October 12,2006 | LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- For the first time since federal troops escorted nine black students into Central High School 49 years ago, the Little Rock school board has a black majority.

The story does not explain exactly why federal troops needed to escort those 9 black students into the school if Little Rock had a black majority school board before the incident. Or maybe they just don't explain why the AP is employing writers and editors who have very little grasp of how to use the English language.
