I thought now would be a good time to remind you what constitutes news. To paraphrase The News Manual, news must be timely, it must be true (although this requirement has fallen out of favor of late), and it must be unusual. This article definitely meets all of those requirements. However, it does not qualify to be added to our list of awards. Another beautiful thing about this post is that there is more than one conclusion that one might draw from this information. I’ll leave that as an exercise for the reader.
