Well .... ferenc, it was released for publication. I could not get it to download on my computer. It was getting late, so I opted to put in link to the sketch so I could at least update for readers. And I agree, very good news no one was injured.

I hate to be picky here, but just what kind of "dark bread" did this guy have? Pumpernickel? Russian Rye? Doesn't anyone proofread theses articles before publication?
