Can the date of initial publication show on the hub. I think that many of our hubs are related to current situations or new breaks, and in a few months if we say that a particular incident occured a week ago, the exact week would be unknown. Unless, the person reading the article already has the time frame in mind.

It might turn people off to see how long ago some things were published (the legendary "evergreen" content HubPages so extols). I'd add the date in the text or title, if it's only going to be currently relevent.
We're sort of constrained for horizontal space on that page, especially for people that use long words in their hub titles. Do you think first published would be more useful than the last modified date? Or is there something else we could drop that isn't useful? I'll see what I can do.
