizon via some quantum nuance? Who benefits from this sudden July Surprise in what he calls "astrophysical science"? What did Mr. Hawking know and when did he know it?
