When is a nut not a nut?

This week's "Weasel", Grim LeRogue, tells the New York Daily News in today's edition that his bull-rush onto the field at Yankee Stadium earlier this week wasn't as malicious as was originally reported. Instead, it was all a publicity stunt to sell a book, which, unlike our initial report, has nothing to do with 9/11. Instead, it's some self-help manual aimed at kids. Unsurprisingly, LeRogue is currently being treated at Bellevue, and now he's trying to distance himself from the more negative images of the incident, including a picture of Yankee slugger Alex Rodriguez with a gun drawn on the picture and aimed at his head.

What Mr. LeRogue, nee John Rogan, fails to understand is that in these sensitive times, the media will assume the worst when they see something controversial and/or dangerous in content. No amount of self-spin-doctoring will completely reverse the initial press diagnosis, if you will, but let's give the guy a little credit for trying to be contrite.
