    You're not the only one. The human mind doesn't read words as sequentially as you might think so sentences like this can be quite confusing.

    Try writing sentences some time with the first letter and last letter correct but with everything else mixed up. It's surprising how easy the mind interprets by taking the first, last, then filling in the blanks in the middle before fully reading.

    Same here - I thought they released him.

    Perhaps "Press Release" should have been in the title.

    This thread currently had 400+ views mostly because of the misleading subject title.
