Recent News?

An article in today's Tennessean discusses "a 13-page decision handed down recently by the Tennessee Supreme Court."

"Recently?" I suppose the writer used an intentionally vague term. "Recently" tells the reader less than he would know if the writer had said "yesterday," or "last week" or "last month" or "last year."

The court filed the opinion four months ago in December 2007.

If the newspaper is so understaffed that it is unable to cover the state supreme court in anything approaching a timely manner, I'm looking for a job.

Regardless of that, I will read the opinion and may comment further later today.
