FAME

Using Google's Advanced Search mechanism, I checked to see how many mentions Lady Gaga got in the last twenty-four hours -- 119,000,000 [yes, one hundred nineteen million]. Sarah Palin got 1,160,000 -- not quite one tenth as many. Clearly Sarah has some work to do.

I wonder how many Elvis Presley and Karl Marx had?
Just a thought

988,000 and 76,500 respectively. Google hits are not, I think, a measure of lasting importance!

It would be interesting to see figures for previous twenty four hours tomorrow in respect of hits for Jesus today, I must start using advanced search.
