Einstein May Not Be Wrong

From the web pages of 'Wired Science'
Faster-Than-Light Neutrino Results May Be Due to Bad Cables
From the web pages of 'Reuters'
Was Einstein wrong - or was the cable loose?
Physicists at the CERN research institute near Geneva appeared to contradict Albert Einstein's 1905 Special Theory of Relativity last year when they reported that sub-atomic particles called neutrinos could travel fractions of a second faster than light.
Now a year later the scientists behind the claim say there could be a problem.
It seems that the claim that neutrinos can travel faster than light may be incorrect due to faulty equipment.
Einstein may get a reprieve as his theories withstand rebuke.
Personally I think it will just be a matter of time before someone does prove that the speed of light is not a universal speed limit.
But right now it seems like ole' Einstein still has a reason to smile!
