Today in 'Hey, that's not news...'

Someone got paid to 'write' this. Paid money. For real.
This just in: The Pope's hat blew off!
Also, Kiev is burning, but hat!
Yup, Pope Francis's hat blew off his head yesterday during his weekly address outside of St. Peter's Cathedral and NBC News was there. I sure hope the people who hand out the Pulitzer for journalism were watching. So while the internet is functionally infinite and journalists and news sites aren't constrained by column length limitations, that's still not news. And yes, I realize that by even referring to how not news this is, I am, in fact multiplying the number of words written about this stupid incident by a factor of a thousand, but I just had to say something.
