*The Times story in question: Surprising Friend of Gay Rights in a High Place [NYT]

Telling? Oh please. A story on Scalia's opposition to gay rights would have used the word just as many times. Or a story on Christian legal cases would use repeatedly use variations on that word. Stories about things tend to mention the thing that they are about.

But you keep on counting there, Tones. We'll keep winning.
