FBI to Investigate Retouching of Pictures in Consumating Profiles
It's July 3, right? Not April 1? Or "National Make Up the Stupidest Press Release You Can Think of Day"?

Dr. Brian E. Ulicny, senior scientist, and Dr. Mieczyslaw M. Kokar, president, Versatile Information Systems Inc., Framingham, Mass., will receive approximately $450,000 in funding for the 3-year project entitled "Automated Ontologically-Based Link Analysis of International Web Logs for the Timely Discovery of Relevant and Credible Information."
