Lede of the Year Award

This is off the Huffington Post, which unfortunately doesn't credit the source, but here is my candidate for lede of the year. And trust me, gems like this do not get written accidentally. Some writer thought about every word.

"SANTIAGO, Chile — Madonna is causing "crazy enthusiasm" and "impure thoughts" on her first concert visit to Chile, a prominent retired cardinal complained on Wednesday, as he paused in a tribute to a late dictator to denounce the pop star."

And the second graf ain't bad either:

"Roman Catholic Cardinal Jorge Medina criticized the flamboyant singer during his homily at a Mass in honor of the late dictator Augusto Pinochet, who oversaw the deaths of some 3,200 dissidents during his 1973-1990 rule."
