I googled Shirley Sherrod this morning about 8:30 and got about 880,000 hits. Did it again a few minutes ago and got 1,330,000 hits. Such is the pace of the Internet.
[Updated: at 9:23 am, 7/21/2010 it was 1,610,000 hits. Granted I didn't put the name in quotes, so it's not all that Shirley Sherrod, but it's an impressive jump.]
[Updated at 4:29 pm 7/22/2010 shows 158,000,000 hits. Guess that reflects all the tweets and blog post comments.]
