I may vomit

What do you think is the lead, screaming, headline top story on the CNN web site right now? With video no less? The shroud of Turin, which some Christians believe is Jesus Christ's burial cloth, went on public display Saturday for the first time since it was restored in 2002. Two million people, including Ratzi himself, are expected to view it. Of course the article is Fair and Balanced concerning the authenticity of the artifact.

Unfortunately if you try to research the shroud using the Internet search engine of your choosing, you will find the first two or three pages of results are dominated by tendentious horseshit. Here's the 4-1-1. I mean come on now. This is a no-brainer. CNN needs to get a grip. It's embarrassing, on the same level as crop circles and the Jersey Devil. Can't we please grow up?
