Blogerror: Interstate 69 Story Was a Hoax

In a demonstration of amateur blogging, I used information from a blog I was unfamiliar with as a source for my previous post on Interstate 69. The link for a report on legislation by Rep. Hostettler was to The Hoosier Gazette, which if had I looked more closely I would have seen that it is a site that uses both fiction and real-life stories. The story was apparently a total hoax. I apologize to the Indiana congressman, and congratulate the Gazette on very funny gag, which snagged me and other bloggers.
