Meta-News

If you haven’t noticed, a lot of people are talking about the religious leader formerly known as "the Pope." The New York Times supplemented the Business, Arts and Metro sections yesterday with a special "John Paul II" section.

While there is an overwhelming amount of news, this article caught my eye. The headline is: 35,000 New Stories on Pope After Death.

By my count, it seems that it is more like 35,001. Either that or it’s time to start a new tally for the number of news stories on the number of news stories about the Pope.
