Just in case Grab's point was missed--any time during the 132 days, the "maligned" party could have changed the text, just as simple as that--The fact of the matter is that, for one reason or another, he did not use this recourse--

Another thing that interests me is that he uses the "Cut open the pillow/gossip" story, and claims that his own mother told it to him--now maybe she did tell that story to him, some 60 or 70 years ago, but I find it interesting that that story is floating around on the internet now--a typical PR device is to grab a quote out of the and then stick a more credible attribution on it--I know this from my own years of experience--

My short point being that this seems, more or less, to be a suspiciousl convenient "opportunity" for the head of an organization to make a point about a law that they feel is unfair--
