Jesus Christ News

In a recent article, Jesus Christ was hyperlinked. Curious, I clicked on the link to find the following text:

News about Jesus Christ, including commentary and archival articles published in The New York Times.

Not having quite the same name recognition, I can get my own set of factoids, as Scrivener did. There are moments when indeed the air is superheated, and given the weather today, at times 80% of me has been covered in water!
