FTL Confirmed?

The OPERA team has re-run their experiment that measured time-in-flight of neutrinos as faster than light (FTL).  This time they used shorter pulses (removing one area of uncertainty in the original experiment) and did a better statistical analysis.  Result: FTL time-in-flight confirmed

This doesn't mean there's general agreement that physics is broken.  But it is one (unexpected by most) step in that direction.
