Two for one

What atracts more newspaper readers, crime or religion?

Both, if you go by today's story about the guy who was convicted in Ulster County Court on a bunch of felony charges, among others, after several incidents, including one in which he entered a Dunkin' Donuts shop and said he was "Almighty God" and King of the United States."

As of 4 p.m. today, that story had been read a whopping 10,146 times on our Website. I think it's a Freeman record. The only other one I can recall that came close was the Art Garfunkel pot-bust story -- and it had worldwide attention after being picked up by The Associated Press.
