Where the news at?

Robotwisdom makes this interesting point:

Google News Search # hits
schiavo bulimia 150
schiavo -bulimia 65,300

Now, I pronounce that it would be unreasonable to expect all, or even most, of these Schiavo hits to mention bulimia — most of them have to do with legal and political wrangling and the course of her dying, and the cause of her condition doesn’t really directly enter into these things too much.

You’ve been caveated. Let’s make a fun comparison!

Google News Search # hits
pope parkinson’s 6750
pope -parkinson’s 19,100

If this were science, we could easily compute an ætiology relevance coefficient, or “matter factor” for each of these cases. To educate while I obfuscate, I list each by their name’s meaning.

Figure Matter Factor
Slave 0.2%
Father 35.3%

    I uncovered your blog last week and started follow your posts religiously. I have not commented on any blog just yet but I was thinking I would love to. It’s really exciting to actually contribute to a publication even if it’s only a blog. I really don’t know exactly what to say other than I actually enjoyed reading through 2 of the posts. Nice posts indeed. I sure will keep visiting your blog daily. I learned quite a bit from you. Thx!

    Now you’ve gotten your new web site and also you’re keen to start making some sales! But, how will you make gross sales when you do not need excessive volumes of tourists to your website?
