Hmmm... then if they are right, we're all wrong, because 9 is the number I've
always seen as correct.

OTOH, we *could* have been all wrong, all alone, since this is the sort of thing
that just gets perpetuated from publication to publication and mouth to mouth.

Do they explained why? [Are P.J. and Pete still the ones behind these things?]
