Pho's Akron Pages Experiences a Plumbing Surge

Checking in on the SiteMeter this evening I was shocked to find this:

As you can see, the hits went suddenly insane around 8:00. Did the clones discover how to run a Google search? No, the majority of hits were from searches for Cindy George.

Turns out, I missed what Redhorse picked up -- that George was interviewed on Dateline tonight. Kind of a ballsy move given that you don't want to give the Supremes a reason to take up the case, but there you go.

As it happens, the featured Classic in the Straight Dope e-newletter was about the surge in plumbing use during commercials of widely viewed television programs. It's an interesting, what's the word, confluence.
