Thank You to everyone who has helped.  This was tough (the story was
very different from a typical Slashdot story these days), but we got
through. :-)  The story got posted at a new URL, though:

93 comments so far.  Now I'd appreciate some community help in
moderating the comments thread.  As expected, a lot of people
inadvertently posted misleading comments (jumped to conclusions without
reading), which I and (GM) corrected with further comments.  Can our
corrections be voted up such that the truth is more easily seen? :-)

If anyone is curious, we got 4000+ extra website hits from Slashdot so far.
This would be nothing new for JtR (it gets this much and more daily anyway),
but it is significant for Owl.

Thanks again,
