Excuse me one moment...

Friday morning at 11:21 am?????? Why would you email people at 11:21am about a radio interview that was approximately nine minutes away? I mean seriously, ever heard about "lead time"?

Update, 8:48pm: I almost forgot to mention that this was the first email! The following arrived four minutes later...
Subject Correction on time for Paul Hinman radio interview, 11:30 am, five minutes
I actually missed all the "11:30pm" references, partly because I knew that Rutherford was on in the morning. This is even worse, I'd submit.
