Editorial Sloppiness

NASA's 'Cycle of Smugness', editorial, Washington Post

"According to the report, it took the personal intervention of Mr. Griffin, shortly after his appointment, to delay the shuttle's scheduled launch to deal with the issue of ice breaking off the external fuel tank."

Editor's note: A. Its 'Dr.' Griffin

B. Transcript of NASA Press Briefing With Mike Griffin and Bill Gerstenmaier 18 August 2005

"Did I have a role? Yeah, I had a role. I would hate to say that I went to an engineering review and sat there like a potted plant. On the other hand, you know, we did not emerge from that review with the direction that Mike says we're delaying the launch. I mean, that didn't happen. So I'd rather not have it categorized that way."
