Bad Shot/Thank God for All Those MSM Editors

The New York Times headline reads, "U.S. Spy Satellite, Power Gone, May Hit Earth." The story says:

A disabled American spy satellite is rapidly descending and is likely to plunge to Earth by late February or early March, posing a potential danger from its debris, officials said Saturday.

Officials said that they had no control over the nonfunctioning satellite and that it was unknown where the debris might land.

But the debris will land, yes? I'm no expert in orbital mechanics, but I'm pretty sure that a falling satellite is gonna crash somewhere on Earth, eventually. So who wrote that boneheaded headline?
