By saying it "could just as easily" point to your plausible reading, you acknowledge the plausibility of ryhog's reading. And while your reading is plausible, it's more likely that the other reading is the one Riedel intended, and thus the basis for the headline (which is summarizing the main point of the column).

However we parse it, this minor, debatable semantic point hardly seems worthy of the argument (and suggestions of ignorance) it has engendered.
