- One sentence - one source ... it just doesn't work. --SVTCobra 02:42, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

- I was not debating that this should be published or the top story ... it just seemed that you were going about it a bit backwards. 1) publishing with one source and one sentence in that story; 2) then making it the top story in that same condition. IMO we should have verified story (two independent sources) and at least 2-3 sentences. --SVTCobra 03:12, 20 February 2008 (UTC)
