When will repairs be repaired?

The breaking news this weekend is that yet another internet cable connection the Middle East has been severed.  What?  Is this some kind of weird and unusual anti-terrorism campaign?  Does somebody really not like the Internet?  Is it the end of the world?

More importantly,  does it mean the end of CNN’s ability to spot-edit on the fly.  I note the third paragraph of this article which states that”it was uncertain when repairs on it [the cable] would be repaired.”  This is not a direct quote – it’s a paraphrase.  Which means that someone picked up this shining gem and thought it sounded gud together.

Now, I’m aware we’re all under a lot of pressure and under a time crunch here.  I myself have lots of cleaning to do today even after I finish blogging here.  But still – if you need help CNN, TEAL (Typo Eradication and Advancement League) is here for you!
